I walked out back today and realized that we are down to the last few daylilies.
It's always sad to see them finish. Ours were absolutley wondrous this year, thanks to Stacey, who reminded me that they need to be divided every few years. Apparently ours were really ready, because they have at least tripled in size.
This entire poolside bed came from two small patches that I divided last summer.
All of these came to me as starts from friends. A dear friend once told me that cuttings from friends have special energy, which these lilies really seem to have!
Just look at this beautiful hibiscus that Maurie brought home from Whole Foods.
And these coleus are so happy! This hanging basket was a find on Freecycle. It's gigantic! We bought a small pot of 5 different coleus at Home Depot and divvied them up, gave them plenty of MiracleGro, and they have filled out this huge basket and several other pots. I have actually pinched them back since then and the new cuttings are rooting in our kitchen window. I did the same with these impatiens from last spring. I'll be able to spread these out among several other pots that are still empty.
These showed up in the garden one day too.
Need any? I would be happy to share :)
Hope you are enjoying your garden this year! xoxo, Andrea
