End of Month Views, May 2014

Little Business Daylilies work well with Knockout Roses.  Roses need deadheading. I will get to it.

Little Business
Gardenias are everywhere as Oakleaf Hydrangeas
finish bloom and Crape Myrtles start.

Gardenias on both sides of the north driveway. The ones under pines are slower to open. The fragrant walk to the mailbox is exciting. They bloom into July.

Looking back from the view in the photo above.
My smaller cycad has 21 new fronds. The big cycad
is slow to put up fronds, the tiny ones are starting.
The Vitex tree at the end of this bed is starting to bloom.
Red Hot Pokers hide a Daylily, seen below.
I don’t know its name.
Hemerocallis lilio-asphodelus

  1. Mmm, I can almost get a hint of the scent… Love your daylilies, and they work really well with the kniphofia, I will have to remember that.
