July 12-14, 2002

July 12th:

Another shot of 'Buff Beauty'. It's really something!

July 13th:

A beautiful clump of red Daylilies. Name of 'Dewey Roquemore'.

An older Daylily cultivar called 'Nashville Star'.

A brilliant red and a stout stem, tall and robust, lots of bud. 'Chicago Ruby'. Here it is backed by a Rose of Sharon shrub (and lots of weeds).

A beautiful blue Verbena. This is a low growing variety. Nice to have blue in your garden in the middle of summer.

July 14th:

I love this simple, elegant soft lavender Daylily, 'Catherine Woodberry'.

I had thought this was 'Betty Prior', a floribunda, but it might be 'Dainty Bess' a Hybrid tea rose.

A strange, twisted orangey gold Daylily, 'Lily Dache'. Very tall, too.

Looking down on the flowerhead of Achillea (yarrow).

The great grandiflora, 'Queen Elizabeth II'. A new division of roses was named just for it. Mine grows 8-10' tall. Very stout canes.
