Some of our daylilies were crowded out by the very aggressive wild tiger lilies to which I foolishly gave a home. This bloom may have been the best of show for this summer.
I spent the morning cleaning the wildflower garden. It had become largely overrun with tiger lilies and yarrow. Now I like these flowers, but they are aggressive and left to their own devices will crowd out everything they come up against. I need to do some digging, but it is still too hot for that. Mowing, raking, and pulling thistle is about the extent of my ambition at this point. It is at least cleared enough now that we will be able to see the naked ladies when they appear, and that should be in about a week.
Still standing are a few oriental lilies, some echinacea, and the four tomato plants in the front of the garden.
The catalpa, as usual, has produced an abundant crop. BBBH says, "Too bad those aren't edible." It is too bad that there is not some way to turn them into nourishment or money.
Another rather nice daylily.
