Scapes on my Lavender Blue Baby Daylily. Yay!
and scapes on my Baby Blue Eyes Daylily.
A wild rose bud, this rose is native to long island and I got a peice from my mothers yard. I have no idea what the name of this rose is but it's always so beautiful all summer long and is very pest resistant.
Here it is in bloom.

I am lucky enough to have a great friend who gives me her leftover stone. Here is just a rough idea of a patio. Which will soon be surrounded by gardens.
Two days into mulch spreading. At least one more day to go. This is just half of what I started with. Nichole and I split about 15 yards. Half was dumped in my driveway the other half in hers. Who really needs to park in their driveway anyway?
Here are some irises that are blooming today.

Here is my most exciting news, signs of daylily season! Nichole gave me a piece of etched eyes yesterday. Today she showed me a scape in her yard on wisest of wizards. It was quite large already and had many branches off it. I searched every daylily in my garden except for this one because I saw it yesterday and there was nothing. Well just a little while ago I checked on it and there are two scapes!
Here are few more pictures

Parsley and Chocolate Mint
Spider Wort or Tradescantia virginiana
Some pretty dwarf iris blooms
Yellow Archangel or Lamium galeobdolon
Purple Gem Rhododendron
I think this will be my extent of ordering flowers and plants for the spring and summer. Although you never know what I'll pick up in the numerous nursery visits this season. The next big garden purchase will be the yearly mulch order that Nichole and I split. Thank goodness for her large driveway with no trees or I would never be able to get so much mulch at one time. Way to many trees in my driveway.

A good portion of today was spent at the Peconic Herb Farm with my Mom, sister and friends. This was Nichole and her Mom's idea and it just may become a tradition. The grounds were beautiful. Next time I'm bringing the dogs and some lunch.
