This is one of the last daylilies to bloom in the garden but it is a bright one! It was unseasonably cool today for August with the temperature hovering in the 60's most of the day. I've resorted to fleece this evening, a rare occurrence lately. There are still buds to be found in the garden. This is garlic chives getting ready to bloom. It will be a nice white with the typical allium head on it. The clematis seedheads are also making a statement. The geometry of nature is unparalleled. Also blooming right now are the Geranium 'Rozanne',at least the few that did survive the winter. Once they start blooming in late June they do go right on blooming until the heaviest of frost and shortest of days.
I do have a couple plants of Perovskia or, Russian Sage, but it doesn't thrive here like those I see planted near the coastline. I have a heavier soil which is less to their liking but it does manage to bloom a bit and looks nice with the Coreopsis 'Moonbeam'. Blue and yellow is such a classic combination don't you think?
