Just Another Monday

             A lone and erect, beneath lights primal flood, a Lily! and pure as any one of you. Mallarme
Thank you Lord for just another Monday, full of sunshine, flowers and the sound of the birds singing.  We sometimes take for granted we will have another day, flowers and the song of the birds.  I went out the door armed with my camera, to take pictures of what the Lord has blessed with me this day.  I not only love roses but all flowers, except marigolds. 
I bought a lot of Daylilies last summer like this is but one.  I want all different colors around our path.
Pink with green eye.

Bought this one at a farm near here.  We divided it last year and I ended up with 3 of these around the walk. These are not  rebloomers I will give away, one, and plant one in Carrel's bed.                                                                                        

This one has a faint ring of peach, very soft.
Light Pink with darker pink and a green eye
Pale yellow

Orange Lilies and roses

Yes I still have some roses blooming.

Still had  these to plant, so I did in a hanging basket.
I did not know there were so many different Salias.  I am not real fond of this one, I planted three but only one came back last year.

I always plant vinca every. This year I planted pink with red center and red with pink center.  Two of the red ones have died.  If I wait until the first of May to plant them, usually I do not loose any.  there is some kind of worm that eats the roots.  I guess there was still some hanging around and why just red I do not know.  I planted them around the walk, I had some left and planted them in another hole, I am having to dig the red ones up and replacing the the ones around the walk.

This year I bought a different Daisy, the one I bought before were always too tall.  I believe this one will be just right.  It is called Butter Cream, opens up creamy yellow and then turns white.  Has a longer blooming time.  The more you pike the more it blooms, so they say.

Pink and white verbena, this is an annual, it has really spread.   Adds a lot of color.

I bought this red verbena hoping it is pereniel.  I am going to let it run in between the two rows of roses.

The coneflowers are beginning to bloom.
I realy did not like this flower much at first, however ave had this one now three years, it has more blooms and the are bigger, and best of all  come back every year.
This tall flower looks like the fire cracker plant, someone gave it to me.  The s stay grean all year and it really multiplies.

I finished with the front garden and went to the back.  This hydrandea  n the front yard and was getting too much sun.  A friend gave me two of these barrels,  so Carrel ed it as a planter for this hydrangea. 

Both of thes hydrangeas were given to me by my grandson Paxton. 

They finnaly tured back blue.
 I was in the back yard I saw this butterfly pass by.  I kept walking and sighted my camera on it and when the butterfly landed, I took this picture.   After I took this picture I went in side left my camera and put my hat on.  While I was taking pictures I noticed some grass in the beds ome plants need water.  My Monday turned into quite a work day, weeding and watering.  While I was beeding over I saw a humming bird fly to my new ystic Spires Blue Salvia, it went from the top to the bottom on one side then from top to bottom on the other side.  I was no more than six feet from him, camera in the house.  I have found my Salvia to y walk.

Hope you have enjoyed just another Monday with me in my garden.  Thank you for watching my garden grow and bloom and will grow one of your own.  Happy gardening to you from me, Juanita.
