I'm just taking a break from pruning the roses in the garden room. Oh...my aching back!
Kansas.1911, Thanks. DH built the fence several years ago. He helped me this weekend with the edging. He even pulled some weeds! I doubt that we are the "Jones" as most of the neighbors do not have flowers. So no keeping up.
Although after we started building the gardens a few of the neighbors did "clean" up their yards.
KathyJB, yes they are daylilies. They bloom over a long period of time, but not continuously. They usually start the end of June and bloom into August most years. I do have a few DLs that re-bloom, and those will bloom even later, sometimes into Sept and even once in a while into Oct. Last year quite a few did for some reason. If I remember right, the picture you posted was taken in July when the bed was in full bloom with DLs. I do have 3 rose bushes in that bed (in the rock circles) as well as 5-6 peonies, some iris, crazy daisies, asiatic lilies and oriental lilies, and yellow primrose. Probably some others that I can't remember right now too.
McCall, what a lovely yard! How I envy you the wooded setting. Living in town as we do, we have a few trees, but that's about it. We have lost several large trees over the past 4-5 years.
dalmatiangirl61, I wish you luck in eradicating the mesquite! Go girl go!
