What's Blooming

I have little time and no energy so here is a quick post on what's blooming in the yard. I am so irate that just hours after I took these, deer came through and mowed down my hosta, nipped the buds off my daylilies and grazed the hydrangea down. There's always next year, right? Stay tuned for a few posts on what I think about deer.

Hosta scape and bee balm,  Hosta and Monarda

A beautiful daylily that I started from foraged seed, finally coming into its own, Hemerocallis
My sister's wedding hydrangea (was a live plant decoration), Hydrangea macrophylla
Dwarf butterfly bush  and purple coneflowers, Buddleia davidii and Echinacea purpurea

Asiatic lily,  Lilium asiatic
Zebra Mallow (from seed), Malva sylvestris "zebrina"

  1. Ditto. Deer got our green beans and my impatiens. Now there's a fence around the beans...
    Is that phlox you still have blooming?

  2. These are beautiful darn pretty deer:) B

  3. I love bee balm. Mine didn't come back this year :/ I need to plant some new.

  4. All gorgeous! So sorry about the deer. It's always a give-and-take when you live out in the sticks!

    Thank you for sharing at Rural Thursdays this week. xoxo
