This week, the day lilies continued to come out to play. It's a shame they only last for one day, they're so beautiful.......
I'll definitely be on the lookout for more daylilies for next year.
The clearance rack was kind of a bust.....things are winding down in nursery-land. When it starts to get hot here, it's too much work to keep things alive. (hot=80 degrees or more).
I did find a nice cape fuschia, a white lupine, a couple of hostas for a buck fifty, and a Japanese painted fern.
We also made a little field trip yesterday over to Vashon island. I'd never been there before, and it was a short ferry ride over. There was a nursery there that was going out of business, and I can see why. I thought it would be cool and they'd have some great plants. It turned out to be a hoarder's site, and the plants were pretty beat up. I did score a couple of pacific coast iris, and some black currants, but, honestly, they should have just hauled up a dumpster.
The trip was not completely wasted, though, because we were able to stop a a great nursery called DIG. They had some really cool sculptures, and some more cool plants. I came home with an Echinacea, and a kaffir lilly that will be great additions. Another stop, another nursery, another Echinacea. This one with a huge pink flower, called bubble gum. It'll be a great addition.
Next week......not sure what the holiday will bring.......
I'll leave you with this.....
the back a year ago
and today.......coming right along.
