We finally got some rain last night. This is, of course, just after Frank got the irrigation all working again, including some very cool drip stuff for all my boxes, but man did my yard need water. Everything was so wilted, and we had kept getting clouds and thunder, even some hail, but no rain. It cooled things off nicely, even, though I’m sure we’ll be back to hot and humid tomorrow.
The day lilies that we got last year from David Brook Farm are all out in full force this week. Blooming right now are Strutters, Lilting Belle, Snowy Apparition and Louise Mercer named varieties of daylilies.
