Some daylilies and flowers in the Garden

I walked around the garden last night and took some photos of some of my daylilies and flowers that were blooming. I thought I would share them with you!

My gardenia shrub started blooming the other day and it smells wonderful on the patio.

I planted this Bee Balm (Monarda) when we first moved in the house. The Hummingbirds really love it!

I love this little cherry rose daylily! It is one of my favorites.

These daylilies are really great bloomers!

I bought this daylily when we had the farm in NJ. I dug it up and brought it down to NC with me when we moved here 7 yrs. ago. The name of the daylily is Lake Norman Sunset. How crazy is this I bought it in NJ and moved to NC and the Lake in our area is Lake Norman and the sunsets are just gorgeous!!

I just had to show you my lemon. I have 4 of them growing right now, but this is the largest one!

This peach and maroon daylily is a beauty.

I love tuberous begonias. I bought this one around Mother's Day.

This is the same begonia but the flower is opening more and there are some buds. I can't wait until they all start blooming.

Pretty flowers Sherri! My Meyer lemon tree has been moved outside and the two lemons that were growing all winter inside seem happy. We have new leaves on the tree too.

Ah, yes, another gardener! Surely you have bees on your Bee Balm as well? I love so many plants and too small of a yard. So I focus on plants that fill the three B's:birds, bees, butterflies. Then select ones that have scent. A challenge to say the least in this cool coastal climate of the Northwest.

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
