Elainealope Iris Blooming In June


I knew Elainealope iris was a rebloomer, but here in North Central
Texas, I've never had one rebloom for me. I guess
the conditions were just right this year. I went
out this morning to look at the garden and this nice
little surprise was waiting for me.


Newberry Festival is such a gorgeous cranberry color and
has very large flowers. It is a late bloomer, which extends
the daylily bloom season.


This is Savannah Debutante, a double daylily, and also a late bloom
variety. 
 
Here are some photos of other pairings for white
zinnia. This is the first year I've grown Bachelor Buttons.
I can see the beautiful blue color from my kitchen
window. I think it shows up because it is in front of the white zinnia.



You can't see in this photo, (it's not in bloom right now)
but on the right of the zinnias is the Double Delight rose
and on the left is the Red Knockout. 

A returning sunflower. I just love
the rust color on it.

We planted tomatoes again this year. This is by far the largest
one  to date that we have harvested, an heirloom, Boxcar Willie, which
we also grew last year. We decided not to try the
Black Krim again, it just seemed to have a lot of problems
with blossom end rot.

Double Delight Rose, Zinnias And Daylilies


I liked the white zinnias some much in my garden
last year, I planted them again. I received a Double
Delight rose for Mother's Day and planted it in the middle of
the zinnias. The rose White Lightin', I'm sad to report,
has died. 

Double Delight rose has a very strong wonderful
scent and the color of it changes daily
