Casa Blanca Lilies

They've arrived! More beautiful and spectacular than I remembered. The other day, it was very hot and humid, and their sweet vanilla scent permeated the entire backyard. So beautiful. I've just repainted my bathroom - a very pale green - "white willow" Behr paint - and I'm going to print out a few of these and frame them for the bathroom. Enjoy! Wish I could post the scent.

When we arrived for the final walkthrough before the closing last August, I noticed them in the rock garden in the back. It is so hard to choose, but I think that Casa Blanca lilies could be the prettiest flower there is. Their perfume, shape, everything, is absolutely spell-binding. I am so happy they are here. I've put my iron butterflies around them to protect, and will use them to stake up if needed. They are growing stems and leaves now, and I anticipate their pure white, magical summer arrival.

Busy Bees

We took a walk through the conservation land behind the house, and found that while we were taking a respite, others were very hard at work harvesting pollen from the Prairie Asters:

Such a beautiful office to work in:

Last summer's Hollyhocks

Here are some photos of last summer's (2014's) Hollyhocks. They are the same that were photographed in 2013, but they bloomed even more profusely last summer. In the grip of winter, photos of flowers like these seem like miracles.

Summer Daylilies - Peaches and Plums

While we are in the grips of winter, I thought I'd catch up on posting some photos from last summer. There were two kinds of daylilies that were particularly beautiful. The first have been on the property for a long time - before we moved in in 2010. They are peach, with yellow centers and a rosy ring in the middle. As far as my research can tell, they are "Bunny Eyes" hemerocallis. If anyone recognizes them as something else, please do comment:

There is a visitor in the photo above.

We planted the second variety, "Just Plum Happy", in the spring of 2013. They didn't bloom much that summer, but this summer they really started to flourish:

So pretty.
