rain

we needed it.  it rained over night and until about noon.  a good rain that had time to soak into the ground.  that was the good news.  the bad news that accompanies that rain… wet pollen.  there was no pollen dabbing today.  this is a cross of Thais and Cameroons.  rich and contrasting shades of purple.  four images…

    beautiful and unusual lily… mine did well this year, but they have been languishing for at least a decade, and overgrown. Now we moved them where I can see them, and they are happy about the whole thing. The stems are short… I did get some decent photos. 🙂

      the weather has been kind of strange this summer. here we are a bit short on water overall and several plants are shorter this year because of that. Glad your daylilies are doing better in their new spot.

        not far away … yes, that nice rain was very welcome. Now we need to hope that it doesn’t decide to rain, and rain, and rain…as our weather is wont to do. 🙂
