    We have gotten lots of rain the past week too. Everything is so lush right now. The back yard is hidden because the grass is so tall. It has just been too wet to mow. Hopefully today we will do it.

    Diane, the daylily is so beautiful. I put out about 40 different bulbs and have about 20 that came up and are in bud right now. There are about 5 different ones, but they all are getting ready to bloom!

    Summer temps can wait! Because of the rain, it has been so cool here. (In the 60's-70's!) It is wonderful. Yesterday was graduation at the university and we always have it outside. This is the first year in ten that I was not about to die from heat in my academic regalia!

    Your zinnias are beautiful too! I have never had much luck with them. They always grow really tall and don't do much else. Thanks for sharing the photos!

    Your day lillies are beautiful, I miss the spring flowers that I had up in Md. but growing orchid outside all year makes up for it.
