Here we are at the end of another week, and I decided it’s been a while since I put up some pictures of the flowers blooming around here. So here we go:
First a couple of Daylilies. . .
At the bottom of the steps there’s some Leucanthemum x superbum ‘Aglaia’ – otherwise known as Fringed Shasta Daisies.
At the corner of the porch, I have a Hosta ‘Blue Angel’ planted. It’s supposed to get up to 70 inches wide and 32 inches tall, but it hasn’t quite made it there yet.
Considering it was just a tiny thing when I planted it, however, it’s done pretty well. Right now it’s about 60 inches wide, and 24 inches tall. The leaves have a bluish cast to them, and get really big.
Here’s a closeup picture of the blooms:
All kinds of little bees and bugs and even hummingbirds like these flowers.
The butterfly bushes also get a lot of traffic from bugs and butterflies and hummingbirds. This bug has orange eyes to match it’s orange and black body.
While it’s an interesting looking bug, butterfly bushes are supposed to have, well. . . butterflies!
In the summer, all kinds of things are blooming, but that’s enough pictures for one post!
