Garden Photos and a Link to Bermuda

Thought I'd update a few garden shots. Some of these lilies are blooming for the first time since I planted them eight years ago. They're thriving because I moved some to sunnier locations and because, so far, the deer have left them alone. (My mouth to God's ear!!)

The link I posted to our Bermuda photos did not work. If anyone is interested, email me and I'll send it to you.

Alstromeria

Monarda and Lythrum

Peach-colored day lily

Burgundy-red day lily, blooming for the first time in eight years!!

Garden out of control!!!

Your garden looks wonderful! I love that red day lily - what a beautiful color! It's amazing how long it takes for things to take root underground.

Your flowers are so pretty! Glad you found a repellant for the rabbits. Maggie May is shedding by the handfulls, so if you need more cat hair ....
I would love to see your pictures of the trip. Could you send me the link?

What beautiful flowers.
We are trying to grow flowers out front in pots. It has rained so much my flowers have gotten too much water. Now they look kind of sparse.

Say, that looks great, you've put a lot of work into that. I am so happy you are sharing lots of photos of the garden, I miss seeing some of those varieties! I love all varieties of Lilies, btw. I used to grow beautiful tiger lillies...back when I lived in RI
