New flowers are opening faster than I can photograph them, but the ones that are filling the garden with colour at the moment belong to the Day Lilies or Hemerocallis.
Even though the flowers only last for one day, there are so many buds waiting to take their place on a mature plant, that you have colour for a good number of weeks. This one is H. Stafford.

I’m afraid I’ve forgotten most of their names.
One of my favourites, love the colour.
Some are quite frilly.
Most have quite large flowers, this one though has much smaller flowers.
H. Moonlight Serenade.
This one certainly stops me in my tracks, a real pop of colour.
The plants certainly look better if they are deadheaded each morning, it doesn’t take long and is well worth the effort.
I can see other plants that are almost on the point of flowering, so more “plants of the moment” are in the pipeline, they just keep coming, I hope that I can keep up with them! What is stopping you in your tracks at the moment when you wander round your garden at this wonderful time of year?
