Summer signs; Spring cleanup

My first daylily opened:  a reblooming Stella d'Oro.  It's the first sign that summer is on its way.  I'm looking forward to a full display of them, since I have dozens of daylilies in the garden.

Ringing out the old, I pulled up almost all of my tulips and hyacinths, as they have yellowed and flopped.  It added a ton of green matter to my compost bin!

  1. Hi David,

    Your garden is beautiful. I have been enjoying your blogs. I think the unidentified pink bloom is a portulaca also known as moss rose. I have them on the deck in containers and they do very well there. No competing with slugs and snails!
