More July Daylilies

Daylilies are everywhere in July. Here are some varieties I saw on my travels this week. I just might add these varieties to my own garden someday.




 
Here's a good video from First Class Gardens on how to grow daylilies from seeds. Very informative!

Garden Tour Bucket List: Umpherston Sinkhole Garden in Mount Gambier, Australia

The world is full of so many spectacular and varied gardens. And I'd like to visit each one of them, but until I win the lottery that's not possible! However, through the wonders of YouTube, it is possible for a virtual visit. I have found so many garden tour videos, I'd like to share my Garden Tour Bucket list with Sprouts readers. Each week, I'll feature a different garden video tour on my bucket list.

Today we visit the Umpherston Sinkhole Garden in Mount Gambier, Australia. If you are a hydrangea fancier, you will love this one!

Friday's Flower "Lupinus"

I love lupines. They are easy to grow and showy. The bees and butterflies love them. And they seed in naturally. Consider adding these to your perennial border or cottage garden!
To learn more about "Lupinus" click here.

If you have children (or even if you don't) do check out the picture book "Miss Rumphius" by Barbara Cooney from your local library. It's about the Lupine lady and one of my favorites!

Day Lilies in July

These are some of the day lilies blooming in July. I don't know the official names of these, so any reader who does, please leave a comment to let me know.

Herbs: Gigantic Chive Patch

 
This is my Dad's huge patch of chive in bloom.
I have never seen so many chives in one spot and the purple flowers made such a pretty sight.
The bees love them!
It may not show in the photos, but the patch must be three to four feet in diameter.

Anyone know any good uses for chives? I might try drying some to use in the winter.
