Daylilies at dusk

The California fires are leading to some pretty colorful sunsets. At dusk yesterday, my backyard was bathed in an eerie orange glow. Even my orange daylilies were extra orange.

How could I switch to summer color when these pansies are still going so strong?!

My verbena would be looking a little more lush if I could just remember to hook... up... drip at the front of that bed.

The other day, I cut back my tree dahlias. They've grown taller each year and since I really don't need them to reach 20+ feet, I thought I'd try this. They were already a bit frighteningly tall, and it's only June. Now they're a little over 6 feet, and beginning to bush out.


  1. Your dayliles are fabulous! I love that electric orange color!! They really stand out, especially at dusk.

  2. In a way the lighting is fun..interesting. But won't it be fun to have bright white light back some day. We will get it back won't we? WON'T WE?
