It has not been raining in a long time. Yesterday it was raining heavily. When the rain stopped I went to look if it had damaged any of the flowers. They all looked fine but wet. Here are some photos of the Tiger lilies after the rain.
In my post of yesterday I mentioned my concern it was too cold for the petals of the first Strawberry Candy daylily flower to unfold. Luckily I was wrong. It was a bit chilly in the morning and it took the flower a bit longer to unfold than usually. The afternoon was nice and warm and the flower unfolded to normal size.
Already so many more tiger lily flowers in bloom since the first one on August 1st. On the other hand it is a good thing the temperature is not as hot as it was still a week ago. The flowers last longer. But, it looks like it’s too cold for the Strawberry Candy lilies. The flowers are not opening in full size. I hope it will be a little bit warmer so that I will be able to take some nice photos of them too.
The first tiger lily is in bloom. Soon there will be many, many more.
Also my red Dahlia is in bloom. So red. Love it. I should have bought a new, a larger pot this spring. But, I forgot to do it. Will do it next spring.
I, today, bought this green butterfly. I think it looks so nice in the Dahlia pot.
