Phlox

I wonder if I did something wrong or if it was the winter that killed the phlox I had in three different colour. Anyway, to my disappointment, they were gone in the spring. So I was very happy when, in the beginning of the summer, a friend said she had too many of this red phlox and asked if I would like to have some. Oh, yes please, of course. The thing is I have admired your beautiful phlox already for many years. I hope these ones will make it through the winter.

Orange Daylily

Orange Day Lily Orange Day Lily Orange Day LilyThe orange daylily is the last one to bloom. Only one stem with about 5 more buds. Since the beginning of the summer I have seen no snails among the lilies but yesterday I saw one on this flower. You can see the petal has some damage to it. Under the petal to the right you can see, if you look close, a small snail. Ufff ! I really thought I had managed to get rid of them .

Two Tuberous Begonias

I’m so happy these two wonderful begonias have been with me already for many years and hope that they still will for many more years to come.
Unfortunately I don’t remember the names of them. The one with the double flowers is one I bought myself. The other one my husband’s cousin gave me. I surfed the web to see if I could figure out their names. The double one I couldn’t find but the other one I think is a Begonia Bertinii. It’s a bit embarrassing but I have to ask my husband’s cousin one more time for the name and then write it down and put it somewhere safe.
