Blooming Thursday: Lemony Yellows


The first flower on my lemony yellow tour self-seeded from last year. Within two weeks it was covered in buds and blooms and tripled in size.  My friend Laura, referred to it as a Four O’clock, the time it usually blooms.  Our plant must think it’s in a different time zone, as it was in full bloom at 9:00 this morning.

Next up are the ‘Evergreen Yellow’ daylilies surrounding our Magnolia.  Is it just me, or do the stamen look like delicate, curling fingers?

Rounding up the tour, we have Fuzzy little Kangaroo Paws shooting up behind the lilies. They’ll grow to about three feet tall and will bloom now through fall.  Aren’t they sweet?
