What a difference a year makes in the garden

We put in these daylily gardens last summer after Tom built the new patio, and how they've grown.


  1. It is so true, a year can change the scene of a garden (and there are of course different reasons for it) and therefore I'm looking forward to the coming garden year. Why? I have bought a lot of new daylilies too and I do not know yet how they look like as they are still very little plants.
    Greetings from Switzerland!

  2. They will be beautiful, I'm sure! Thanks for coming by, Barbara.

  3. Wow, what a difference! The day lilies look so lovely! I've always had a fondness for them - my grandfather's house had them on the side and they would bloom in bright orange all summer long. We used to play swords with the spent, dried stems.

  4. I sure love the paved walk/patio! And the lilies are lovely. :)

  5. The lilies are beautiful! Your yard is just lovely... I love seeing your flowers.



  6. Grace, the joy of those orange lilies is that they will grow under even adverse conditions. I just love them, both for their color and for that fact. A great, great flower.

    Thanks so very much, Les. I might have a couple photos of the before and after coming up on the blog. :<)

    Thank you, Beverly.

  7. Hi Nan - I was visiting Barbara in Switzerland and saw your comment. I love your blog! The gardens you show on this post are charming - it is surprising how much they can change in a year.

  8. How pretty this is and what fun to see the before and after photos! Your new area is really beautiful and I see a garden bench in the one photo. It looks a wonderful place to sit and muse.

    Did you see I gave you an award on my blog?
