Hi simbad, lovely picture, do you mind me asking, my daughter rode her bike into my daylily and a couple of the leaves have gone brown, would you just cut them off to ground level :^)

Thankyou Sticki :-) been here 10 years now where does the time go, our house was a self build designed by my husbands cousin and built by our friend who's a builder.
Thanks Carole think the iris is called 'Action Front identified by a nice Goyer:-)
Thankyou Paul:-)
Glad you like it Daylily:-) yes just cut the dead leaves off it'll soon grow some more, hows your daylily doing do you have buds this year?

Hi simbad, yes im really chuffed, i thought i only had one flower scape (is that what theyre called) and i have noticed this evening i have another one, so very pleased and gave it seaweed feed too, !! :^)

Thankyou DD :-) I'll swap you, your gardens gorgeous so much interest for a small garden, love it.
Thats great daylily you should have quite a few flowers this year then, as long as your daughter rides her bike round it:-) our dog has just decided he quite likes seaweed fertilizer!!!!! so having to watch him when he goes out as he'd been digging round some of the daylilies, strange dog.

Hi simbad, ive noticed that there are little buds inside the flower which i havent really seen before because when i bought it a couple of years ago it was already in flower so all new to me!

Yes each scape with have quite a few buds Daylily, does look like just one flower at first but as it grows you'll see there are more, exciting time:-) I've been buying again,wish I could resist lol, I did sell some of mine though so didn't really cost me anything, thats my excuse anyway:-)))),a really pretty one called 'Hemstitched' creamy flower with a burgundy centre and a gold and burgundy edge that looks like its been stitched, the sellers posting on Monday and say it has a flower scape so flowers this year!!!!!

It looks wonderful Kathy and so healthy I'm afraid we will lose so much if it dosn't rain soon , the plants really are dying :o(

Bella lugosi is a stunner! Sorry to hear that Amy! Kath, your border looks wonderful, a true herbaceous border in the traditional English style. I think they are very difficult to do well but this one looks a good one!

Have you had any rain yet Amy? we've had quite a few heavy showers over the past couple of days, thank goodness.
Thankyou Karen, Lulu and Yorkshire, very kind of you:-)
Yes the weather isn't bothering the daylilies is it Lulu:-)
