Daylilies and the garden

Earlier this week I was sitting on the back porch having my morning coffee and I noticed the first daylily bloom out in the garden. It looked so pretty shining in the morning sunlight.

Now each day more and more blooms are opening and the flower bed will soon be filled with an abundance of color ~ an old fashioned favorite of mine.

The vegetable garden is growing great. We have three raised beds filled with veggies.

Can't wait until these are ripe.

Did you know that when you prune your tomatoes, or I should say pick off the suckers or side shoots, you can root them and replant as a new tomato plant.

Well, it's Friday, and the weekend is here, I'm going to enjoy mine.

Hope you have a good one!

Your garden looks so wonderful! our plants are just trying to survive the rain, rain & more rain we've had - oh well - maybe they'll start growing soon!

Your garden is beautiful. We've been having such a cold spring. Hard for plants to really grow when it's too cold. Mimi

Love the doggy pics! You've taught me something I did not know about tomatoes. I learn a lot in Blog Land!
