Summer Gardening Made Simple

This time of year, the peak of summer in Iowa, I start to think that I only really need two kinds of plants in my garden: lilies and daylilies. They are both (especially the latter) very popular in this part of the country, and it's easy to see why: lots of reliable, colorful flowers and very little asked in return. I guess I'd throw in some phlox for variety, and hostas for foliage, and I've got my summertime garden, with plenty of time to drink a cold lemonade while wandering about admiring all the flowers. Posted by Picasa

Love the lily - Stargazers are my favorite! I say lilies are my favorite flower - until my dahlias bloom and of ccourse I don't say that until after my peonies are done!

Just found you surfing around today. Come by and try out my garden game!
