Hydrangeas, Cosmos, Primrose and Day Lilies: This Week in My Maryland Garden

Our hydrangeas are blooming in our shady back yard this week. Hopefully the flowers will turn even more blue as they mature.
This is our first cosmos flower of the year. It's just starting to open up. I love that we started this plant from seed. It makes it even more precious.
I believe this is an evening primrose. These flowering plants are climbing up our variegated rose bush, lilacs and fence.
Here's our first regular day lily bloom of the year. It's a sweet pale yellow and I love the frilly edges. In an earlier post we showed you our Stella d'Oro reblooming day lily, which was the first of any kind to bloom this year. The rebloomers are still flowering and should continue blooming through frost this fall.

This is our variegated rose bush (the one that has the evening primrose, above, climbing up it). Every flower is slightly different and I enjoy seeing the various patterns that emerge.

Hope you enjoyed this week's floral photo tour of our Maryland garden! May God bless you!

Which was your favorite photo of the post? What's blooming in your area? Do you have any flower gardening secrets to share? I'd love to hear from you!
