God grant you the light in Christmas, which is faith;
the warmth of Christmas, which is love;
the radiance of Christmas, which is purity;
the righteousness of Christmas, which is justice;
the belief in Christmas, which is truth;
& all of Christmas, which is Christ.

Daylilies Update & More

I looked outside & saw several of the daylilies blooming so thought I'd take a few pictures of them for you   : )



Here is what the daylily garden is looking like thus far.  There are obviously a couple other things in there with them   : )

Here are some hydrangeas.  I love hydrangeas   : )

This butterfly bush was bought last year & I'm amazed at how huge it got almost the moment we put it in the ground!

You are my garden twin LOL In our old house we had TONS of Day Lilies and two HUGE butterfly bushes. I long to have a place dedicated to Iris also.

Your garden is beautiful. Thanks for sharing

The colours of the day lilies are amazing. My favourite is the parchment coloured one. Gorgeous!

What beautiful peace and privacy. The daylilies' colors are so magnificent. If we had decent soil I would have them but I already lost two. We planted 3 Pink Diamond Hydrangea trees a few years ago. The Limelight variety trees are gorgeous and I'm thinking of one of those too. Very nice Shirlee!

I don't EVER want to hear you say you're not a gardener AGAIN!! (Did that sound like your mother??? Good - it was meant to!) Such gorgeous, gorgeous, blooms! But my favorite are the hydrangeas....next to lilacs, they're my all time favorite....but, alas, they don't grow well here. I have lost so many....I now only have one left - I've nurtured it and babied it, but it doesn't ever look healthy, and it's a rare treat to get any kind of blooms from it......Enjoyed seeing yours!
