So here she is, the last, the very last, of the daylilies in my garden to put out their first flower for 2011. Sheridan Square is a reserved daylily. She’s lived in my garden for a few years, and comes up reliably each spring. In spite of this, the plant is still just a couple of fans, just as she started out. And flowers? Yes, she flowers every year, a couple of scapes with a modest number of blooms, held until late in the season when she has the patch all to herself. Then, there they are, offered up sweetly and quietly. Some of her more robust neighbours are still blooming, although they began weeks ago and are just throwing out a few last flowers before retiring for the year and hunkering down to wait for winter. Here are some of the other daylilies that still have a few blooms.

On Monday, we were blessed with a beautiful, soothing rain, a steady daylong drizzle. You could almost hear the overheated earth sigh with relief. The fine mist of rain was perfect for the garden, with no driving downpour to beat down stalks; just a gentle wash of much-needed moisture.
An overcast day, even with a bit of rain, can be great for capturing photographs of brightly coloured flowers that can look washed-out in full sun. The vibrant reds and deep purples seem to shine even more brilliantly in the gloom. Here are photographs of some of the flowers that were singing in the rain.
