Today’s photographs feature some of the beauties that have been stealing the limelight around the garden this week. Lest you should think that I have nothing but daylilies, I have added a new page to my blog, a garden inventory of plants. Many of these plants are new this year, so won’t reach their full potential for another year or two. Meanwhile, the daylilies continue to be the stars of the July garden.
When I went out to see what was blooming in the daylily patch last, someone else was already admiring the flowers. This little garter snake (Thamnophis sirtalis) prepared to make a swift exit as he kept a wary eye on my approach. I have to admit to having no desire to pick up or otherwise interact with snakes, but I’m glad to have them visit my garden, even if they’re not so eye catching as Kenton and Rebeccas’ corn snakes! Here are some of the blooms the snake and I enjoyed.
Starman’s Quest is an offspring of Trahlyta. The family resemblance is easy to see, with Starman having a more spidery form. By the time I had visited all the flowers, Little Snake had decided I was no threat and settled down to enjoy the garden in peace.
