Flowers, Flowers, Everywhere!

Its getting late in the summer, but I thought I would quicklypost a photo dump of whats blooming in the back yard. Leaves are starting to look bug-chewed, and some things are growin gbetter then others, but what looks good looks really good. Here we go...

Front: Stella D'Oro Dayliliy
Back: Explorer Rose - Samuel Champlain

Lower: Rudebeckia (Black-Eyed Susan)
Back - Daylily - (Black Cherry?)
Upper: Echinacea (Purple Cone Flower)

Hosta Sum & Substance (One Year old)
All our Hostas have yellowed this summer. I am confused.
(Back: Tomatoes as filler plant)

Tomatoes with bumper crop

Daylily - No idea what variety this one is, but I love it.
We've brought it with us through 5 moves. Flowers as big as your hand!

Apple Espaliers reaching upwards. Many are above the third cross on the bamboo.

Another washed-out hosta. I need to research what is going on with these. I also need to weed this garden.

Massive Rhubarb! It just keeps growing!

More plants are budding and in the next week or two we should see our late bloomers all jump into action. Mulch went on sale this week too, so I think I know what my chores for the next couple weeks will include... making tomato sandwiches and watching the kids weed and mulch the garden!!
