Blooms from Next Year

This is Zephyranthes grandiflora common name rain lily.  She blooms numerous times throughout the summer and autumn always after a rain that follows a dry period.

This is Achillea common name yarrow.  Am trying the red variety, will try to dry some to use with Christmas decorations.

White salvia, so hardy and dependable.  Blue variety is awaiting planting.  The bees love this flower.

An heirloom Iris from my Uncle Karl's garden.

Jackamelia clematis and the Ballerina rose.  I planted these together for AppleJack and his daughter the ballerina.  I call them Jack and the dancer.

Hen and her chicks.

Tomatoes--the hope of things to come.  Yes those would be weeds growing in the background.  I have lots of them, want to come help weed?  Wear some protection, the dreaded poison ivy is not fun!

When I took my walk through Next Year, I noticed bloom buds on the day lilies.  Looking forward to seeing the different varieties and deciding who needs to be transplanted.
