I'm so happy I bought this beautiful peachy pink yarrow last year.
One of my customers, now friend, bought me this gorgeous daylilies for my birthday last year. It was such a wonderful surprise. The variety is Jen Ojay from Oakes Daylilies. I could get addicted to collecting daylilies but they can be so expensive.
Lovely larkspur I grew from seed! I love the pink/orange snapdragons in the background.
