The Salem Witch Daylily

Here she is. I thought I had better catch a pic of her before she disappears because, after all, she is a daylily...not a weeklily.

It was really bright out when I took these pics so the colors are a bit washed out.

The true color is a dark maroon with a vibrant yellow.

You need to use your imagination!

Occasionally I have been getting ripe blueberries but the majority will not be ready for a while yet. As I was photographing these, I saw something move and looked closer to see a stink bug...arghhhhh!!! Just when I thought I got rid of all of their food, they are eating my berries. I sure hope I don't have to start ripping out my berry bushes.

The grass is growing on the grave sites.

Hey Teddy!

Watcha doin' back there?

My tree peony pods.

They are so unique when they open. They remind me of jester hats.

The snakes guard the gates.

The hostas and lady's mantel have bloomed.
