It's downright exciting to go out each morning, now, and see what has started to bloom. The coneflowers are coming on.
I don't know the name of this one. It's another given to me by a friend, years ago. But, I call it the Fireworks daylily, because it's a very prolific bloomer and, at it's peak, all of these little red flowers look like fireworks going off.
Here's one of the new ones I got last year -- Royal Heritage. I took this picture yesterday, and I was out so early, that it hadn't opened fully, yet. It later spread into a huge blossom, and I'm very pleased with it.
Baltimore Oriole was new last year, and bloomed then, too. This is the first bloom from this year and it's a little flawed. But, I just love this big, deep red flower.
