I know it is wet and the sun is not sunny.

“I know it is wet and the sun is not sunny. But we can have lot's of good fun that is funny!” says the Cat in the Hat. Gardeners just say thank you Lord for all this good soaking rain. I have an update on the Sunny Border, and then i'm off to celebrate my birthday with my family - look out Outback - country come to town!
You can see that everything has come back and filled in nicely. It's been hot here and many things are pumped and doing good. This is an unnamed daylily from a old gentleman breder here in town. He sells his culled out trials once a year in the Spring.
Echinaciea have come back nicely and are really filling in. A new sea holly is tucked in behind it and will make a nice contrast to the pinks and yellows in this area.
The mandilla vines are loving the heat and now all the rain we have had here in the Upstate of SC. They should be grabbing their frameworks by next week or so.
The center of the bed features an Italian Cyprus Tree, Shasta Daisies, and yellow daylilies.
