While I was mowing the grass yesterday I noticed the lilies are blooming. They face the street so I can't see them from the house.
The butterfly weed is blooming. It is about 4' tall. I have seen a couple Monarch butterflies going between this and the milk weed. There is a bee on the side of the flower here.
The hydrangea is planted right in front of the gas meter. Actually it was here first and they put the meter on the outside of my house 2 years ago and amazingly didn't kill the bush.
Does anyone know what the white long tapered flower is? It is an aggressive plant that sends roots across underground. I have completely dug it out twice, or at least I thought I did.
