Remember Betsy Thompson's garden? We've visited a couple of times before (refresh your memory HERE and HERE), and she was one of the gardeners I profiled in my talk in Seattle in February. Betsy, I'm a big fan! Today Betsy's back to share some of her favorite plants. She says, "Some of you may remember my garden, Briaridge, from past submissions, but I have never submitted photos from July. I live in a townhouse near Albany, New York. My house is in the middle of a building of six houses and I have converted my little plot entirely to garden. It is narrow, but deep, so I have been able to create my own little paradise, with many trees, shrubs, perennials, and annuals, a pergola, a waterfall, and several stone patios.
       July is the month for daylilies and, as a member of the American Hemerocallis Society, I have grown several hundred here. I have always had a battle with the deer, but in recent years they have removed so many daylily buds as to discourage me from growing them. Last year, however, there was less damage, so I thought I would share photos of a few of my favorites." I really do need to grow more daylilies. Beautiful, Betsy.
