She says, “I built my home in 2004 and have been putting in the garden ever since. I live in a subdivision of 1600 homes, but you would never know that by sitting in my back yard.”

    Really pretty - the photo on the top right is my favorite - I really like the bright colors of the pink and red together. You're right - you'd never know you live in such a large community - you've made your garden very inviting!

    Hi, Cheryl, looks like you've transformed your yard into daylily heaven. If you're anything like me, you just can't wait for the stretch of summer when every day is a riot of color...I call it my circus time!
    In the top right picture, what is the deep coral flower that is the companion for the tall phlox? At first glance, I thought it was a monarda, then I thought it might be one of the new varieties of coneflower...obviously, I'm clueless so I hope you can pop back in and fill me in.

    I love the colors but its the stone edging that really sets everything off. I can't really tell if the rocks come right up to the lawn, if the lawn is shorter in front of them, or if they are inside some mulch. The reason why I ask is that the irregular aspect of the rocks can make grass trimming tedious. Have you simplified the process? If so, I want to be let in on your secret,

    Great beds and stone borders, but what I love is the unconventional color combinations. Vibrant!

    All that summer color is wonderful, but I'd plant some shrubs too and conifers for winter interest, they look mystical shrouded with a blanket of snow and make fine homes for wintering song birds. Like mainer59 I too am curious about all those rocks hindering grass trimming, I'd not want to spend every weekend on hands and knees with scissors. But much more importantly those huge old trees look mighty close to the house... right now is a good time to have any removed that were they to fall could reach the house.

    Nice! A lot of rock work, too, which is a great foil for your plants. Are the beds raised a bit or "even" with the lawn? Love all the color! You've done a wonderful job in giving your gardens the appearance of a more secluded area than amongst so many homes!

    I like the rock borders that surround your vibrantly, colorful gardens, Cheryl. It adds a charming quaintness to
    it all!
    Couldn't help to notice how healthy and spot-free of powdery
    mildew is the foliage on your monarda (bee balm) and tall
    garden phlox. Either you must grow the resistant varieties or
    very diligent on spray care. ...Sadly, I'm noticing this
    happening on mine within the last couple of weeks or so, but
    not going to fret to much now, considering it's getting later
    in the season.

    You have a huge and beautiful collection of daylilies. Did you keep track of what varieties you planted? Your yard does not have that clear cut development feel. It is so nice you have some larger trees and all those wonderful flowers, to give your place a more established feel.

  10. GrannyMay 09/02/2013

    You know it is summer when monarda and phlox are in full bloom. Yours are obviously very happy Cheryl! What is your secret to keeping mildew off their leaves?

    Beautiful daylilies! I would love to try that amazing purple one. Do you remember its name?

  11. wildthyme 09/02/2013

    Lovely garden! Like the others, though, I'm concerned about that lawn vs stone edging . . . it looks like a lot of hands-and-knees time. Also, how about scattering the low-voltage lighting around the bed instead of just lining it up against the edging runway-style?

  12. Cherilyn1 09/02/2013

    Thanks for all the comments and for viewing my garden! As far as the trimming on the rocks it just takes trimming with the weekeater a couple of times a year. 4 so far this year so the time isn't to bad spent doing it. After so many years its not as time consuming as it once was. However I just love the look of the field rock and I hunted each one down and hauled it here along with about 500 bags of topsoil as the top soiled had all been removed and all that was left was concrete! Clay I mean so I had been amending the soil ever seen. Fiting the right stone in the right place takes some time but I find there is always the right one somewhere! July is the "fireworks" time for me as the over 150 daylilies that I have packed unto this little lot (30X40 ft) explode! So I always have a party for me (birthday) and the garden. The look of surprise is always worth it as people walk into the garden and say they are shocked with how pretty it is and that its even hidden back here!

    bravo, Cheryl for all your hard work and colorful results. hard to believe it's only 30 x 40. stonework is always like working a puzzle and the last stone to go in place is always the most beautiful.

    The red monarda is the older variety and this year I havent had much of a problem with mildew in the garden. The old lavender garden phlox seemed to plant itself next to the monarda and I didn't have the heart to pull it out and the color combonation is one I would never select but it seems to work and really makes both colors pop! As far a conifers tractor1 I would love to add some but I have ran out of room! I do have some shrubs on the other side of the garden with Knockout roses but I entered my submission in a bit of a hurry and didnt include all the pictures that I should have! I have some of the golden pivot and the Mt Bakers White Lilac in 3 different places however I wished I had a evergreen tree for Christmas lights! My garden under the trees is actually on an easement meant for access to trim the trees which has worried me everytime the winds get strong. I hope it stays put! My lot backs up to the 4 acre park in the neighborhood so it will always be there but they did go thru and trim alot this last summer so I hope they leave this native for the privacy and woods effect. I have a love hate relationship with them though as it hard to grow the daylilies in so much shade and the roots of the trees makes it hard to plant anything. Then it drops nuts starting now of which there are thousands that I have to pick up. I pile them up and the squirrels eat on them all winter. I made the mistake of just adding the top soil on top not mixing it well enough with the underlying clay so it has to be watered so I have been going thru and double digging it. I'm in the process of expanding the island garden right now as I going to let the monardo and phlox have that area but I'm moving the daylilies out further so they can have room. The purple one mentioned is the daylily "Lands End" along with Siloam DOuble Classic, Chicago Mist and Becky Lyn. I do know most of the names of the daylies as I have them on a garden diagram but the last 2 years I have gotten them from a gardening friend and I need to have those identified.

    Beautiful mini-presentation of your garden sis. I can attest to the fact that the pictures do not do justice. and I wish you could have posted some from winter too because it looks so romantic covered in snow.
    Just to let your admiring commentators have full disclosure I admit that I am Cheryl's sister and even tho all 4 of "us girls" enjoy gardening Cheryl is the "dame of the daylilies" the "periwinkle princess" and "the fern fashionista"!
    It is also to be noted that Cheryl comes by her green thumb naturally..as both of her grandmothers had outstanding gardens of vegetables and beds of vibrant colored summer blooms. Not to mention the walls of roses. all kinds of roses. But my favorite was the collection of the 157 African Violets that Grandma Bolin had in her kitchen.
    Thanks to Cheryl the legacy of our grandmothers' passion continues to grow and provide endless joy for our family.

    Love the family history, thanks Cheryl's sis. Ever think about sending in pictures? We could have family week if all 4 sisters did.
