Here are a few things I saw this week
during a Second Look.
|Day Lily. The day lily have been suffering under the heat we've been having and have just about stopped blooming. But I did find a bloom to share. What would a summer Second Look post be if I didn't start it with a picture of a day lily?|
|Hosta. The deer have really been chomping away at all of the hosta this year in every part of the yard. However, here and there, a few of them have been able to bloom.|

|Surprise Lily. We only have two stocks of surprise lilies this year. Maybe the others will surprise us and come up later.|
|The seed heads of the blanket flower are almost as pretty as the actual blooms. But it's time to do some dead heading if I want any more blooms.|
