Since moving here, I loved the look of Agapanthus but was not able to grow them until I tried some against the front wall in a sheltered "L" shaped place. They love that spot, as this photo of the bloom shows.

Taking a small diversion from plants, I thought I may would mention Fox Squirrels. There are several that come around, and I feed them some intentionally. While much larger than the common gray squirrels, the Fox Squirrels are much better behaved. Unlike the grays, the Fox Squirrels can feed peacefully with ground feeding birds such as various types of Doves. Since Fox Squirrels are not very common, I am including a couple photos of them.
The first Daylily of the 2010 season here was ROSIE MEYER (Alexander, 1957) with the first bloom being on April 22. ROSIE MEYER is an excellent Daylily for this area, and is among the earliest and the latest Daylilies to bloom. It is a repeat bloomer. The one drawback is it cannot be grown in a shady spot because in such setting, it will get the Daylily Rust. There will be more Daylily entries following.
