This is hosta Big Daddy with some volunteer daisies. I wouldn't ordinarily think about hostas and daisies together, but here they are.

Lilla and G have been keeping the rabbits stirred up. Lilla usually finds them and then G chases them out of the yard. I've been calling him Super G because he really does fly faster than a speeding bullet. Tonight he brought a baby bunny into the house. And then later, Mark found Lilla lying on our bed, staring at yet another baby bunny. Right there on our bed, she's just hanging out with a bunny. Of course, it was scared out of its wits. Thank goodness she was just looking.

I don't know what the name of this one is, but it should be Last Dance, or Last Chance, or something like that. All in all the iris season was beautiful. For the rest of the summer, I'll be fighting iris borers and rot, then transplanting and dividing in the July heat. They are probably more trouble than anything else in the garden; but for the show they put on, they get to stay.

No new puppy pictures today because my camera is out of commission. There's no doubt about it tho--the world is a better place when you have a dog. And in this case, even better when you have two. A little penstemon at this time of year helps too. This one is called Chablis. I just found out that penstemon is also beardstongue. Didn't know that. There's another form of it towards the back right in this shot. I'll try to get pictures of both blooming after my camera has been resupplied.

I think she's Lilla, although she goes by Lily too. Here she's taking a rest after getting up at 4:30, exploring the back yard, and taking a walk around the circle. Look at that creeping charlie. More weeding to do today, and I'll have such good company!

Seems like I remember one of my very first posts on this blog was headed "Worth Every Sweaty August Minute". Irises are a lot of trouble--dealing with borers, rot, the constant cleaning up of the foliage, dividing in the heat of summer. . . But for this show, I'll work all year.

Judson is 24 years young today. And he's starting his last year of pharmacy school today too. His first rotation is at the VA medical center. That's a great way to spend your birthday. I love you Judson!
(Thank you, Rachel, for the picture--I love you too!)
