In the Garden

Here are a few flowers open in the garden today.

Look at the fantastic colours in this daylily:
It is one that we rescued from the house about to be demolished in our old neighbourhood.  I'm really happy to have it blooming here!

Penstemon grown from cuttings from my old garden:

Salvia "Indigo Spires", also a cutting from my old garden:

Crinum lily rescued from the hard rubbish collection. It was planted out in the garden, but some of the bulbs were dug up and came here with us. It is still in a pot at present:
 There are at least 4 flower spikes developing, so it seems to be happy here.

And lastly, vireya Princess Alexandra:
She has been blooming since before she came here.
