Each month Gardens at Waters East (GAWE) will post a few never before seen photos of “garden life” called - - BLOG SHOTS.  The photos for this posting were all taken during the last days of August 2013.  Two of the many special day lilies that were hybridized here at the Gardens at Waters East are shown at the end of this posting.  They outdid themselves this year, blooming for much of the summer.

  1. Hey there! Everything looks great! Hope all is well. This is one of my favorite times of year in Wisconsin. Thank you for sharing snapshots from your gardens. I'd share mine but it's just flowers:) But for the desert, green is good:)

  2. What a gorgeous photos!
    Wishing you a nice weekend.

  3. Hello :) Thank you for visiting my Blog and your comment. At the moment there are blooming nearly the same plants in my garden as in yours. Unfortunately I had not much time for the garden this year because we are renovating and refurbishing our house. We have bought it some months ago :) All my ballon flowers were killed by big fat red snails :( I hope I get handled this problem next year.

  4. I like your stone stairs, and the plants growing in the crevices. Your daylilies are very pretty, I'm partial to red eyes as opposed to purple eyes. They have nice wide petals and sepals and open flat.
