garden party and a little rain

The rain held off for the garden party, and lots of folks strolled around the gardens, then we pretty much drifted inside or onto the front porch for all the yummy food that people brought. Later in the day we had warm gentle rain, and a little more serious rain overnight. It was so much fun that we are already planning another garden potluck party for July–I have to figure out when the daylilies are at peak and schedule one then. Maybe for a brunch or supper, so it isn’t so hot.

By the second week of July the daylilies are exploding all over the garden. Here’s last year:
