All over our yard there are orange day lilies spattered about. Most of them came from my mother in laws' yard. I kept digging up the ones that were growing behind her fence. In our area they grow wild on the side of the road. I imagine most people do not really purposely plant them, but I really like the bright orange colors and how they are incredibly hardy and prolific.
Black Eyed Susans - My grandma had these in our yard growing up and now they come up in random places around my kitchen garden. How can you not be cheered up when in the presence of one of these beauties?
Hydrangeas are fading but there is a unique beauty even in that. We have been in drought conditions and many of my bushes stay pretty wilted during the hottest parts of the day.
