Showy Orchis, daylilly Seedlings and Clematis

Three exciting things happened today.

While weeding at a huge estate in South Woodstock, we came upon some showy orchis, Orchis spectabilis, which the former groundskeeper had transplanted from a pasture and they were spreading!

All my clematis made it over the winter: General Sikorski, The President, C. jackmani, Jackmani Superba, Bonanza, Ramona and Niobe.   I guess it's not too late for them to go bad.

Seeds I planted which were crosses of the two daylilies, Tuscawilla Tigress and Alabama Jubilee came up.

Also my lilacs seem like they'll be a good stage for my tea on Sunday afternoon.
