Congrats on the rebloom ! So far, I've only had three "actual" reblooms...but, most of mine are "fall bloomers", which should start up in August, sometime....IF the weather isn't "too hot", or "too dry"
Graccus still has buds, but the open blossom was pretty well trashed, from the rain. There are some "colorful" things around the yard, though:
the honey bees sure are liking the butterfly weed !
and the mason bees like the coneflowers...everybody has their favorites !
internet explorer gave me the runaround & had to work to get back to you. We had 5 days of heat, now 2 days of rain so nothing doing outside. However daylilies were starting, first '3 seasons' a early small by Bob Sobek, then the old Carl Miliken which came from Ben Hager's gardens, plus a red of the same vintage.

Oh, I'm so after seeing all those blooms. I had some Fulva that I've been rooting out. Why don't the deer snack on those that I don't want? We live in a subdivision in the country and have over 2 acres of open space, mostly grass and my flower beds/border way in the back. DH likes the formal manicured look, when it comes to landscaping around the home.
Thanks ! The DL's are "Rita's thing", mostly. She has them "lining" one side of each driveway, as well as scattered around , in various perennial beds. My favorite one is just ready to bloom...it's an orange one...same color , about, as the old "ditch lily", but, a double flower, and varegated leaves. grows like a weed. Some years there is more white, than green, in the leaves! This year, though, there is very little white...must be a weather related thing
I had one of those variegated ditch lilies, and it reverted back to being just a ditch lily over time, and now I can't get rid of the darn thing, keeps coming back.
I did my stint as a Juror yesterday, so now I'm done with that. Spent all day, Found him guilty, got home late, and still had to do chores. My neighbor saw me running late, so came and helped me. Nice of him.
It's nice and cool today, it was a "shut off the AC, open the windows" kind of night. Slight chance of rain, though not likely.
