    1. Me too, Elaine! The photo doesn't do 'Thin Man' justice either. I'll may post another more flattering pic in the near future. Thanks for stopping by. :-)

  2. . . . and how eloquently they speak. You grow beautiful languages, Beth.

    Another vote for Thin Man. He speaks to be because he reminds me of a favored Bob Dylan song, "Ballad of a Thin Man." Fortunately, *your* thin man is a hero, not an object of ridicule.

    1. Oh, thank you Lee. What a nice compliment! :-) 'Thin Man' is my favorite too! I am partial to the red ones (this year). I finally "acquired" 'Thin Man' last summer, so he'll probably be much taller in the future. This hero does shine like a beacon in the garden. :-)

  3. The inherited nameless one is for me. The colours are so unusual. It has a pansy-like appearance, which is so cute.

    1. I do like this one too, Annabelle. It has a beautiful plant form as well as a beautiful bloom. This one ended up in one of my side beds, "The North Garden" lol. This daylily is so pretty, I have decided to move it to the main daylily bed in the fall. I think of a pansy when I look at it too. It's been named 'Pansy-Like' until further notice. :-) xx

  4. Mine have not bloomed yet, so it is nice to come here and see your lovely blooms. Thin Man has to be my favorite from what you have shown here. I like that stance as if the chest is thrown out to display all of that incredible beauty.

    1. Thank you. I'm glad you stopped by. 'Thin Man' is my favorite of the group too. The photo doesn't do this one justice either, so I'll post a more flattering photo in the near future. I waited a long time to get this one, and 'Thin Man' was definitely worth the wait.
      Happy Gardening! :-)
