I know this blog has been terribly neglected lately. It's a wonder it isn't just totally grown over with weeds! I've turned into a traveling gypsy, and have been to Illinois, Nevada, California and Virginia since March, so life has been a bit of a whirlwind. Hmmmm, maybe I should temporarily rename the blog to Daylily Whirlwind. Sometimes, I just click my heels together and repeat "There's no place like home." Anyway, I'm home for a while and what a time to be here! Showtime has begun for the dayliles, and it's been lots of fun so far. I'm trying to stick to my resolve to quit moving them around just for the sake of "rearranging," and that's turning out to be a good thing (I did move a few to sunnier spots though). It's amazing how much taller they are once they've been left alone to settle in for a couple of years. Here are a few blooms of late I'd like to share with you:
This one resides near the back of the main daylily garden (referred to as The Daylily Soup Garden around here).
It shines like a beacon back there!
|'All American Chief''|
Super tall, re-blooming, large spider that seems to glow.
I never can quite catch the elusive beauty of this one in a photo.
|'Texas Big Bend'|
This has been one of my favorites for the past two years with its beautiful color, substance and ruffled edges.
This bloom is huge and some have compared it to a fancy squash bloom.
What a fancy squash bloom!
This tall bearded iris is a keeper. I bought it after reading reviews that it will bloom in hot climates when others don't.
Well, I have not been disappointed, so if you're looking for a rugged, heat tolerant bearded iris, this is the one for you!
'Rip City' has bloomed consistently since landing in my garden even when it wasn't particularly babied.
We all know which flowers get babied in this garden, don't we? ;-)
This is 'Firefly Frenzy's first year anniversary in the garden, and look at all of the buds!
It doesn't quite look like it did when I bought it but it's still settling in.
|Crazy Garden Getup|
Sometimes, one just has to get out to the garden with coffee in hand right away!
Hence, more crazy garden getups!
Yes, that is a gown with the gardening bogs! LOL
What's your favorite bloom of this group? I'd love to hear.
So glad you stopped by!
All the best! :-)
