A few more newbies from the garden

I am up to my elbows in tomatoes this morning. No, I don’t have photos of that. Maybe another time. What I have are some photos of daylilies. I know, shocking, right? These are all new to me in the last year and with the exceptional weather we had for flowers this summer, they are really something to see.

This is “Open Hearth“, 1976, Lambert. It is considered an Unusual Form – the petals and sepals aren’t quite narrow enough to be a spider – they are described as being “spatulate” He has been a wonderful performer in this first year of bloom.If you hang around here much at all, you are aware that I am most drawn to flowers in shades of yellow, red and orange. I know a lot of people are going to love this one though, which was given to me by a friend. You don’t turn down free plants! It is “Edge of Paradise“, 1998, Stamile. Doesn’t really fit the color scheme where it is planted right now, but very lovely.Finally, “Mauna Loa“, 1976, Roberts. Definitely a favorite of mine – tons of blooms and they stay nice all day.

Back to the tomatoes for me – what are you doing today?

    Edge of Paradise is gorgeous! I think that’s my favorite so far.

    I’m going back to bed in a minute so I can work tonight without passing out. :)

    Nice flowers. I love them all.

    Mowing this afternoon. I think that is all I ever do anymore.

    I love those daylilies. And that Edge of Paradise is spectacular. I am going to look for those.

    All three of these are nice. I don’t have favorite colrs when it comes to flowers. :-)

    I love your daylillies.

    I cleaned this morning. Saturday is always cleaning day. And then we went shopping in Amish country. Got some pics. Hopefully they won’t suck.

    We have no garden, hence no tomatoes. You know what? I kinda don’t miss it just this one year. I think I’ll live vicariously through you.

    Flea and Mental P – see? I knew a lot of people would really like that one! :)

    Ruth – I am always drawn to certain colors more than others – green is at the top, but of course there is never a shortage of green in the garden – then come the yellows, reds and oranges. I can’t resist a yellow daylily to save my life!

    Kate – we have gone a few summers with no garden and it has always made us determined to have one the next year. I can live with it for one year if circumstances dictate, but i can’t imagine never having one at all. And I can’t wait to see the photos, which seem to me to have a very low chance of sucking!

    Ellyn – did you get it finished? If so then, it is probably time to start at the beginning again. It is the summer that was taken over by the lawn!

    These are beautiful. I wish you were my neighbor so that I could take some of the leftover off your hands!

    OMG so beautiful, I love the orange color.
