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?
