A Daylily Summer

“A Daylily Summer”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana

This certainly is turning out to be a daylily summer. I have added three more daylilies to the garden. Last Friday, my sister and I went out shopping, and, of course, we had to stop at a few nurseries. The heat was almost unbearable, but worth it as I found daylilies in bloom and on sale. My plan to add more blooming perennials to the garden is coming along very well as I am finding so many lovely daylilies.

Please excuse the condition of the flowers. Each plant still has several buds, but I wanted to share the pictures with you as soon as possible, so I took these photos of the flowers at the end of the day after they had been in the car. There is a little wear on the blooms, but you can still see how lovely they are.

Here is Little Wart, such a terrible name for such a lovely flower.

 

 

Next is Clara. I bought two of this variety.

 

 

Finally, there is Joylene Nichole.

 

 

All of these daylilies will go in the “pink” garden. I think that I have enough pink daylilies, and I am now ready to move onto other colors. Some of the darker colors are attractive as well as the spider type daylilies. I am really excited about daylilies now. After adding over ten daylilies to the garden in the last month, this summer is really turning out to be all about daylilies.

    Those are some beauties! I had lots of fun seeing what the new daylilies I got on sale at the end of last summer looked like this summer. I’m sad that some are finished blooming already.

    It seems like you have caught the bug. Daylilies are my passion. I love your new ones. And yes, dark ones and spiders are certainly worth a look. I hope you will have plenty of photos every time you add more to the garden.
