Daylilies 2010 ~ Part 3

It's been quite a week here with bloom season still going strong. The days are so long now that by the time I finish deadheading and defogging the camera lens the sun is higher in the sky than I would like for it to be for shooting.

I've waited a couple of years for this one to start blooming. I planted it in the middle of my small bed because it was a favorite of mine~ at least in other people's photos.

For those of you who may be new to daylily love I'll share with you my reference for all of the stats on these daylilies.Tinker's Gardens daylily database is a treasure but be forewarned~ that many daylily photos have been known to lead to irrational lust for these addictive flowers.

  1. They are really beautiful! I just have room for one in my little garden but wish I had more. I know what you mean about the shortness of the season. I'm just the same with my roses. It's not particularly hot here in the UK but much drier than usual and I can see that my roses aren't going to last much longer :-(
