Blooming Friends

The peak season of my flower garden is here and I picked out the best of the best of my 2006 daylily blooms.

These have all bloomed in my garden in the past month or so. This is my awards drumroll to my garden and a thank-you for a splendid performance.

Thanks, EB! You will have your garden someday.....

LoC, I would think the Texas sun is just as hot as Florida, but someone from Florida told me they would not grow there. I plant mine so that they will get a few hours of shade. Could it be the difference in soil? Soil can always be amended, with peat to make it retain water longer...dunno.

rose- daylilies grow in almost every zone, check out ebay to see the many varieties. These are just a fraction of the colors I have. You can get plants for a tiny fraction of the price nursuries charge at the end of season sales. In my climate, I benefit, because I can plant them almost year round, whereas those from northern climes are getting ready for freezing weather.

Working, planting things in the earth, even humble weeding, is my zen place. Complete calm, complete harmony. It is a joy to sit among the honeybees and buzzing insects, to listen to the bird calls, to watch the clouds. It is my compensation for working in a building all week.

Love it! Absolutely divine! What a testament to life and its abitlity to withstand human abuse... Let us hope that all else will bloom as such.

extremely cool. how do you keep track of them all?

Whoa... these are gorgeous. The fifth one from the top resembles a larger version of a wild lily found out here in the Pacific Northwest, called a mariposa lily, or "cat ears."
Your flowers rival Georgia O'Keefe's paintings...

are those edible?

I know it takes hard work and loving care to get these results. Gorgeous. I need to spend more time in the garden myself.

celticfire, I'll be right there. Have been busy all day, but I'm back.

isabelita, i speak Spanish and I thought mariposa meant butterfly? I'd love to see them.

Fred, edible, hmmm, honestly don't know!

fallenmonk, actually, these are the lazy person's flowers. You just stick the tubers in the ground and they grow themselves. They are ridiculously easy to grow in almost all zones in the US. And they doulbe every year!

neil, forgot to answer your question, sorry. umm, nothing to keep track of, I just mix them all together in a few garden spaces ith other flowers like coreopsis and pink daisies, dianthum, seeds I collect, some in front, some in back. I take pictures every few days, and there is always something new bloming. The different varieties bloom early, mid-summer and some are re-bloomers, so they bloom several times a year.

gorgeous

Okay, I'm jealous.

Good job!

Yeah, mariposa means butterfly, but one of the little wild lily's slang names is cat ears. The petals do look like little kitty ears. Maybe it's called mariposa because it attracts buterflies...I dunno!
