Sophie asked if my daylilies were still blooming. Most of them are blooming now. The very first ones and the ones in the most shade are not but I have a fair amount of them blooming. The following is the daylily parade with the names below the picture of the ones I know or think I know the name.
This peachy one and the one below might be part of the Chicago series.
This is a small one. Nameless at this time.
This is is supposed to be fragrant. I can't remember what it smells like since my smeller doesn't work so good any more.

Now don't go and get all apoplectic on me since I don't know the names for all my daylilies. I have had most of them since the late 90's. My newest ones are Golden Hibiscus and the Wilson's Spider and I believe they are a 2004 vintage. When I see all the beautiful colors and ruffly petals of the newer varities it makes me want to purchase more. I am trying to not have so much of that strappy foliage in the garden, however if I run into a purple variety someplace I will probably succumb.
My tall lilies are about gone. I have a few with buds. We need rain to make them pop open. Maybe this weekend.
Speaking of the weekend, I hope you all have a wonderful 4th of July Weekend. Enjoy and be safe.
