Broken scapes again (& some pics)
I went to the backyard yesterday night to hunt for scapes and found two daylilies with broken scapes, again! :( It happened last year, at exactly the same place, except in the neighboring bed. Scape is broken, all buds are gone, no sign of buds. And I had one daylily in the cage, so squirrels don't dig the new dirt. Cage was tipped over, thankfully didn't break any buds.
Who the heck is doing this?? Squirrels I suppose. Last year I thought it was bunnies. It's not deer for sure. Not our cats either.
Anyway, one was not so dear to me, and there are three more scapes left, but.. what was really disappointing is that they broke all buds but one on my new Gilded by Grace :'( Why?? Why not Stellas or something?
And then.. we had a tree cut down today. The guys tried to do their best, but daylilies were right in the way. Lost several buds and couple scapes on 5 or 6 of them. Trashed all that were kinda under that tree, but they were not so important.
And when they were almost done, they cut one huge log and it landed right on my Linda's Magic, and then it rolled from impact and got into one more right next to it.
Well, enough of complaining, it could have been much worse, and we should've done it earlier in the year, but we just got a chance. Of course, I am very sorry about that big tree that we practically killed..
Pictures - another 2 flowers on the early noid today, taken with the morning sun and from the shade, what a color difference :) It's somewhere in-between
And barely double FFO on Siloam Double Classic
Here's the crushed Linda's Magic and Weird Noid to the left of it. Half of Noid is all right, but it lost all the buds. I don't know if anything left of Linda's Magic
On the bright side, unless I didn't notice something, that's about it, all other daylilies are alright!
Thanks for looking!
