Chillin' with my daylilies on Thursday
Another cool morning with a sinus headache, poor flower openings, and thrip damaged blooms. And then I saw this one's first flower: purple, toothy and a perfectly flat 7+ inches. This is a seedling by Judy Davisson that may be a future intro. When she divided it for lining out last year, she sold a division on the Lily Auction. It's supposed to have lots of white teeth when temps heat back up!!!

LAST SNOWFLAKE with its 2nd bloom. It seems so weird for lates to start blooming when my daylilies are usually just beginning.
AIN'T MISBEHAVIN' - There is an up side to the cool temps. The colors are darker and richer. I've never seen this one with rose pink petals before. They're usually a dark peachy pink.
BOOK OF KELLS - I originally bought this one 7 years ago because of the starburst eye pattern. This is the first time I've ever seen it. Guess it needs cool temps to form.
DUCK'S DARK SIDE takes on a whole new look after a chilly night. Instead of a silvery white bubbly edge, it has a wider flat white border.
CERULEAN WARBLER had deeper, brighter blues today.
RUBY LIPSTICK duo - The eye is more of a raspberry red in cool temps, instead of the true red I get in the heat.
GILDED BY GRACE has more a blue purple eye and edge in cool temps. It looked red purple last week. Did I mention how much I love the roundness of this guy?
Seedling Redefined Design X Blue Eyed Bandit had a marvelous pattern in the eye zone, caused by cool nights.
