Oldies But Goodies

Guy's, I started collecting daylilies in the early 90's. The arrival of my daughter in 97 put a damper on my time and my involvement was greatly impacted but I never lost my love for the flowers.

I fell in love with the Child's lilies and have maintained many to date. Trahlyta, Ferris Wheel, Prissy Frills, Fellow, Enjoy, Top Honors, and many other.

Here's a couple from today..

Blue Reflection

Satin Bird

I like Childs, too. How many do you have in your collection? Ferris Wheel is off to a bad start here because it's on a very short scape for some reason, possibly the late freeze we had. I hadn't seen Blue Reflection before and it's very pretty.

Oh, so you now have a 15-year-old... My wonderful daughters are now 40 and 42, but I remember 15 very well. This is probably a great time for you to reconnect with your daylilies. :)

BLUE REFLECTION is lovely and soothing. I don't have any unusual forms in my small collection, but I like the crispate look.

Glad that you now have more time to devote to the garden. Those blooms today are lovely.

Other Child's here are Endearing, Big Deal, Burnished Amber and a very special pink "Summer Anthem" (one of the few Tet's).

Very pretty, gardening is therapeutic (I have 5 children ages 4 thru 22, 3 boys 2 girls) and therefore need lots of therapy at times, hence the reason for 11 gardens. lol

Albeit to say that they are well manicured would make me look
like Pinochio.
