At their best today - and all budded up

njmomma(z6 NJ)July 7, 2012

I think my back garden was at its' peak today.

DOMINIC was at its' best even after a full super hot day. These were taken at 7:30pm tonight.



and ELEGANT CANDY - a great daylily as you can tell by all the buds just waiting to pop.

I like Alabama Jubilee against the fence background. And Dominic is imposing in the garden.

Your daylilies sure held up well in the heat. It's especially impressive to see a dark one like Dominic show no sign of melting.That picture is my favorite.

It certainly looks like you're at peak bloom. The budding on Elegant Candy is amazing.

Great photos - especially for the evening! Dominic was always a good heat buster here. It's in one of my beds that the hose won't reach, so it didn't get water and had very few buds this year. My Buttered Popcorn suffers a lot more heat damage by evening. Elegant Candy is impressive with all those buds!

Just too pretty! I really like the companion blooms with the daylilies in your beautiful first picture. Alabama Jubilee is a favorite of mine, and it is so very pretty. From all of the buds, you should be surrounded by beauty for a while.

Beautiful. I love ALABAMA JUBILEE and that first grouping picture is a stunner. Your daylilies certainly did hold up well.
