Imagine you were a flying insect ready to chomp on a flower for lunch.. a whole bunch of hurt is coming your way..

Crab Spider (like all predators, they eat both friendly and unfriendly bugs... ) sitting on some casa blanca lilies..

One of the leslee renee x ss kids. this one is very blush with almost no edgeing.

another of the KWOXBirdTalk kids.

Im always get a kick out of daylily genetics, in this case causin crosses with PC in its background..

Thunderous showers yesterday, but the ol' chang dynasty x ccc always opens wells, I have like 10 pods on this already.

I was down to twenty blooms this morning on daylilies, with only a few dozen buds left at most. every few years our season extend late allowing for some rebloom, but even if instant rebloom works in the north, I like to see vigor the best, increased clump size with many scapes, when I see those out of my seedlings they are marked for keepers to breed that trait line in to my stuff.

Mother Nature at work with the crab spider, and we all know nature can be cruel. Love all your seedlings. Avedon

Lovely daylilies. I am not a fan of spiders. I just HATE them. I do mostly leave the ones in the garden alone but really I have to keep reminding myself not to get the can of Raid!

The ones with PC (Purple Cheetah?) in the background are really looking good!

That spider is pretty scary looking! Great shot. I love the soft pink and white edge of the first seedling. ss?
