Daylilies of summer and some pics for Jean

celeste(zone 4 NH)September 24, 2012

Here are some more pictures from this past summer and some of ZEUS that I promised Jean I'd post.

I only have a couple still blooming...just rebloom on Bridgeton Elegance and the last of the lates, Pumpkin Time, Final Frontier and Bridgeton Ivy League. It is going to be July before I see daylilies again...boohoo.


ZEUS enjoys catnip so much he eats it then rolls in it...LOL

Look at the smile on his face!

He looks stoned here...haha




LIGHTS OF DETROIT (very flat-faced flowers)

What a lovely group of flowers! I'm going to choose CAROLINA SUNRISE as my favorite - love those warm colors. Zeus looks very pleased with himself - such a happy kitty.

Never disappointed with your posts--they are all beautiful and I love looking at them. Naturally, Destined To See is a favorite, and I do like Carolina Sunrise, don't recall seeing that one but my memory is not the greatest. Fab color on Marietta Warrior and Sir Mordred does look close to black. Of course, the star of the show is Zeus, he is totally lovely. Be careful, you might have to put him in rehab after overdosing on catnip LOL. Avedon

I like Red Eyed Fantasy. I tried to grow it once, but I had only gotten one fan and it didn't make it. I really have to try it again some time, but remember to order it in the spring, not late.

THANK YOU for the positive comments everyone.
Zeus recuperated from his catnip 'high' and is snoozing on my lap as I type.
I forgot to mention that the bud count on Destined to See was incredible this year and Julia noticed that. If you look closely at the photo you will see that 2 of the blooms are polys. I had an unusually high number of polys this year.
Thanks again for taking the time to look & comment.

So nice to see daylilies when they've pretty much stopped in the garden. All of yours look good, but DESTINED TO SEE and EMMA'S GREEN GIANT are my favorites.

Zeus is such a cutie and he really seems to know it. Daylilies are gorgeous. A fond memory of summer around here as they are long done blooming.
