New daylilies and garden stuff

Cindy zone 6aSeptember 9, 2012

I did make it to Curt Hanson's this past July and was able to bring back several wonderful new daylilies. I was on a mission to get Wayne's World and was successful!!Here is Waynes' World in his garden.

I also impulsed bought Shadow Cabinet and First Officer's Log. They were gorgeous. ( sorry, no pics of those ) I wanted a nice yellow, and added Slice of Life and then as a bonus I got Fun in Acapulco.!!

Here are my daylilies waiting to go home! Check out the clump at the left!! 14 fans of First Officer's Log!!

Here is Curt digging in the gardens.

After the Convention, I ordered from Ashwood Gardens, and received Pigment of Imagination, Underneath the Ice, and Ashwood Inferno was sent as a bonus!!!

I also had received my daylily labels, and am almost done!

It was so much fun setting out the new labels!

I 'created' a new bottle tree!! The colored bottles are solar, and I had intended to put them on the bottle tree, but the battery compartment is on the bottom and I thought they would last longer if I hung them from a tree. They are really cool, and last a long time with a colorful glow. The solar panel is in the bottle, so it can't be seen. I added a few wine bottles too!! Good use of a nice wine bottle.

Chicago Apache was a nice late bloomer.

Oh, and just for Jean, a pic of Bowie, enjoying the garden bench!! Thanks for looking! Cindy

The daylilies, the bottle tree and the labels are all nice but nothing compares to Bowie. That is just the sweetest-looking face, so blissful and content lying on the bench without a worry in the world. Adorable!

Bowie sure looks comfortable, you sure are going to be busy with planting and setting out all of your new markers.
What a neat idea for your bottles I love it.

Lovely blooms. Looks like you got another great selection of dls. Love the pic of Bowie. So sweet.
What made you change your tags to engraved ones? They look really nice.
I've not seen the lighted solar bottles but what an unusual item.

Super nice fans! Love Chicago Apache. I had to leave it behind when we moved.

Where did you get the labels? Solar bottles?
