HEre's to a floriferous daylily season next year!

crackingtheconcrete(7a)November 11, 2012


I was actually intending to post a picture of yellow pinwheel for you for some summer sunshine, but my wireless is not cooperating.

I was just talking with my mom and we both think we quite literally missed the bloom of 50% of our plants this year due to heat, insane aphids, and beetles which I have never before seen that saw my plants as the newest dream buffet.

I am excited to see what will come up next year an am hoping for triple blooming power!!

Hey, CTC, sure glad to hear from you, I am sure many of us were wondering how you were doing when Hurricane Sandy came through. Love the picture, sure brightens the day. For crazies, try this one--not a DL, but very colorful and who would figure azaleas blooming this time of year---this is not supposed to be a rebloomer. It is Red Ruffles and it looks better now than it did in the spring. Avedon

So glad you checked in. This was indeed a very hot miserable gardening year. Hey, we are at the point now of anticipating next year's blooms. IAs Avedon said, we were worried about you.

Thanks so much for thinking of me! We had flickering lights but lost no power so we were very grateful!
Love that hot pink/red azalea! I was hoping to plant autumn crocus for something blooming but just haven't gotten it together yet.

I'm so glad you are doing OK CTC! Last I heard, there were still a lot of people without power, unbelievable.
I think my daylilies had a pretty normal year, some were good & others had an off year. June was REALLY hot & definitely affected the blooms. With everything blooming early I thought I wouldn't have much late bloom. Oddly, I still had a few daylilies reblooming until Tuesday when we had a really hard freeze. Temps got down to low/mid 20s in some areas. We had some rather hard frosts before, but the daylilies made it through. I really didn't know they could handle frost like that.

OMG YES! May everything go crazy to make up for lost time! I have so many seedlings that should have bloomed last year, which means I couldn't get rid of the yucky ones, which means I have a ton of seeds that I either have to make new beds for or go crazy in 2013 being the executioner (sp?) to a bunch of unsuspecting seedlings. Yikes!
