KISSES FROM HEAVEN was looking heavenly today. The edge was quite a bit darker than the first bloom.

Sammie joined Tuxie and me on our garden walk this morning. For some reason Tuxie, her mama, was hissing at her. I couldn't get a photo of Tuxie. She wouldn't stay still.

CHEROKEE STAR with triplets

EL DESPERADO with ADAMAS in the background

CATHERINE NEAL - This one's a late bloomer. It was low on buds this time. There are only a couple of blooms left.

CHARLIE - This one's registered as midseason bloomer, but it's always one of my latest to start blooming.

ANTIQUE NOUVEAU is another late bloomer

FROZEN MARGARITA is down to her last few blooms

BELA LUGOSI - I realized yesterday I hadn't yet photographed this stellar performer.

ORANGE CLOWN, another late bloomer, had its ffo today.

Sammie didn't last long on the walk. She decided to get out of the sun and take a nap.

JAZZBERRY JAM hibuscus has started blooming.

Love the pictures of Sammie, especially the one napping in the pot. Typical cute cat behaviour. Beautiful daylilies as usual and my favorite is CHEROKEE STAR.

Sammie is such a pretty cat. You have many beautiful blooms today, but Cherokee Star (sucker for red) and Kisses from Heaven are my favorites. But...Orange Clown could snak in there.

Does Sammie have a different temperament from Tuxie? I would not have guessed that Sammie was the offspring, as Tuxie in pictures seems more dynamic.

Sammie is adorable.

I love Bela Lugosi and Catherine Neal - really drawn to the dark ones this year.

Thanks for sharing!

I like the photo you did of EL DESPERADO with ADAMAS in the background.
Nice pic also of the JAZZBERRY JAM hibuscus and of course, who doesn't like to see the "kids".

Mantis - Sammie has the temperment of a wild panther, but she loves her mama. Tuxie has been cranky around all of her offspring this week. I don't know what that's about. She's very affectionate toward me.

Anna, Rita and Kay - Cherokee Star is very nice red the later part of the season. It's sunfast up to 92 or 92 degrees. Unfortunately most of the days it's bloomed here, the temps were higher than that

My favorite photo is El Desperado, but my favorite daylilies are Kisses from Heaven and especially Frozen Margarita. FM might make it onto my short list.

Your cat pics are always appreciated.

Lovely photos. I gave my ORANGE CLOWN away some years ago; your photo is almost making me regret it!

Lovely edge on KISSES FROM HEAVEN. I love the narrow-edge, no-eye look on daylilies.

RE: Poly

Poly - I don't know how you could part with Orange Clown, especially because its late. I'm always adding late bloomers to keep the season going. Kisses from Heaven has a wonderful edge and thick rubbery petals that can really take the heat.

LOVE Catherine Neal and Bela Lugosi! Do you think they would do well in Texas?

RE: Nichole

Gwnichole- Bela Lugosi holds up well in the heat. It's a semievergreen that I know other Texans grow. I'm not sure about Catherine Neal. It's a dormant. Some dormants do well in Texas, and others don't survive. Maybe Ed Travis or another Texas resident will see this and comment.
