My Daylilies for 2010

I am a cottage gardener who is fairly new to gardening. Until last spring I thought daylilies were nothing more than the orange road side variety. When on of my daughter's friend's mother ask me if I liked daylilies. I said they were okay if you liked orange (which I don't). She told me that she and her mother collect them. She very kindly brought me some in fall and I bought some from her mother at her annual garden sale. I love them!!! I grabbed my cup of coffee and headed to the garden with utter excitement for weeks this summer to see each new bloom for the first time.

I usually post on the cottage garden forum but I thought I would pop over here and share my first blooms with all of you. I hope you enjoy.

Your pic of BORDER BRIDE is very beautiful with the 3 blooms opened. The soft color of FORSYTH DEBUTANE is very lovely. Must look gorgeous in a clump.

Hi Carrie
Do you live in Nova Scotia? I live on the south shore just outside of Mahone Bay. Do you belong to the Nova Scotia Daylily Society?

RE: My Daylilies for 2010

Thank you so much!!!

Hi Chrissy- Yes, I live in Nova Scotia, outside of Windsor in the Brooklyn Area. I belong to my local garden club but not the Nova Scotia Daylily Society, perhaps someday. I get all my Daylilies from Carol Harvey though, she's only ten minutes from me.
