They are about a month late, but at last the lilies have started to bloom.

The top photo is a true lily that I have had for many years.  It has survived red bug and caterpillar infestations so it's a real keeper.

I'm not sure where the yellow day lily came from.  I found it in a pot a year ago and stuck it in the ground.  It was just a couple of pathetic leaves so I did not have much hope for it.  It appears to be coming along nicely.  I knew it was yellow, but did not remember that it was double.  Surprise!

This is actually a darker red.  I bought it from Larry the Pond Guy when he was closing his business.  We still miss him.  He was a fount of knowledge on ponds and water plants.  I have yet to find someone in the area who is as knowledgable.

Summer has finally arrived.  We went from early spring temps to summer in the space of two days.  Guess I will open the pool after all.

Toes crossed that all enjoyed a Happy Independence Day!

As always, thanks for stopping by......*s*


  1. Lovely (late) lilies! Thanks for sharing their beauty with us!

  2. wow, that dark red daylily is wonderful, our lilies are leaning over due to lack of sun and need to be transplanted

    1. Hi Linda....The red is darker than in the picture. I took it in full sun which always washes colors out.

  3. Everything is so late this year! My daylilies are still a week away or more.

  4. Hi Lori.....They will bloom, eventually. I just hope that his means we will have a long warm fall.

  5. Dearest Suzi,
    Well, this month has been rather crazy so far.
    But we're looking forward to a weekend biking at Hilton Head Island, SC and swimming at the hotel pool...
    LOVE your double day lily and you got quite a collection.
