Garden Tuesday – Daylilies

daylilies

I don’t know about you, but my garden is looking pretty ragged right now.  We haven’t had rain in weeks, and even though I run the sprinkler every other day, it just can’t compete with the 90+ degree days that we were having.

So, I bring you some daylilies from June.  June, when things were blooming and it actually dripped water from the sky every now and then.

It was such an innocent time.  A promise of daily beauty.  Shattered by relentless heat and rain clouds that seemed to divide on purpose right around us.

Beautiful lilies! Our days are a bit cooler now and we actually had a little rain yesterday, but it it's too late. Everything is a bit sad looking.

We just had our first rain in weeks yesterday so maybe you'll be graced with some good weather soon! Oh but the lilies are gorgeous!

they are really beautiful! We are having beautiful weather here, bu that always includes rain for me.. We are just getting enough rain rignt now for every thing to start turning green again instead of the summer brown thing that our lawns do.. Absolute shocks new comers when they see us let our lawns go dormant, for like, the 6 weeks with minimal rain...

Pam, what a lovely selection of hybrid daylilies. They grow well here too. Our garden looks pretty well shot now. Very sad for me since I love summer.

Hi Pam, We just had a doozy of a storm yesterday, here in the midwest! We're supposed to get more rain this afternoon. Maybe the water is heading your way. Flowers that beautiful should have glorious rain! ;-)

So beautiful. I'm sure your garden is wonderful any time of year. Just ask your kitties!
I am back in the land of coastal fog, and I'm LOVING it! For now, anyway.

If I send my 50 to 60 degree days toward you, can we share and both enjoy sunny and 75?

Those are stunning!

Ragged and scrappy is how I usually look after a long hot summer. I have a great deal of empathy with your garden. How fortunate that June's daylillies were so attractive.

Those are gorgeous! I need to find out if they grow in FL.
