Its been hot and dry… the daylilies do pretty well in the heat but the colors get a bit washed out. I tried to get some photos early in the morning. People ask if I have favorites. Its hard to choose, but I really like Techny Spider because of the complexity of the coloring. It’s stunning.

It’s time for the daylily parade. I used to think daylilies were just boring old orange things by the side of the road and then my friend Kim got me hooked. I now have almost 60 different ones … most named. The show starts with the Stella D’oro in mid-June and continues on into August. Ready for a parade of gorgeous?
