Our Daylilies---Part II


Wow---welcome to JULY... Time is flying by these days it seems!!! Our yard has been gorgeous with color these past few months. So far this year, we have had 16 different varieties of Daylilies ---each with many, many blooms. They have been so pretty!!!!! I hate it when they are all gone! We do have a few reblooming Daylilies ---so maybe I'll see some more in the Fall.


Today I'll share with you six more of our Daylilies. If you want to see any of the others I have published, go to my sidebar, scroll down to LABELS and click on DAYLILIES 2010. Above is one that you will want to eat... Its name is STRAWBERRY CANDY.... Want a bite????? Below are more!





CAROLYN CRISWELL




HUSH LITTLE BABY




DARING DECEPTION




EYE-YI-YI




ROSIE MEYER


As I mentioned above, we have been lucky with our flowers this year so far... Most everything has bloomed and been very pretty --despite the fact that we have had horribly hot temperatures and dry conditions in June. I hope you enjoyed seeing more of our Daylilies today.

+++++++++++++++++++++
Since many of you have asked about my doctor's appointment, I'd better give a short update.. (Then I'll quit talking about it --at least for a day or two!!!! ha).. Knee Replacement surgery won't have to happen --at least for quite sometime. Beginning in two weeks, I will have a Synvisc injection in the knee --which should help. I will have this injection every six months as needed. In the meantime, I am trying two new types of medications (one for Arthritis and one for pain)... Let's just hope that neither of these cause me to have stomach problems --like the last medications did. I like my doctor and think that she is on the right track when it comes to me and my crazy knee!

Have a wonderful Thursday! Thanks so much for your kind words and prayers for me these past couple of months as I manage to get back to 'normal' --whatever that is!!!

Hugs,

I never knew there were so many different coloured day lilies. I will have to look around the nurseries for some as the common yellow one grows quite well in our hot climate. Hope the injections work well.

Jane said...

Good Morning Betsy,
Thank you for the update on your knee and I continue to pray for you.
I love the daylily photos you have shared today. It would be hard to choose a favorite. Each one is so unique and colorful!
I hope you will have a quiet, restful day today. Take care.

I know it's too late for this year, but as a daylily fan have you ever come over to the Oakes Daylily Festival - I think it was this past weekend. If not it might make a nice little day trip for you next year. Here are a couple of sites to check out.

Good Morning, Betsy! I hope you get some real relief with these injections! Love the Daylilies, especially the ones with ruffled eddges!

Betsy: It looks like we are going the same direction with the knee. I will do injections next but went to PT for the last 6 weeks. I love the beauty you captured in the day lilies.

linda m said...

Glad to hear that knee surgery is not in the picture for now. Hope this treatment works out well for you. Will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

Beth said...

Gorgeous daylilies, Betsy---the different colors are magnificent. Tom and I were out the other day and passed a place where they had 2 or 3 acres of daylilies---what a sight! I guess it was probably someone who sells them.

I've been keeping you and your knee in my prayers. Glad to hear it's better---I do hope the medicines help and don't cause nasty side effects.

Karin said...

Love those day lilies! And the variety! The frilly Hugh Little Baby is very special! Beautiful photos again Betsy!

Take good care of you - your bum, knee, tummy and all the rest!!! Hugs my friend and loving thoughts - and prayers sent to the Lord!

Susie said...

Girl who comes up with the names for these beauties?!?!?

Glad you don't have to have surgery anytime soon. Hopefully you will be out finding new waterfalls soon.

Arkansas Patti said...

Had no idea there were so many varieties of lilies. What a sheltered life I've led.
Great news about the knee. Hope the oiling of the joint works and your are checking out your beloved waterfalls soon.

Darla said...

beautiful display of daylilies...you, normal? lol

Barbara said...

Oh these Day Lilies are so beautiful, you got such clear and wonderful photos of them Betsy, love them all, the peach are perfect, hugs and blessings, Barbara

JKoenig said...

Your lillies just get prettier and prettier.

Glad to hear knee surgery is not on the near horizon. Hope the new meds work well, and I'll keep praying that you were be back to doing the things you love to do very, very soon.

NCmountainwoman said...

We drove along Interstate 40 the other day and there were beautiful daylillies under the overpasses along the way. What a wonderful spunky flower. Yours are gorgeous.

Busy Bee Suz said...

Your lillies are so beautiful and bright!
Glad to know you are moving forward with your knee issues and will have some good progress soon!!!
Yay for good Dr's!!!

Denise said...

Hi Betsy, your garden must be ablaze with color. Absolutely gorgeous photos! Glad to hear no knee surgery for you. Been thinking about you every time I get up and my knees start to click - lol.

Hi Betsy. Rosie Meyer sure is pretty, love that color. I have Daring Deception but it hasn't bloomed yet.

So glad you don't need knee surgery! I do hope this treatment works well. You know, one feeds dogs alfalfa for arthritis ... I'm sure it works for humans too. One can get some at the health food store (for humans). I put some in Mingus' food everyday because it is good for skin too etc ... just as a preventative.

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

Gorgeous blossoms! Each flower is vivid and just beautiful.
I hope the new treatment will give good results.I am praying that you will soon be back to walking,pain free.I am still bothered by a toe that does not allow much walking and I don't like this at all.
BLessings,Ruth

Glad to hear you aren't heading in for surgery! Sounds like you are on the right track!!

wildlifewatcher said...

Glad you are on the mend. Outstanding that you and your husband fly the flag! My favorite of your Lilly collection so far is that "Rosie Meyer".

Sandra said...

Hope you are having a good time OFF. good news on the no replacement in near future. I like the photos but for some reason I LOVE the names. the names they pick fascinate me.

Jeanne said...

Your lillies are beautiful - such a variety!
Glad to hear you can avoid surgery at this time.
Have a nice Fourth!
Jeanne

Cheryl said...

Wow, wow and more wow!! The lilies are just stunning. Your lawn must be bursting with color! I am glad your knee is coming along, I think once you have the injection you will see a big difference. But don't do as I did after mine, I went right out on a hike....not a smart idea. Do what the doctor says! I just felt so much better afterwards that I couldn't control the impulse to get outside. I hope you and George have a most wonderful Fourth of July.

Marci said...

Betsy ~ Beautiful photos, as always! Love your header as well!
How are you feeling? Have a great day :)

Carletta said...

Betsy you and George have so many beautiful lilies I don't see how you keep track of them. :)
I do hope the Synvisc injections work for you. My arthritis medicine has a coating to prevent stomach upset so I hope you've been prescribed one of those.
Love the new header - very appropriate for the coming holiday!

A Brit in Tennessee said...

Stunning beauty...
I like them all !
Especially love the ones with curly edges, they look so feminine.
Hmmm, I was curious about the injection, if it helps let me know, I may ask my physician to give it a try in my bad knee.
Good news, no replacement.
Hugs,
Jo

From the Kitchen said...

I've very happy that you didn't ask us to vote on our favorite lily. First I thought Strawberry Candy, then I found Daring Deception, then it was eye-yi-yi. There's no way to choose. I want them all!

Hope the shots and medication do the trick for your knee!!

Best,
Bonnie

sEy said...

I am glad that you're doing great and a knee surgery won't be needed.

Your daylilies are great and maybe they're used to hot temperatures. I love the Strawberry Candy the most.

I am happy that you're doing fine!

Cheers,
Sey

Chris said...

How lovely to see your daylilies Betsy, they are wonderful. I hope the injections work on your poor knee. I know how bad the pain in joints can be and was so relieved when I had my hip replaced. I hope you will soon be back to hiking again.

Linda (PA_shutterbug) said...

Your daylilies are lovely. I didn't know there were so many different colors either. I hope that the injections help.

Leedra said...

Of all these I only have EYE-YI-YI. You know me, they are all gorgeous. Never saw a daylily I didn't like, I mean love.

Daisy said...

Your daylilies are all wonderful, Betsy! They are really blooming for you this year. I hope your Dr. can figure out the right things to do to take the pain from your knee. Happy 4th of July weekend to you.

Adrienne in Ohio said...

Your flowers are gorgeous! Praying your knee continues to heal, and that the new medications are easy on your stomach.
Hope you have a happy 4th of July!

Rose said...

You sound happy with your results--I bet you are relieved that surgery isn't required right away! I would be, too.

And I really hope the meds are not so troublesome this time around...I hate that queasiness that some meds give.

Again, the lilies are totally gorgeous.

The Retired One said...

I love them all! How on earth do you remember all of their names??
So glad you have good news on your knee plan...hope the pain lessens soon and that you can get out and about more.

Pam said...

They are all so gorgeous, most of them I have never seen before. The colors just pop like 4th of July firecrackers.

Be well, Betsy ;)

Glenda said...

Hush Little Baby with its ruffles and stunning color gets my vote this time! But as always, all of them are so, so pretty.

I'm glad surgery is not in your near-future and hope and pray that your new meds help.

Love your new patriotic look!!

SOUNDS LIKE A GOOD PLAN FOR YOUR KNEE. YOU HAVE SOME OF THE MOST PRETTIEST DAY LILIES I'VE EVER SEEN. THINGS JUST AREN'T BLOOMING OVER HERE IT IS JUST TO DRY. BLESSINGS TO YOU MARILYN

SquirrelQueen said...

I love all of your beautiful daylilies but Strawberry Candy is my favorite, I haven't seen that one before.

I'm glad to hear that there is no surgery on the horizon for you. Hopefully the new medications will be good for your knee and easy on your tummy.

Normal? What's that?

Hugs,
Judy

wildcatwoodscats said...

We have many of these lilies in our yard and then some..but didn't know their names! Thanks and hope the injections work for your knee. Happy 4th!

Mary said...

I'm glad that you are happy with how your doctor is treating your knee...that is always a plus with any treatment to feel confidence in what they are doing for you. Your daylilies are so pretty and I am always amazed at the different varieties you have! Will go back and catch up on the first installment of these, too.

Arti said...
