2011 Daylilies in our Yard--Part I

As I told you in my Lily post recently,  we missed alot of our blooming Lilies and Day Lilies this year due to our 3 week trip.  However,  we did/do have 14 different varieties blooming --so today,  I will share with you 7 of them.  Above is BAMA BOUND  (for all of your Alabama fans).  Below are more.




CUSTARD CANDY






BRIGHT SUNSET






ELEGANT CANDY






FOOLED ME  (a new Day Lily in our yard this year)






JANICE BROWN






ROSIE MEYER

What is your favorite one????   I love them all--but my favorite out of this group is Janice Brown...

Have a great day.
Hugs,

Twilight Man said...

I love the Bright Sunset as one look, it made me smile for its rich orange's warmth. Overall, they are all lovely and pretty in their shapes and color tones. Your home has so much happiness with blooming flowers and pecking birds!

Ms. A said...

Bama Bound! It looks like it has its own internal light source.

Pam said...

They are all gorgeous, Betsy.. I too love them all and my fav is Janice Brown with Elegant Candy a close second.

Have a wonderful day.
hugs,
Pam

Good Morning! I'm BAAACK!!!!

Sorry I've been so absent but gosh, it's been a busy couple of weeks but things are settling down-

I love day lilies and all the beautiful varieties; I only wish they stayed longer. I have realized that if you cut them back after they bloom, you can get another bloom out of them before season's end though.

My favorite is Janice Brown as well, then the Custard Candy; just he neame conjurs up lovely thoughts, doesn't it?
Missed you my friend; hugs to you!

They are all beautiful but I like the Bama Bound best.I'm off to catch up on your 3 week road trip.

Mr. Bill said...

A beautiful display of colors....hard to choose the best!!

Arkansas Patti said...

They are all beautiful but since I am crazy about sunsets, Bright Sunset really caught my eye.
I really need to get more variety like you have.

Beth said...

They're all lovely, Betsy, but I think I like the rich color of Bama Bound the best.

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

I like them all,but if I must pick a favorite it is Bama Bound.I love that intense color.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Oh how pretty! I like elegant candy the best I think.

texwisgirl said...

i like custard candy - but maybe it's mostly the name... :)

Beth said...

I agree with you: Janice Brown.
I have 4 new types this year and will have to do a post on them.
I splurged and ordered some through the mail last year and simply love them.
I'm glad you have gotten to see some of yours bloom although that trip sounds certainly worth missing some.

Sandra said...

fooled me is my favorite, but it is hard to choose, they are all stunning.

nanny said...

They are all beautiful....but I think Fooled Me and Janice Brown tie for first...ha

Snap said...

I only have one day lily and really must add more. These are lovely. Thanks, Betsy

Karin said...

I sure wish they were month-lilies instead of day-lilies! I love the uniqueness of each one, but Bama Bound kind of took my fancy on this round of beautiful photos! Have an awesome day!

My neighbor keeps me posted what I miss when gone. She drives ove every other day or so to check out the blooms. I still have a quite a few blooming

CottonLady said...

Hard choice,but Janice Brown is my favorite, too.
I got a new one this year also, "Fairy Tale Pink". I love it. So far, I only have two daylilies, but want more!
Yours are all so pretty, Betsy.

Blessings!
CottonLady

Dar said...

I think you just identified my lily, the Rosie Meyer. I love the BAMA BOUND...wow!
as for Bill, he had a great report!
Thanks for your thoughts and prayers. BlessYourHeart

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Betsy, I like the orange-red tone of that Rosie Meyer. Have a super nice day!

Fred Alton said...

Betsy, you all grow the prettiest beds of flowers. Love them all. I love the dark rich color of the BAMA lily. (As long as that is not a variety of O'Bama) Hahahahahah!

Happyone : ) said...

Quite a variety of day lilies and each one is so pretty!!

Dorothy said...

Glorious Day Lilies but that first one is my favorite!

Rose said...

It would be hard to pick a favorite...I really love them all. I have got to get more of these...there is a place just up the highway that sells lots of them.

Tricia ♥Charming Barn Hunter♥ said...

oh boy, I'd be hard pressed to choose a fave, the Janice Brown is definitely beautiful, they all are, but I'm partial to the Fooled Me Day Lily... =)

Stay cool... it doesn't look like you guys are in the Excessive Heat Warning today, but be careful, anyway... it's a scorcher here today... heat index is 102 at 10:30am & the humidity is 62% YiKeS! =0

Lisa RedWillow said...

They are all so very beautiful.. I just love them all but if I had to choose I love the color of BAMA BOUND

Retired English Teacher said...

Janice Brown is my favorite. They are all beautiful. I need to add some of these to my yard.

Ginny said...

YES, Janice Brown is my favorite, too. The first one is so deep and intense, and it looks like velvet. Well, I knew you had a lot of lilies, but if you missed a lot and STILL have 14, that's a LOT!! How many alltogether?

Busy Bee Suz said...

Oh my...they are all gorgeous. I think I would have to pick Bama bound...but why must I choose???
Have a great day!

Lola said...

Ok, Janice Brown would be #1 with Custard Candy running #2. They are all so pretty.

Big Dude said...

You sure have some colorful varieties and you took great shots of them.

Daisy said...

They are all so lovely, Betsy. I think my favorite is Bama Bound. :)

Linda said...

You've given us a tough assignment in asking us to pick a favorite from these beauties. I think my favorite of the images is Bama Bound. But that's more of a favorite photo than a favorite flower. :)

Chip "Rocket Man" Allen said...

They're all beautiful but Bama Bound takes the cake!

Glenda said...

Bama Bound is my favorite! Your photos are so sharp and clear, one can almost reach out and touch the petals!

imac said...

Your hard work pays off Betsy, cause you have a great garden full of blooms.

Ann said...

all of them are beautiful but I would say either Janice Brown or Fooled me are my favorites

Diane said...

Very pretty daylilies Betsy. Mine are just beginning to bloom. Diane

Leontien said...

i love to watch lilies! have a soft spot for them because my little brother used to work at a lilie farm in Holland and he would take some home and teach me a bunch of stuff about them!

Thanks!
Leontien

SquirrelQueen said...

The crimson red of Bama Bound is gorgeous (and that's from a GA Bulldog fan). My other favorite is the last one, Rosie Meyer.

Annie said...

Ooh, I like that Custard Candy.

Pearl@serenitycove said...

Oh so pretty! I like Janice Brown too.

JDS said...

Gotta love lilies! My favorite of the ones you posted would have been Bama Bound, but as an Auburn graduate I take offense to its name...and instead my favorite is Rosie Meyer.

Anna said...

That is nice collection Betsy.
ROSIE MEYER is my favorite.
Hope all is well otherwise.
Anna :)

Janie said...

They are all pretty, Betsy, but I like Bright Sunset best.

KathyA said...

All gorgeous! I love Rosie Meyer, though!
