Our 2010 Daylilies--Part III

This year we had 16 different varieties of Daylilies in our yard... Unfortunately, most of them are gone now (sniff sniff), but we certainly did enjoy them this year. There are two other parts to this post. If you want to see our other Daylilies, go to my sidebar. Scroll down to Labels and click on Daylilies 2010. Today I will share with you the remainder of this year's Daylilies. Above is a variety --which bloomed next to our garage door (and are still blooming). Below are more individual ones.





DAD ADAMS DAYLILY (These were our first Daylilies, and we have a huge batch of them. Unfortunately, a deer got some of them this year!!)

Even though we have had a very hot and dry summer, our Daylilies and Lilies, along with our Roses, have been beautiful. Hope you have enjoyed seeing our Daylilies.

For those interested, I had a doctor's appointment yesterday. My knee is doing extremely well right now, so I opted not to have the injection until it is needed. However, I have a few other problems that I'm working on (my low energy level, numbness in one leg, and my lack of being able to sleep). Hopefully, by the time I go back for my next appointment (in SIX weeks), I will have these other problems worked out. At least, I hope so!!!! In the meantime, I'll stay at home and continue getting well. Thanks for your thoughts and prayers!

Blog Tip #4: This one is hard for me since I love to write and am VERY wordy!!!! Don't use too many words... Some people do a great job of this --and even spread their words out on the page, in a easy way to read. I will continue to work on this--but it's not easy for me. NOTE: Some of my favorite blogs are Storytelling Blogs... I love stories, and yes, they are wordy.. BUT--that's what they are meant to be!!!! My only thought would be to not make the stories too long.

Have a wonderful Wednesday.

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!






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!!!

Daylilies in our Yard Now

Our yard is ablaze with color these days (Roses, Lilies, Daylilies, etc.). Even with the extreme heat which we are having, the flowers are doing really well... Today, I will share some of our beautiful Daylilies. The picture above is a variety which are blooming next to our garage. Aren't they pretty? Below are some more individual ones.

As much as I do NOT like the Alabama Crimson Tide Football Team (since I'm a big Tennessee Vol fan)----I will admit that I do love the 'crimson' color of this Daylily. Its name appropriately is BAMA BOUND.



FRED HAM (Don't you just love the texture in this Daylily?)

Finally, this beauty (don't you love the color) is named PRAIRIE BLUE EYES.

Hope you are enjoying the beauty around you too, wherever you are... It's still extremely HOT here --and it looks like this heat wave will continue all week.... Thank God for our Air Conditioned home!!!!

June, Around Our Yard

As I said in a previous blog post, June has been a hot month for us so far this Summer. But--even still, we have had some beautiful color in the yard (besides our gorgeous Roses). So--today, I will show you a few shots around the yard. Above is our blooming CLEMATIS. It is doing what it is supposed to do-------climbing up that ole' telephone pole in our yard. It also loves to connect with the Redbud tree... Below are more pictures.

Here's one of the CLEMATIS blooms, up close and personal.

Here's some of our pretty SEMPERVIVUM (Hens and Chicks) in our yard.

Here's another picture of some of our beautiful SEMPS. We have them in all shapes and colors.

This is one of our first groups of DAYLILIES in our yard when we first moved here. These DAYLILIES were given to us by George's Dad ---so we call them the DAD ADAMS DAYLILIES.

This is our side yard flowerbed. We have LOTS of LILIES and DAYLILIES in this bed --and they are blooming like crazy right now... Wish you could smell them!!!!!

I cannot thank you enough for all of your emails and comments helping me deal with the problems I have been having with my left knee. I received good news and bad news from the doctor yesterday. The good news is that my knee is healing well from the surgery, and is looking much better. The bad news is that I have some severe arthritis in that knee which is causing all kinds of other problems. SO--the saga of my left knee isn't over yet.... Eventually I will get back to normal (I hope).
