Oh Those Gorgeous Daylilies

Orange Vols Daylily
This has been our very best year for DAYLILIES....  We have 30 different varieties in our yard --and many of them are re-bloomers...  (We won't buy any anymore which are not re-bloomers.)

For those of you who don't know,  Daylilies only bloom for ONE DAY (hence the name)---but if you are lucky,  you'll get lots and lots of blooms from each plant.  AND--if they re-bloom,  you'll get many more...

I will have at least 3 posts featuring our Daylilies ----and many more featuring our Lilies.  This may take me most of the summer---off and on... AND--I also haven't done too many Rose posts, so that will come also... We are just so blessed to have so many beautiful flowers in our yard.

As of now,  most of the Lilies are gone --and more than half of the Daylilies (until they rebloom)...   BUT--our beautiful Roses will keep blooming until late Fall...

Today I'll share just some of our Daylilies.... Hope you enjoy them.  Be sure to enlarge them for better photos.  Above is a new one in the yard this year ---and you'll know by its name why I love it so much.  Its name is ORANGE VOLS.   Below are more!!!!

Carolyn Criswell Daylily

South Sea Daylily

Bama Bound Daylily

Custard Candy Daylily

Prairie Blue Eyes Daylily (even though it is definitely not BLUE)

Daring Deception Daylily

Wild Horses Daylily
Hope you enjoyed seeing just a few of our Daylilies...  IF you don't have them in your yard,  you should.  They will bloom --whether it is hot, wet, dry or whatever...  Very hearty---and OH--so beautiful!!!!

The only problem we have had this year are the DEER.... They seem to love the Daylilies ---even though we use both Deer Scram and Liquid Fence.  I'm sure the deer are desperate --since we have been SO hot and SO dry here... They are nibbling --but so far,  haven't done too much damage.

BUT--the good news today is that we did receive some rain yesterday --and it was cooler... Praise Be to God...  We need more rain --but I'm happy for what we do get.

Hope you have a good day.
