Day Lilies Galore in our Yard, 2016---and a Blog-Aversary!

Hello Blog and Facebook Friends/Family!   I am posting TODAY for a specific reason.  I want to show you all of our many, many Day Lilies which are blooming now ---BUT I also want to tell you that  TEN YEARS AGO TODAY (June 15, 2006),  I started Blogging for the first time.  I began on a site called LightBlog (which is now gone).  In 2009,  I switched to Blogger...  The rest is history. 

Friends come and go --but I have met so many fantastic lifetime friends through both Blogging and Facebook.  SO-----what do you want to do today--to help me celebrate my BLOG-ANNIVERSARY????  Shall we go out to dinner? NAH---let's have some coffee and just sit and enjoy all of the flowers in the yard! Okay????? 

Our Day Lilies this year are really putting on a show!!!   I could share post after post after post showing you our pictures, since we have so many varieties and colors.  I think I have taken several pictures of about 47 different varieties SO FAR --with more to bloom....  Wish you were here to see our Day Lilies!!!!!!

Today --I will share pictures I took on 6/14  of just a few of our many Day Lilies... Hope you enjoy seeing them---and hopefully,  in this group,  you will find one of your favorite colors,  since we have so many different colors and varieties.  You can click on the pictures to see them larger!!!  Sit back and enjoy!

Well---I hope you enjoyed all of these pictures... As I said above,  all of my pictures were taken yesterday,  6/14/16.   These blooms are constantly changing... We are now going outside with our cameras TWICE a day instead of once.  Amazing the constant changes!!!!!!  Wish you were here....

Do you have a favorite (or favorites) from today's group?   I love them all--but Buttered Popcorn always calls my name since I love YELLOW,  and this one always stands up above the rest!!!!  I also love Condilla,  the double yellow one...  You?????

Enjoy some coffee --or a cold one---for ME today on my Blog-Aversary..... Blogging has always been one of my favorite things to participate in!!!!!  Thanks to all of YOU for sticking with me through these many years!!!!!  Check out George's great post today showing pictures from our early morning walks.  Click HERE.

Congratulations on this special anniversary. When I look back now on my time before I was blogging,I can't imagine going back there.Shoot! I would never have met you if both of us hadn't started blogging and that alone makes it worthwhile.
OK,seriously,I tried very hard to pick just one favourite lily,but had to give up.They are all my favourites.
Have a great day and keep those shutters clicking,I want to see more pictures.
Hugs,
Ruth

Happy Blog - Aversary. Sure wish I could join you on your porch and just let all the beauty from your yard melt away all my stress. Your yard should be show cased in Home and Garden Magazine.

I had chosen the yellow ones as my favourites although they all look fabulous. Congratulations on your 10th anniversary. I can't remember how I found your blog but boy was I grateful as you spent quite some time helping me solve all those problems that beginners encounter so a special thank-you from me and I look forward to the next 10 x

Beatriz said...

Hi Betsy!
Your yard looks like something from another world, so wonderful!!!
I just love flowers, but as I live in an apartment, I have no space to plant them... I really like the "Butterfly Day Lilies" with its soft colors, but they are all fantastic!
Have a nice weekend Betsy!

Hugs from Brazil

CONGRATULATIONS Betsy. 10 years is a fantastic achievement and many more years to come I hope. All your day lilites are beautiful but my favourite is the Indian Giver.

Linda at To Behold The Beauty said...

Congratulations on your blogging anniversary, Betsy! Ten years! Wow! I'm impressed. You know, I took a year off blogging. When I came back, I checked up on some of my blogging acquaintances and found that their blogs appeared to be abandoned. Made me sad. Your day lily photos are gorgeous. No way I can pick a favorite.

Heidrun Khokhar, KleinsteMotte said...

Congtatulations. I feel glad that we met by this lovely medium. I have adored so many of your plants, started roses at my place too. And I have loved all your other posts along the way. Thanks for the sharing and caring.

Big Dude said...

You sure have a lot of varieties and pretty as always.

diane b said...

Congrats on 10 years of blogging and on those beautiful beds of day lilies. The wallabies love eating my day lilies. I'm thinking o getting rid of them and try something else that wallabies don't like.

BeachGypsy said...

Happy blog anniversary Betsy! Wow, time flies by doesn't it? I enjoyed the pictures. Our lilies are up and blooming as well...we have the yellow and orange ones like yours. I NEVER KNEW there were so many different varieties!! wow!! So many. My Mom loves Stargazer lilies. I guess I love the big orange ones the best.

Eva Marie O'Brien said...

Betsy these are amazing pictures indeed...and happy blogging anniversary!

Wishing you a great weekend :)

Janice K said...

Your lilies are amazingly beautiful. And I still can't get over how you know them each by name. I'm sure you have a system. Right now we have the wild lilies blooming here that often bloom along roadsides. I transplanted a bunch of them over 40 years ago from my parents" farm and am always happy to see them each summer.

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Betsy, Paper Butterfly is my favorite of your Lillies. Have a great weekend and enjoy the golf course, your yard, and the wonderful 'glade.

bettyl-NZ said...

Congrats on your blogiversary!! I wish I were there to see your lilies, too, because in our mild winter, it's all I can do not to go plant stuff--but I know I probably should wait until closer to spring. :)
