DAY LILIES in our YARD, 2018 --Part II

Day Lilies blooming  on 7/3/18
Dear Friends,   Today I am featuring  Part II of some of the beautiful Day Lilies that bloomed in our yard this Summer...  (If you missed Part I,  click HERE to see them.)    I will have one more set to do next week....  I don't know if you prefer seeing them close-up as singles or in larger groups.  SO-- I'll do some of both!!!   Hope you enjoy them  --and are not  'day-lilied out'.......  ha

Pandora's Box Day Lilies --6/22/18

Trahlyta  Day Lily --6/25;   I love all of the colors and designs in this one.

Savannah Debutante  Day Lilies -- 7/4/18   (This is one of our 'double' Day Lilies. Very unique!)

Double Eyeful Day Lily--6/4/18  (such a unique Day Lily)

Elegant  Candy Day Lilies  --6/22/18

Spellbinder Day Lily ---6/13/18

Charles  Johnston Day Lilies --6/22/18

Wild Horses  Day Lilies --6/19/18  (a special Day Lily every year)

Carolyn Criswell Day Lilies  7/4/18

Orange Vol  Day Lily 7/5/18  (Love my Tennessee Volunteers)

Spanish Glow Day Lilies  --6/29/18  

Pink Playmate Day Lilies ---7/5/18

Lemon Vista Day Lilies --6/22/18

Christmas Wishes  Day Lilies--- 7/3/18  (one of my favorites this year)

Night Beacon Day Lily ---6/22/18  (another one of my fav's);   The design in the middle looks like the Tree of Life --with light flashing off of it.   Night Beacon seems to be a perfect name!

Day Lily Bed  --and Canna Lilies (upper left)-- 7/6/18   (Loved our Cannas this year)

As I have said many times,  George and I love Day Lilies.   Besides being so pretty and bringing color to the yard--they are easy to grow and since we buy re-bloomers,  they will bloom again in Fall.   They die back in winter --and come back in Spring!!!!!

Any favorites today for you????? I always love hearing your thoughts.

Hope you have an awesome week.

WOW! These are all lovely, but the one that spoke to my heart was the Savannah Debutante.

I don't have any daylilies at all. I can see why you and George love growing them.

Have a great week ~ FlowerLady

Hello Betsy, I love all your day lilies. Beautiful variety of colors and blooms. Happy Monday, enjoy your day and new week ahead!

Betsy said...

I love the rose header you have. Beautiful roses.
Daylilies I had have all been taken out by something. I give up unless I put them on some kind of barrier in the ground. I even had daffodils around them too.
Happy Monday,

Betsy said...

Good morning Betsy, I think my favorite out of this batch is the savanna debutante. They are all so beautiful though, it is very hard to choose. Thank you for sharing more of the beauty of your garden with us my friend.
Blessings, Betsy

Gorgeous!!! Carefully watching Hurricane Florence - looks like we are in for some rain... Stay safe!

Ginny Hartzler said...

Definitely Savannah Debutante for me today! So many fluffy petals, and such a soft color. My second fav may be Pink Playmate. The Criswell and Spanish Glow look alike except for the color, I like them a lot for the edges of the petals.

Chatty Crone said...

I think my favorite is Savannah Debutante Day Lillie - I love the color and it reminds me of my daughter's hair color!

David said...

Betsy, Our yard is drab compared to yours so I'm a little envious...except for the fact that I don't like yard work or gardening. So I'll just celebrate you and George's efforts! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

Just a gorgeous collection. You know,I can't pick a favourite.Usually it is the last one I saw, but then the next one is just as pretty, so all are my favourites.

Connie said...

Your daylilies are absolutely gorgeous, Betsy. You are blessed with such colorful beauties in your yard!

Arkansas Patti said...

Love them too and they are pretty much low maintenance. I really liked the Savannah Debutante. Very feminine with all the ruffles.

Ann said...

These are all so pretty. I can see why you like them so much. No way could I pick a favorite. I love them all

Bobbi and Gracie said...

All so pretty!! I can't decide which I like best.

My favorite photo in this set is the one of the Spanish Glow day lilies. It's just a beautiful image. Being a horse lover, though, I'll have to pick the Wild Horses day lily as my favorite of the individual flowers. Your photos of these gems are all lovely.

linda m said...

I can't pick a favorite as I love them all. I definitely will have to look into the re-blooming day lilies for my yard.
You and george sure have a gorgeous looking yard.

Dee said...

Dear Betsy, they are all beautiful, but my favorite is "Candy." That color is so subtle. It makes me wonder where color resides in a flower. Exactly what color is to begin with. Guess your photographs made me feel a little philosophical! Thank you. Peace.

Linda said...

Very impressive! Do you have like acres of property? You have so many different flowers; it is amazing.

Jeevan said...

Such bright and beautiful Day lilies! Simply loved all the colors and unique aspect of each bloom. Pretty nice capture from you as clusters as well outstanding individual! Cheers Betsy

Shug said...

and I'm guessing there is such a sweet fragrance all around you. These are each so pretty. I think your neighborhood should vote your yard as "Best Yard"

Lady Fi said...

Your flowers are just gorgeous!
