This is an older one, but a great performer and a beacon in the garden.

It rained most of yesterday. This is a photo of my smoke bush with the raindrops in the "smoke" or blooms.

Great pictures Ann. I really like Tahitian shores, Blue Eclipse and the Smoke bush with all the rain drops, it's awesome. Ehren Thomas is blooming for me today also.

Thanks, all. The bloom on Tahitian Shore was enormous for a newly planted daylily.

Ann, your blooms are beautiful! I really like the smoke bush picture, too. The water looks like ice crystals. What a welcome slow steady rain it was here, and I bet there, too.

Ann, I love the Smoke Bush! That is so amazing!!! I would have spent hours making photos at so many different angles. Stunning!! You should really enter that in a contest.

Oh, yes, I love the daylilies too!

I love your smoke bush picture -- very artsy! Your daylilies are so beautiful, and I especially love your EHREN THOMAS and ICICLES. My ICICLES has just started blooming, too, and yours has quite a bit more color than mine. I guess it's our heat, as so many of mine never seem to show the depth of colors that the blooms of the people back east have. That's why I enjoy so much seeing everyone else's blooms, so I can see what mine SHOULD look like! nodding

I love Villa del Sol, it just glows. I love the older one sometimes better the the newer ones, they seem to perform better.

Several FFO's today, many not worthy of photographing.

Orange Cherry Jubilee - FFO It seems a lot of mine have spooning on the sepals. I don't know if it is the cool nights or what it might be.

Great pictures Ann, yes the cooler nights make the sepals spoon. The heat makes them look much better.

Is the composted one because it is similar to too many others or is there some other characteristic that is unacceptable? I am interested in what criteria are used by different hybridizers to decide what to nurture and what gets tossed.
If you don't ask, the answer is always 'no.'

I don't think the seedling that will be composted is very pretty. I didn't get further than the bloom to even look at branching and bud count. There are so many daylilies somewhat similar but better. No need for another one.

I took a few photos this morning. It was a cool morning so some had not completely opened. We are about two weeks ahead of schedule, but our temps are about normal.

Smooth Talker is a BIG bloom, not quite open.

Mystic Image had three flowers open this morning. The double edge on this one is very nice and as our temps get hotter, the edge gets bigger.

Dragonfly Dawn



A couple of seedlings

I have kept this one for several years. I like the bloom - it is small, maybe 4" but it doesn't rebloom.
Thumb of 2012-05-16/farmerbell/d270cf

This is a FFO ever. I can't capture the color with my camera, which doesn't like dark flowers. It is a dark burnt orange, not red. It also has some thrip damage. Note to self - spray for thrips. This is Ethel Buccola X SC Hot Tamales.

Smooth Talker is really big and showy, but hard to capture it's beauty with a camera. I know what you mean about thrips and I DID spray. It only seemed to help a bit. But, Talladega has been outstanding this year and with very little thrip damage. Awesome pictures!
