August 1 and I have no more than twenty blooms in my garden. Here is the highlight of the day, and probably the remainder of the year;

I will have to rely on those of you blessed with more propitious circumstances to supply blooms for us to enjoy.

Wish I could send you some rain, Charley. We've been in drought, but anything for a friend. Group hug

I forgot one.... Moroccan Sapphire, it was facing and up against the wall, and since it's a poly-ish bloom, I just had to pick it for a photo opp. Smiling

Beautiful start to the August thread! Noticed today Waterpocket Fold had it's FFO, it always signals the beginning of the end. Sad Long day, new images still in camera. These are all still blooming although some only have a few buds left.

Kirlian Photography and Piece of My Heart


Pink Promenade has been putting on a great show this year.


Smooth Groove, a relief form from Lee Pickles.


and some cristate forms

Double Minded, not a double. Registered prior to the recognition of Sculpted cristate for this single flower form of daylily, it does bloom without cristation occasionally.


Kentucky Shape Shifter, this one doesn't show cristation very often .


Little Big Ears, shows varying amounts of cristation with pleating. Trenton Many Faces, moved this spring showing no cristation on this FFO. Instead relief is shown which is normally hidden by cristation.


Two Views, huge blooms, some cristate, some not.

Change of pace.

I'm not posting these as examples of good photography (God forbid) or of exemplary blooms. These are my cast of characters list, my performers as it were, for the end of my season (and a very short play it has been.)

If you search these photos In most of them you will find nascent buds waiting for water, some are obscured but they all hold promise.

Looking good, Charley! It seems you've had a pretty decent season, although short! Smiling I tip my hat to you. I have loved seeing your blooms and 'obligatory weeds', and enjoying your humor! Smiling Smiling

I've had a great deal of wonky blooms, this year. More than ever, really. They are curiously pretty cool, and I've posted a few on the thread, The thread "Poly blooms and oddities" in Daylilies forum along with my polys. Smiling

A great deal of gorgeous polys have been posted by the Gang, too! Lovey dubby It's been a fun thread! Smiling Smiling

Just posting ONE. It's a new favorite of mine. This is its first year to bloom and I can't believe how tall it got. I got it in 2019 from twixanddud (Laura). It didn't bloom last year but REALLY made up for that this year. I haven't measured it but it has to be almost at its registered height. I'll have to check on that tomorrow. I have one scape staked but it really didn't need it. I put that on it one windy day just in case.

Enjoying all the images this evening. I've heard Scandinavia is a good one, looks very white and the form is so elegant.
Ran around today picking things up after pollinating...we're suppose to get rain. Blinking We haven't had real rain since Thinking May? Or maybe that was snow. Have to remember to bring my garden shoes in tonight!

Five Hanson's to start off...

Another image of Alone Again, Curt describes it as soft violet purple...soft? This is bold in your face violet purple! And Sea World similar coloring just not as bold.


Embryonic Journey, a nice lavender pink blend with ruffles.


and two warm ones, Crintonic Painted Desert and Sierra del Rojo.



Boundless Beauty and Sleeping Giant, never gets to it's registered height of 28 inches. More like 16" tall with an 8" bloom....a bit strange looking!


Screen Pattern, awesome pattern every time.


Jukebox Saturday Night has an interesting color with a satin sheen and Cool Change wishing we'd get one. The heat and humidity have been awful!!!
