Blooms in my garden this month.

We are at the start of Summer over here, but have been experiencing mass rainfall events over the past few weeks, so many blooms are not at their best Sad

Hope you enjoy my photos.

The first one here is not in your database Confused
"Booroobin Magic"

Cheers
Robyn

Thanks Tim.

Hope you are all safe from the tornadoes over there.
I'm married to a Yankee and my step-daughter lives in Chicago, so we have been watching CNN, seeing all the devastation. It's all so tragic.
Stay safe.

Cheers

Hi Jill,

"Booroobin Magic" is for sale from multiple nurseries in Australia, maybe just not registered in the USA?
The breeder has some registered there... Scott Alexander. Most of my plants came from his nursery in Maleny. I live quite near there.

Am I allowed to post photos of plants not registered in the US?

Cheers
Robyn

Please post your pictures (registered or not) and do not be deterred if the blooms are not in the database. I appreciate seeing blooms that I probably wouldn't see otherwise.

I have a bunch of named, unregistered plants, courtesy of G Wild who sold them to me for years. Breck's also sells unregistered named plants. I always post them, there's no Daylily police here! Just people super eager to see the blooms of Australia as you experience them this summer. Post on!

Chicago was safe from the severe weather, Robyn, but the other end of our state and Kentucky were not so lucky. Speaking of weather, I remember watching the news regarding the horrible fires that were in parts of Australia a while back, so I was kind of happy when you mentioned you were getting rain, even if it's more than you were wanting.

All kinds of daylilies are welcome here. Beggars can't be choosers. Smiling

We love pictures! Please post as many as you like, Robyn. My garden looks bedraggled, and I will love seeing what's in bloom on the other side of the world.

So nice to see your blooms, Robyn! Doesn't matter if they are registered or not. We love seeing them all and look forward to seeing many more over the coming months. Have a great summer!

Yes, the tornados were devastating and went about 90 miles to the west and south from where I live, but I still didn't sleep much that night not knowing where the storms might go. So terrible!

I would say as someone in New England that Yankee was a New-Yorker myself (Yankees Thumbs down ).
The arch enemies of our beloved Red Sox (who are in New England).
Have never heard it referred to the Maine/New Hampshire/Vermont trifecta. But that sounds cool. I will have to ask a real New Englander what they think.

Well, I'm a real New Englander even though I live in Georgia. I was born in the Boston area and grew up in Connecticut. I am a true Red Sox fan and am the proud owner of a "Certified Yankee Hater" T shirt I bought outside Fenway in the 80s.

The distinctions in the use of "Yankee" I mentioned in my previous post are separate from baseball. I read about them in a article on linguistics a long time ago (I can't remember the exact source), and they stuck with me because they reinforced my general observations. The article is old now, so usage may have changed.

I have never called people from New York "Yankees" even if they are Yankee fans.

Love your tee-shirt. Hilarious!
Linguistics is awesome Hurray! . There are some fascinating language things I have noticed here, though (some online, some in-person).
One that annoys me the most is when people write "could care less" when they actually mean "couldn't care less". Both statements essentially mean opposite things, and a lot of people write the former when they mean the latter. D'Oh! I can only assume they grew up hearing the phrase but did not hear the 't' when people spoke, so now write it incorrectly.
One other I had to get used to at the stores here was when you are at a checkout (or anywhere with public-service people) when you say "thank-you" after your interaction they then say "Mmm...hmmm" or "yup", which is to me a slap in the face. It essentially means "go away, stop bothering me". These-days, I have mostly stopped saying thank-you because I cannot tolerate the rude responses. But sometimes it slips out unconsciously, before I can stop myself. *Blush*
However, no doubt our Australian friend has picked up on many Americanisms from hubby.

We could start a language conversation if you want in the Porch Swing thread. I know people have a lot of language pet peeves. I do as well. I love talking about language as long as it doesn't devolve into a "I-hate-the-way-these-people talk" kind of thing.
