It's neat seeing the breeding progression from Precious Candy to Marina Del Rey. When I saw your photos of Xylophone Jazz last year, I really loved that one. But Marina Del Rey looks to be an improvement with the wider edge. Is it a larger bloom than XJ? Waves of Joy is just marvelous, and your gorgeous photos are going to make acquiring that one difficult. I remember how much you loved Sherry Candy when you first got it. Is it still a favorite?

I've got a question on another of your daylilies - English Lavender, which I bought from you on the auction two years ago. Does it ever bloom late for you? It's scaping early here again, as are Silver Rings and two lates I got from Trimmer last year.

Debra, I don't have English Lavender anymore, but I do remember it blooming late here.

Marina Del Rey is a MUCH improved flower and much larger than the other two. I would say that it is about 6 inches, it is registered at 5.75 inches. It is also the bluest eyed one I have ever seen. First flower was awesome. XJ and PC are small here.

Yes Sherry Candy is still a favorite of mine. I use it to set pods every year.

Waves of Joy is a huge flower, you can see it from across the garden.

I took some more pictures.

Smooth Talker is a really big flower.


Bluegrass Music, thanks Ann.


Oklahoma Sand Burr, thanks Ann again.


Get Jiggy and thanks to Ann once more. We traded some last year. Well actually she replaced a couple for me that I had lost.


Orange Electric, an oldie but goodie.

Outstanding blooms and photos today, Dot. LOVE Marina del Ray, and like how you showed the progression from Precious Candy. I really like all of these. I am glad you are getting blooms on Jiggy, OK Sand Burr and Bluegrass Music. OK Sand Burr is one of my very favorites because of its long bloom season and all the teeth on both petals and sepals.

I have a few but they don't compare with Dot's photos. Hope you enjoy them anyway. The only thing blooming are the new arrivals, which are still in pots.

Dot - Thanks for the info! Oklahoma Sand Burr's teeth are very impressive!

Ann - I love every photo I've seen of Stenciled di Fresco. Old Moonlit Masquerade had its ffo here today, but everything else is running way behind.

Well it goes without saying that I love Sun Scream. Gorgeous photo of Stenciled Di Fresco, mine is done blooming until rebloom. Irish Jackpot is just soooo pretty.

There wasn't one ugly flower in any of those photos! Drooling Drooling Drooling Drooling Drooling I'm almost out of drool. Thanks so much for sharing these beauties! I probably won't get blooms from mine this year since I moved them to a new house in another state, so I'm going to have to enjoy them through everyone's pictures.

Michele, thanks for the bunny pictures. They are so cute! We had a family of four baby bunnies when we moved in. Sadly, they didn't survive, and it wasn't pretty. Luckily bunnies breed like bunnies, so I expect that we'll have more soon.

Great blooms all around!

Freakin' adorable little bunnies! We had a best in the yard that the dogs uncovered. We got all covered up to mask the scent and moved them to a more secluded spot, mamma included, in a small wooden box with some straw and what not. She moved them back every day for almost 2 weeks then one morning they were up and gone. I still see the mother (she had a distinctive white spot) but I don't know what became of the babies.
