I decided that I needed a place to start putting my photos, as I always have a bunch of them. Be it from my daylily cultivars, and obsession with attempting to capture a shot from each bloom; or from the multitude of other garden happenings. I do welcome any and all to join in on the discussion with me, I do tend to prattle on to myself quite a lot. I suppose I could use the "blog" section of the website to do this, but I like the format of a forum better.

I will start actual "bloom" posts in a little while, but until then- here is a photo that I wanted to be used for the top. Rolling my eyes. I should have probably cleaned them off before snapping a picture, but I am scatter-brained. When it rains very hard, the decorations in my little annual raised bed gets spattered with bits of mud and then it dries.

Here are the Daylily Bloom Shots that I captured today.

Acorn Street Urchin - I think this might be my favorite of the reds that I own. This is the last bloom of the year for it. It was the first year that we had it bloom in our garden, planted last fall. The first bloom was on June 28th.

Acorn Mexican Maiden - Last blooms of the year on this one also.

Acorn Howdy - Again, last bloom. It was considerably smaller than all of the previous blooms.

Acorn Two Part Harmony - Final blooms. It did not give me a "true" double at all this year.

Acorn Chinese Cloisonne - The eye/watermark on this baby. It is the closest to "blue" that I have, it is classified as "slate" and I definitely agree but I have nothing else like it. I absolutely love this cultivar.

Acorn Janice Brown - both of these photos were taken at the same time. The sun was peeking around through some clouds and caused them to come out differently, the second is closest to true.

You have very good coloring on your daylilies. Your pinks really shine through. May your week be joyful and peaceful!
I prefer to walk in the light, I prefer a world where people want to be kind and bless each other, I prefer a God who loves and shares so much that he gave up his only Son for me. I prefer to choose the God of Abraham. Let there be peace and let it begin with me.

Adventures with Chicks and Rollers.

A dear friend had shared some of her Hens and Chicks with me and my Momma a week or so ago. I've never had any, and I knew that Momma would like some. My husband and I chose to put ours out on the bank behind our house that definitely needs more than a few things for ground cover. My Momma put hers into a decorative wheelbarrow to let fill up.

I don't have any pictures of them on the bank yet, they seem to be pouting a little after having been moved from the tight confines of the flowerpot. Hubs and I will probably need to go back to the bank and make a 'dip' for the roots. No biggie.

My neighbor friend shared a few Rollers with me the other day when I stopped by her house to take a few daylily cultivars that she did not have. I must have looked like a kid walking away from the blackberry bush with them, as I just had a handful of them walking around like it was completely normal.

Before taking many daylilies (to the best of my knowledge, before that day she only had ditchlilies) to the lady I got the Hens and Chicks from- I split the handful of Rollers I had in two to be able to share with her as she said she had none that were as small as these.

I know nothing about which Cultivar of both the Chicks and the Rollers. But I do foresee another small obsession building. nodding I wanted to be able to start a planter with only One of the Rollers- I've never seen them multiply and I am excited to be able to. As for the other 10 or so; I am thinking about putting half of them in a Cinder Block, and then the other half into a different container for Momma.

For the planter to be able to stalk, I mean *watch*, I used a re-purposed solar lantern that hangs on the side of our porch. I have many pictures of it, in many seasons- but these are my favorites.

The cone hanging from the bottom is the part that I used, as it no longer lights up at night. It used to change colors between the primaries and the blends between. Glare It was very pretty.

It is going to be prettier, now. Whistling Lucky me, there was already drainage holes in place to keep the cone from standing in water when it was a lamp.
