Well spring is here and my daylilies in Australia are off and running for the season.
We of Oz will have lots of seedlings this year - fingers crossed.

I have high hopes for this cross. Some more to come. I was hoping to have something blazing red from BLC in there ready for when Clint Eastwood's movie on its breeder comes out.

PS. There is a mirror below you will see. This is to keep Sulphur-crested Cockatoos away from the first colourful buds and flowers in the garden. They cannot resist rendering them.

Thanks Debra!! It will be interesting to see if the red comes out more in its subsequent blooms. Skinwalker cross blooms always start off big too. This one is 8.5 inches. The cockatoos are gorgeous - but 20 at once wiped out a season's ago's hybrids. The plants are just recovering and hopefully will be out this year.
Other bird's babies are up and running. These are Bush Stone-curlews and the babies are just 7 day's old. They are insect eater's thankfully.

OMG! Before I enlarged that photo I thought the toad was gonna catch and eat the baby bird! Hilarious! Those birds are so cute!

Glen, do you mean the cockatoos will be so busy admiring themselves in the mirror, they will leave your daylilies alone? I do the same thing so the cardinals will leave my windows alone! Works like a charm!

Not that the cardinals are actually admiring themselves! They're fighting with their imaginary competition, rather than beating the crap out of my windows. Glare

Lol. It is a plaster-of-Paris model of the Common Green Treefrog .
This frog is much beloved by the general public. It 'croaks' in drain pipes when rain is imminent. But like all large amphibians they do catch and eat anything smaller than themselves. Little known, this species catches bats by waiting at the small entrances of caves at night.

Mary, yes, it puts the cockatoos off for similar reasons. They are challenged by an image that gets larger as they approach and does not retreat. Unfortunately, I cannot put mirrors everywhere and sometimes I have to resort to wire netting or just cry.

Out yesterday was this one. It was sold to me as HEMEROCALLIS LILIOASPHODELUS but I doubt it more every year because the bloom can be more orange than yellow.

I am using a dye when I spray the clumps now. It is an excellent facilitator because one can see what one has sprayed. This blue product also gives the foliage of the daylilies a lovely green colour as a side effect, which causes great admiration. But it gives me a lovely blue colour. It is supposed to be biodegradable. Well if it is not, I am.

Thanks everyone. What lovely people you are!

Today, DALRIADA. It and its parent HIGH ENDEAVOUR are nearly always first to flower here. Well, Nunan did breed them about 40km north of here.

Mike, thank you. Bron and Della are lurking. Bron's blooms are on their way. Della's will need more warmth (she being in Tasmania so close to the South Pole).

Hilarious! Ahhh, you're all good for the soul!

Where I sit, watching the great Antartic glaciers calve, the daylilys are still slow, crisp, and, well... kinda bleached. One did open a few days ago, but drained of all colour. Probably would've been sweet in a salad. Smiling
