It is a beauty in a clump! This is the first time there has been enough to do that. I am really loving it.

One more shot (I took a lot that day.) Lots of buds still to go.

Thanks everyone. I had a great birthday Friday.

I had this nice long post all typed in Saturday morning and then the computer went blue screen and rebooted itself (a recurring problem that is in the works to correct.) I lost all that I had typed and kind of lost interest (for the moment) in retyping it. Grumbling

Trying again.

My parents called to sing me a Happy Birthday (in two part harmony as usual Smiling ) and we had a nice chat. We talked about books that we had read recently and I was speechless when my 80 year old father asked me if I had read the book he had just finished....50 Shades of Grey! *Blush* Nope. Even if I had, I am so NOT telling him! Whistling

Friday night my DH surprised me with a bouquet of a dozen red roses! Thumbs up We left the kids at home happily eating sushi (yes they like it and we can get it at Publix grocery store). My DD likes California rolls and my DS likes Inari (sushi rice in a pocket of fried soybean curd). We went to a restaurant called Pauli’s. Overall the food was great with a few minor complaints. We had a couple of cocktails and then went on to the appetizers. We each ordered one and then shared. The Bruschetta was really good, a Grilled Foccacia with some kind of soft herbed cheese (goats?) with fire roasted tomatoes and red peppers on top. Yummy! Thumbs up The second, wood-fire grilled Sea Scallops on a bed of Angel Hair Pasta, Roasted Mushrooms and Pesto was very tasty, but I was extremely disappointed with the portion size. At $13 a pop, I expect more than two scallops, Thumbs down especially when the waiter had described the portion as more like 3-4, plenty to share. Both our entrées came with soup or salad and we both chose the signature Spinach Salad served with Red Onion & Boiled Egg with warm Apple Smoked Bacon Vinaigrette, very nice! My DH had a yearning for steak, so he chose a hefty 18 oz, bone-in Ribeye, grilled on a wood-fire and served with Grilled Onion Rosemary Butter, “Garlicky” Broccoli and Chive Mashed Potatoes. I had a bite and it was tasty, but I liked my entrée better, a roasted New Zealand Rack of Lamb drizzled with Dijon Aioli, roasted asparagus and some kind of couscous. We had a Rodney Strong Merlot with dinner and finished it off with coffee (decaff for me, thank you very much!) and two very sinful crème brulees with berries on top. I ended up taking two of the four lamb chops home and ate them for dinner last night. Almost as good the second time around.

My daylilies put on quite a show and I will post pictures of them later. Here is one to tantalize: Lip Smack 5-18 FFO

Several years ago I "rescued" some daylilies from an overgrown stretch of road near my house. I am not sure how they got there since there is no house. They were across the street for a house that had daylilies (they have since been removed Crying ) so they might have come from there. Who knows, all I know is that no one was taking care of them at that point. I dug them up and planted them in my garden and called them my Wild Dunloe daylilies (after the street name).

They are of course NOIDS, but I like them. One bunch must have been mixed or had a seedling growing in there as there are definitely two kinds of flowers. I like them both. These are my WIld Dunloe Purples. I had one planted elsewhere (location F3) that appears to be the same of flower as one of the mixed ones. What do you guys think? Same flower for locations E16 and F3?

Wow, you did a lot of those lovely things, and I know it does take
time to do. Thanks for sharing.

Your menu choices made me hungry, and I have already eaten,
but they sounded sooooooo good.

I confess that I copied the on-line menu descriptions with minor alterations, but they were as tasty as they sound. Hilarious!

I have fun posting, so I am glad that you enjoy them.

I was glad that I rescued the poor Dunloe daylilies as that part of the road is completely overgrown now and does not ever get any sun. Any I missed will never bloom now. There are two other ones that I have from the same spot that have not yet bloomed this year.

Here are the blooms from last year for Dunloe Wild White

And Dunloe Wild Unknown (called that because it was not in bloom when I dug it up and I had to wait two years until it did, well worth the wait in my opinion.)
Thumb of 2012-05-22/Ditchlily/7b1d9a Thumb of 2012-05-22/Ditchlily/b7980b

Wish I knew if they were registered also. Sigh, pretty NOIDS.

Here are the poor things before I rescued them in 2008. Sorry for the poor quality of the photos. They were taken with my phone, the only digital camera I had back then.

This will give you an idea of what the location looked like. I put the white marker there so that I could find it once it had finished blooming.

They are just sweet. I remember when you rescued them. I am curious if they were just tossed there or if planted on purpose by someone??
