All three daylilies are in bloom. All the other lilies have, because of the very warm temperatures, finished flowering already. Also the snails and beetles made them look sad as they ate both of the flowers and the leaves. I wonder if there is something I can add to the ground that would prevent the snails and beetles.
Catherine Woodberry Day lily. Or is it Woodbery or Woodbury or . . . you get the all three versions on Google.
Orange Daylily Hemerocallis
“Hemerocallis fulva, the Orange Daylily, Tawny Daylily, Tiger Daylily, Fulvous Daylily or Ditch Lily (also Railroad Daylily, Roadside Daylily, Outhouse Lily, Tiger Lily, and Wash-house Lily)”
The above information is from Wikipedia. I’ll just keep it simple and call it Orange Lily 😉
Strawberry Candy Daylily.
Good thing is there are no snails and beetles on this side of our house where the daylilies are. Only a cute hedgehog. Saw him yesterday at about 11 pm. We have not seen any, around here, for years. I read they eat both snails and bugs. Hmm, hedgehogs, they might be the solution to the snail/bug problem.
Yup, good. Still there in the morning. Got a better pic now than last night when the sun shone straight to the lens.
It was surprising to yesterday afternoon see a small seaplane parked at the dock down by the lake. It’s not a every day sight on “our” lake. Actually the very first time I’ve seen one here. It looked so nice. Imagine being able to land and for a moment sit on the dock and enjoy the warm, beautiful evening sun. Then take off and continue flying over beautiful lakes and fields. Yes, thank you, that I could definitely think of doing on a windless summer evening.
Our adorable, gorgeous Bengal cat Quismo turned eleven on Friday 18th. We all kissed and hugged him and he had en extra meal of chicken. He loves chicken. We were very busy on Friday so I totally forgot to take pictures of him as I had planned to do. Love you Quismo ❤
In the middle of May I bought a tomato plant. It’s years since I had tomato plants. At one point I had 10 plants. They gave plenty of tomatoes. We had tomatoes at every meal. In the end of the summer there still was so many green tomatoes that we had to pick them and take them indoor before the frost. Some of them we put on a tray to turn red and ripen. Of the rest of them my husband made pickled green tomatoes.
Tomatoes are cheap to buy in the summer time. Yesterday I bought plenty as they were only 0,99 euro / kilogram. So why grow plants? Well, because it’s so nice picking a shiny, red, sun warm tomato from your own garden or your own patio. Also they taste better. Don’t they ? Perhaps I will have more plants than just one next summer.
WOW! My Lily Lollipop (or is it Lollypop ? I see it written in both ways on the net. ) has two flowers on one stem. I was afraid there wouldn’t be any because of the lily beetle.
I read the plant profile for Lilium Lollypop. It says the stem is 60-70 cm, flower head size is large. Mines are very small. The stem is only about 15 cm. The flowers are smaller than the ones in my friend’s garden. I’m happy even with this baby size plant and flowers
I’m sure there will be more of them next summer. The plants will be strong standard height and the flowers will be large.
