The Day Lilies

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.

The above information is from Wikipedia. I’ll just keep it simple and  call it Orange Lily 😉

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.

      Thank you 🙂 Aww, I wish you will see some soon. You usually see them at dusk. They are cute, specially the small ones, the babies. I saw many when I was a kid and lived on the country side, on a small farm. I hope to see him soon again and be able to shoot a pic. Have a nice August !
