July too was, as June, so, so warm and sunny. I either read or heard it was the warmest ever. So when it dropped from the about 29-33 Celsius we had for weeks, the about 20 which is more normal here, now actually feels cold. Here are some July photos. I have the same photos posted on Instagram. Be well and safe you all !
Here are three photos from yesterday when there was one flower in bloom of this beautiful daylily. Today there are two flowers in bloom. Of course I have to take photos of them too. Will post them later today or then tomorrow.
The Catherine Woodbury IS BACK. As my mother would have said: It’s a miracle. My mother loved flowers. I remember times when she was sad because a precious flower disappeared from the flower bed to then a year or two, or even after longer, be back. The Catherine Woodbury was away, according to my photo albums, since 2016. I say welcome back. The Strawberry Candy yesterday had the most number of flowers in bloom on one day. As many as six 🙂
Yes, yes, yes . . . First two Strawberry Candy lilies are in bloom. There will be more. It was pretty dark and rainy practically all day. I went for a walk at about 6:30 pm. Half way I noticed the sun is shining. I walked as fast as I possible could to get home before all the dark clouds at the other side of the lake would be here. I made it and was able to shoot a couple of photos with a bit of sunshine through the branches of the oak tree in the neihgbor’s garden.
Of the daylilies the first to bloom is the one I call yellow/orange lily. Then, soon, very soon, maybe tomorrow, the Strawberry Candy lilies will bloom. This is the first time there are as many stems as nine. Then there is one with three stems which I am not sure of what it is. But, I really hope it is the pink one called Catherine Woodbury which disappeared some years ago. Or it may be an other one, an orange one which also disappeared a year or two ago. We’ll see.
