WOW ! I was thrilled in the morning to see five flowers in bloom. This is the first time there are more than two flowers in bloom on the same day. Of course it was a must take photos. So, if the number of flowers is five or less per day for the next days there will be no more pictures this summer 😉
The orange daylily is the last one to bloom. Only one stem with about 5 more buds. Since the beginning of the summer I have seen no snails among the lilies but yesterday I saw one on this flower. You can see the petal has some damage to it. Under the petal to the right you can see, if you look close, a small snail. Ufff ! I really thought I had managed to get rid of them .
In the morning, Saturday 15th, it was thrilling to see the first of the two buds on the plant my friend gave me a couple of weeks ago opened. The plant is about 35 cm tall and the flower about 5 cm wide. I was not sure would it have the strength to bloom this year. Such beautiful color ! I googled for pictures of yellow daylilies on the web and found many that look like mine but with stronger yellow and red color. I think the lighter color of mine is because the plant is so young. According to the pictures my baby plant is a Hemerocallis ‘Fooled Me’. I can’t wait to see it fully grown to about 50-60 cm tall and 12 cm wide flowers.
Two more photos of the pink lily or as I saw online some call them orchid-lavender or peach pink. I’m so much looking forward to the orange ones to also bloom soon and to perhaps be able to take some photos of all three or actually all four different color daylilies in one picture. The fourth one is the one my friend brought me two weeks ago. My friend has daylilies in several different colors and was not sure about which she brought me. We’ll have to wait and see.
The Catherine Woodbury is in bloom. The first flower opened yesterday. Two stems, the other one with a total of 15 buds the other 10 buds. When I look up for pictures and information on this flower there are about 50/50 many hits for both Catherine Woodbury and Woodbery. Hmm, which is the correct one. The two first pictures I took at about 8 am and the last one at about 5 pm.
First thing I did Sunday morning I looked out the patio door. No, no Strawberry Candy in bloom. Monday morning the same thing. No, not yet. Today, there, the first one in bloom. Even before having my morning coffee I took some pictures of it plus some more during the day. I know, way too many, as always. There are two stems, nine buds each, makes eighteen flowers which makes me very happy.
