Return a Smile :-)

Today, no new blooms.  I am impressed, however, that Return a Smile returned.  It’s the one I divided into the front garden last year.  It has never rebloomed in the container.  That is cool.  The old gal has grit.

In my positive psychology course, we are talking about how we tend to mimic the faces of those who we make eye-to-eye contact with.  Smiling does usually get returned.  And, they are calling this a form of love.  So, I will credit my daylily for reminding me of that lesson today.

I decided to update my collage of Roberts daylilies that bloomed this year, as I think Ghost Ranch may be the last.  I am still hopeful for late bloomers, but no scapes yet.  This can always be updated. If I get 80% next year, It will be 40 or so cultivators.
