Pizza Crust for Lunch

Pizza crust is what I had for lunch.  I shared a bite with my doggies . . . and then I found my daylily, Pizza Crust, in bloom.  This is a brand new baby to my yard.  I really love the mottling.  The colors are neat – and it is tall enough to go perfect in a back space in my flower garden.  You see, I planted the daylilies in that garden last summer, then dug out the old red concrete bed in the fall.  The bed is bigger than I thought, but the grass had grown over the edge.  I added bricks to the outside of the bed so that should not happen, again.

Another new bloom today is Royal Palace Prince.  It is a nice one that was a gift plant last summer.  I have found that my gift plants have had a higher rate of bloom this year (in my main garden) than the ones I picked.  I am guessing the hardy ones are generally the ones the sellers use as bonuses.

And, by golly, Miss Stella.  I am still chuckling at the poor nursery person who was trying to be nice and explain daylilies to me.  I said, “Yea, they are cool.  I have 130 varieties in my yard.”  Oh, the look on his face.  He went immediately back to watering.  Here is Stella:

And, my mind is now thinking of where to put the gift plants that I put in pots and they didn’t bloom.  I have ideas . . . now, wait for September.
