Cool, rainy weather is welcome after a month of pretty warm weather. Still, I dread the end of daylily season. Summer is the time when I live outdoors. My daylilies get love and attention at some cost to my routine housekeeping duties. And, when it is not daylilies, it is hedge, lawn, veggie garden, or weeds. And, then there is school and the job search. However, arranging my day to increase positive emotion means time with the daylilies . . . broaden and build.
So, today is a low-census day in the daylily garden. The blooms rest as the rain falls. Still, I have baby scapes starting on some . . . like the May ones on most of my plants. Can I extend my bloom for two more months? Until first freeze? We will see . . . always a stretch goal. When it comes to goals, I am a maximizer. Or so say my Gallup strengths.
So, for today, there is Fine Time Lucille:
Fairy Tale Pink:
Royal Palace Prince:
Both yellow and orange Stella de Oros:
And, little Purple de Oro:
Tomorrow is another day . . . and my focus may just turn to transplanting some of my potted daylilies into the garden. If the rain stops.
