Daylily Blooms Last Forever!

Perhaps it is the blog.  Or, perhaps it is painting with my granddaughter a few days ago.  And, maybe it is because I want to keep peak season alive all year.  At any rate, I broke out the paintbrush in an attempt to keep my last Zuni Thunderbird alive forever.  It was fun.  And, it’s been 9 months since I painted one of my cultivators.  That’s too long.  So, I got my fix.

Frans Hals appeared for the first time since 2014.  I like this older daylily so much that I bought one online only to discover that I had one in my yard from the years when I wasn’t quite this addicted.  I like bi-tone daylilies – I think that they are stunning.

My mind is shifting to fall.  I’ll be a doctor in a little over a month.  I hope that there is a bloom on the day I give my presentation.  That would rock.  If there isn’t, I will still wake up to my favorite blossoms.
