A Time to Every Purpose

Today, Ruby Stella bloomed.  She only has two buds left and freeze is headed our way soon.  I was thinking of firsts and lasts today.  My first daylily bloomed in March . . . in zone 6A.  Indian Sky was accidentally forced on my porch and produced two blooms.  She did not rebloom this year.

My first in-yard bloom was another container that was forced a bit early from winter on the porch – Electric Lizard.

My first planted in the dirt daylily to bloom was Dream Keeper (6/13) – this is my daughter’s choice for a painting for her birthday.

And, the last . . .  Miss Ruby Stella from today.  Last, but not least.

They spanned seven months . . . maybe we make it to October?  Then, eight.

The other thing I hope spans a lot of months are the new labels.  What a project to make these for every daylily, not just the 50 or so southwestern garden ones that I blogged about earlier this month.  They have held up, so I am giving it a shot.  I just want labels that last more than a month or two.  So, we will see.  Fingers crossed.

PS – I did become a Doctor of Nursing Practice.  And, then I went on a camping road trip through SE Utah.  New job starts next week.  Time to get cracking with some winter strong labels!
