Photos of My Daylilies
Here are pictures of most of the daylilies I grow. Some of them have not bloomed for me yet! I will try to keep adding my new daylilies as I get their pretty faces on film. I hope these beauties can serve as an inspiration for all those daylily collectors out there!

Scapes Up!!

Best Blogger Tips
The weather here has been horrendous.  Winds topping out at 70mph, cloud to ground lightening, tornadoes, but not a whole lot of rain.  :o(  I took a quick stroll through the garden today to check for any major damage.  So far there are two wax myrtles that have broken some major limbs.  I think they may have to be sacrificed.  :o(  But that is for another day.  Today, while walking the garden, I found scapes up, although not on the plants I expected...

These are my Extra Earlies and Earlies:
Extra Earlies:
     Wren's Song
     Laughing Skies

Neither have scapes.

Some Earlies:
     Ballerina Beautiful
     Spacecoast Surprise Purple
     Pixie Plaything
     **Precious Candy
     Pink Flirt 
     Katrina Heroes
     **Leslie Renee
     Lavender Fantasia
     Heaven's Declaring
     Itty Bitty Blue

Only S.C. Surprise Purple has scapes.

Most of my scapes are on Early Mids, with some Mids...

Winter Losses Part Deux... Great Daylily People

Best Blogger Tips
After loosing so many new daylilies this past winter, I was trying to soothe myself with my seedlings, and being excited about what might bloom this year.  But.... I was still a bit bummed out.  They were some really nice daylilies!  Thankfully there are some wonderful people who have picked up this hobby.

A friend that I met through the Garden Web Forums plant swap was SUPER SWEET and sent me a very nice replacement fan of PRECIOUS CANDY,  ~*AND*~ a couple of fans of ZAHADOOM!  (It needs the exclamation point, don't you think?)  So, now I have a new CV that I love.  Thank you Dianne!!

I also contacted Dan Hansen about the cost of replacing some of his CV's that I purchased at the Region 6 Daylily Auction, and he said he would replace them gratis!  Wow, that is really generous!  So, two days ago I got a package in the mail.... and I could tell by the smell (don't you love that smell?) what was inside!  A box from Ladybug Daylilies!!  There was PURPLE PAJAMAS and BEACHIN' BABE, and nice, huge fans!  I couldn't believe it, but BEACHIN' BABE already had a scape on each of the four fans he sent.... wow.  Thank you Dan Hansen!!

These acts of generosity really take the bite out of the winter losses!  I love daylily people!
