Day Lilies in my yard

This bouquet was hiding behind my red rose .  I have been know to say "Oh I wish everything in my yard would bloom at one time."  However if everything bloomed at once your eyes would bounce around and nothing would really stand out.  Then when the blooming time pasted you would have a dull yard.  I like the saying there is a time and season for everything.  Now is the time for Day lilies this is the way it should be.  I am trying to have something blooming in my yard all the time, so far so good.  I have had  Face book friends to ask where I bought my Day lilies.  My Grandson Paxton gave me ten for my birthday last year, some have not bloomed yet.  I spent over fifty dollars  on line with Smokey's day lily farm  so I would not have to pay shipping, and he sent me a bonus.  This will be a blog of pictures, I hope you enjoy.

Along my path Carrel built is where most of my day lilies are planted.  I will not have two alike, some will bloom only once, however most all rebloomers and will bloom all summer.

I have been called the Queen of Roses by a friend on Face book, so of course I could not leave without a picture of a rose.  I am glad they are blooming back.  all of my day lilies have not bloomed yet, they are younger than the others. I hope you have enjoyed this page in my garden memories of my day lilies.  Thank you for watching my garden grow and bloom and hope you will grow one of your own.  Happy gardening to you from me, I hope you have a fun summer, Juanita

This is the first bloom of this Peony day Lillie   


  1. You have a wonderful collection of daylilies.

  2. Thank you Charlotte and Flower Lady. The Day lily is going to be my main flower around my roses. I want to order a few more and match the roses if I can.

  3. It looks like I've met a fellow plant collector. LOL I enjoyed looking at your beauties! Some of my daylilies are stressed this year, I guess, because of the heat. I don't grow roses, though, except for one I got from the bargain table a few years ago. It doesn't need to be sprayed. It has half inch light pink blooms all summer.

  4. I like your blog, every thing is stressed we finish watering the beds and have to start all over again. The Rudbeckias like to stay just a little moist, it really takes a lot of work. Thank you for reading my blog and yes I love all kinds of plants.
