I love this time of year, when all the dayliles are in bloom. I look forward to the early mornings, when I can tour my flower beds and snip off the spent flowers from the day before. It's so lovely knowing more will be blooming as soon as the sun is on them for a bit.
I have two new varieties this year, which I've been looking forward to posting shots of.
Both came to my garden from dear friends. The first is one that I bought at a garden centre a few years ago and gave to my mentor, Rita. Last fall, she gave me a division of it for my own garden. It's my only double daylily and it's a lovely peach colour.

The second new one is a two toned orange and yellow one, given to me by my great friend, Paula. This is a really different one, because there are actually two different colours, but every second petal is actually the different colour!

Hope everyone is enjoying their gardens. We're having a little bit of cool weather here. Hopefully that will mean that the flowers will last a little longer!
