lullaby

there are a couple of lullabies growing here in the garden.  this one is apparently named for an old jazz standard.  Lullaby of Birdland the daylily stands 48 in 122 cm tall and has an 8 in 20.5 cm bloom.  and for the fans of skinny flowers it is a spider.  it is a dark imposing flower with a green throat.  it is a cross of  Art Gallery Quilling × Royal Celebration.   it stands 18 inches taller than either parent.  and this summer there were some seeds made with this flower.  perhaps in time i will become more familiar with the music.  one quick listen is not enough.  until then the flower will serve as a reminder.   two images   enjoy
