Late to the party ?

Let’s keep this simple.  The past 3 or 4 weeks many daylilies have been blooming.  Now they are starting to wind down.  It is time for the ‘lates’.  These are the daylilies that bloom after all the early daylilies are tired out for the season.

One of the late season daylilies is Suzy Cream Cheese.The party is not over yet…

No Instructions Included

This is a daylily seedling.   Sometimes you think you know where it came from and what it might do when it grows up.  Sometimes there is a little marker that says who the parents are.  And who Prince Charming is supposed to be.

Then there are days when there are few clues.  No neat little signs or notes.  Just a seedling standing on its own.  Those are the days when you don’t have a clue how Cinderella cruised into the party.  Or what became of the pumpkin or the mice.   Then you just need to look for that glass slipper and figure out what kind of adventure you and Cinderellie might have in the garden.

Better yet – pitch the glass slipper.  Don’t listen to the fairy godmother that says the magic ends at midnight.  There is plenty of magic and surprises each day when the sun comes up.
