Delightful Daylilies


During these warm, languid summer days, my lilies are blooming. It's a good thing they don't seem to mind the lack of water. Nonetheless, a good downpour would be thirst-quenching for the dusty earth. Besides, my rain barrel needs a refill!

My mom used to grow lilies, which may well be one reason why I do. Is there something you grow because a loved one did (or still does)?



This stem caught my eye. With some buds stretching out to the left, others to the sky, and the bloom reaching to the right, I'm reminded of a dancer's graceful movements. Just a bit of whimsy, on my part.

I'm joining Little Red House for Mosaic Monday. Head over to Mary's blog and see her gorgeous photos!

Thank you so much for visiting. If you have a little time, linger awhile and take a look around my garden. You're welcome here.

  4. Beautiful lily mosaic. This is my first year to grow lilies in any significant number - we now have a deer fence! I am looking forward to seeing the lilies open up and to having lots of colour in the beds.

  5. When the daylilies are blooming, I see no reason to focus on anything else. Yours are lovely. I especially like the six petaled one with its petals spread. It's a new one to me. Lovely, lovely mosaic.

  12. Thank you for taking the long route to my MM post :) I wonder why my link wasn't working? I re-submitted it on Mary's blog, and I appreciate your letting me know it wasn't working.

    Your day lilies are very beautiful! I love their assortment of colors. I wish I had more room in my garden to grow more lilies and other flowers. I love visiting blogs such as yours so I can enjoy your flowers. I'm becoming a follower!

  14. Daylilies are one of my favorites. I have quiet a few of the yellow variety. They are very hardy, one of the few withstanding our triple digit temps. Your photos are lovely, and a beautiful mosaic.
    Hope your have a great week.

  20. Gorgeous daylilies. I love the extra color they give the garden right now. Sadly, the deer in the area have decided some of them are tasty!

  21. The lilies have seemed exceptionally happy this year, haven't they? They must love heat and humidity. Beautiful mosaic full of lovely flowers.

  23. Hi Karen
    I have many lilies too and love them for their easy care. The red one in the top left of your collage is a beauty!
    I would say peonies are my favourite to grow because of the ones my grandmother had.
