My World: Day Lilies in Bloom

Spanish Glow Day Lily, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. July 25, 2011.

This is my post for the My World meme.  It is hosted by Klaus, Ivar, Sandy, Wren, and Fishing Guy.  To learn more about our world or to join and share your part of the world, click HERE.

Betsy and I missed the blooming of most of the lilies and day lilies in our yard because of our trip last month.  But some day lilies are continuing to bloom, and we are enjoying their bright refreshing colors during this hot spell we’re enduring.

All of these day lilies are in our new flower bed along the road, and this is the first time they’ve bloomed for us.  The day lily above is Spanish Glow.

Carlotta is the reddest of our day lilies.

Wild Horses Day Lily, Fiarfield Glade, Tennessee. June 30, 2011.

Wild Horses only had one blossom while we were home, which made it difficult to get a good picture.  But I did like the color.

Elegant Candy has a pretty — dare I say, elegant — pastel color.

Fooled Me Day Lily, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. July 25, 2011.

We weren’t sure that Fooled Me was going to bloom this year, but it did come through and shared its bright colors with us.

    Wild Horses is a strange name for a flower, but my favorite today is Spanish Glow. It has a wonderful glowing center in combination with it’s color!! I just caught up with your post from yesterday, I could hardly believe my eyes!!!! Those teepees really look man made.

  8. Rajesh Says:

    Gorgeous lillies. Your collection is colorful and love the variety.

    What quaint names for lilies! They are a credit to your gardening skills, George. You, and my grandfather on my mothers side (Austrian) and my grandmother on my fathers side (irish) would have made quite a trio of horticulturalists. Well done George.

    PS: Betsy and I could have sat on the sidelines and offered out “expert” advice – ha ha!

    I am so happy to know you were able to see the fruits of your labor! Got the vacation AND the flowers too 🙂 woohoo! They are gorgeous! I’ve only had 1 bloom so far but we just planted ours about a month ago. I am really looking forward to next spring/summer!

    Thanks for sharing your lilies!
