I managed to get some BEAUTIFUL pictures of my flowers today… This one is a Tigridia that I planted this spring. This one is the first bloom I’ve ever gotten off of it. It reminds me of an Orchid. It’s amazing.
These are Tree Mallow that I planted. The butterflies that are native to this area love them. Lay their eggs on them. I can’t wait. This particular bush blooms in the white of the top flower, and then as it ages, the blooms turn pink. These pictures are from the same plant.
Here’s where that 12 comes in. I collect Daylillies. I have about 5 species of them, and this one is my latest addition. I LOVE the green in the center of it. I’ve been wanting this breed for a while now. I have one that I am waiting to see. I took starts from some plants at the McDonald’s where we used to live, and I’m not sure if both the species survived. If it did, I will have one with this green on the petals, and a purple stripe down the center. Today, I went “shopping” in my town. Shopping for Dalylillies that I don’t have. When I saw them in a yard, I asked the owners if I could take a start. EVERY SINGLE PERSON said yes. Soooooo as of this afternoon, I officially have (I think) TWELVE DIFFERENT SPECIES of Daylillies. I am one happy girl! Can’t wait to see them in bloom.
