Jungle Queens and Voodoo Dancers, Oh My

The storm is passing, slowly but surely.  It should start warming up by the end of the week. However, it wasn’t a bad daylily day.  A Jungle Queen and a Voo Dancer showed up!  Now, that is something to blog about.

Jungle Queen was amongst my first Lily Auction purchases.  It was the day I needed to figure out how to win stuff so that I would get Kokopelli when the bidding closed.  After losing on an earlier Ned Roberts daylily, I was determined to figure out the system.  Jungle Queen caught my eye . . . and now she lives in my garden.

VooDoo dancer is one I purchased locally this year to go in a beautiful Mexican pot that my daughter bought me when they came to visit for Memorial Day.  It should be a double bloom, so still adapting to its new surroundings.  I’m hoping to see doubles soon!  It is really pretty in the picture . . . more purple, too.  I’ll put the web picture below. Hopefully, it wasn’t mislabeled 😦

Two of my Ned Roberts spiders are in bloom today.  For fun, I put together a collage of all the blooms I have had from his creations to date.  Five so far. I have 40+ Neds in my yard – so 10%.  The larger ones (Chief FOUR Fingers and Kokopelli) are from today.  This is the first FOUR finger bloom on the Chief! The smaller ones are Black Ice, Dream Keeper, and Winds of Love.

Other bloomers were Ruby Spider, who adds visual splendor to both the front and side garden today.  In front, it was a little red, white, and blue.  And, on the porch garden, it was a pose with a friend (Return a Smile – I think).

Early Bird Cardinal landed again, too.

I have had 18 different blooms so far this year.  It is a start!  Tomorrow, I am betting on Canyon Colors.  Can’t wait to see it!
