Daylily Rodeos

Yesterday was our County Rodeo. I go every year.  In fact, when I worked less in the summer and didn’t have so many dog duties, I went almost every evening to some event.  The rodeo signals that summer is on the downside.  I guess we are only 5 weeks into summer, but school starts in a couple of weeks or so.  And, the daylily blooms drop off – which I only had 50+ of today.  That is a drop off of 10-20.

Anyway – not a Premier, but Navajo Rodeo looked very pretty for rodeo weekend.  I need to paint her this winter.  IDK which Robert’s daylilies I want to paint the most – but there are a lot.  By far the highest bloom rate of his cultivators.  So many first blooms this year.

That is my segway to the Premiers for today.  Only two.  The first one is a never bloomed in my yard before Roberts spider named Dancing Maiden.  She looks a lot like Aztec Firebird, except her shape is a little different.  I barely noticed that she was from a different plant!  I should have put her in a different place – but oh, well.

And, I got my first ever bloom on Sanctuary in the Clouds.  I got this daylily for the woman who runs the animal sanctuary (Black Canyon Animal Sanctuary) where my dogs (and one cat) came from.  I ordered this for her the year I adopted Kachina – so 2016.  It came with lots of fans and I saved one.  Anyway – finally, she blooms!

Tomorrow is Monday – so squeeze blooms between my workday! Better get to bed.
