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.
