The Daylilies of Winter

The heat of July is upon us!  I got stung by a wasp last night and I get a local, allergic reaction.  So, my hand is red, swollen, blistered and itches horribly.  Summer . . . one of my favorite seasons.  Yet, those bugs . . .

So, to shift thoughts to times where wasps are non-existent, let me shift to our one and only Premier daylily bloom today. (I still had almost 60 in bloom).  Her name is Candy Cane Dreams and I got her as a bonus with Santa’s Pants.  I had no idea where to put her, so she is in the barrel planter with Black-Eyed Susan and Stella.  She is kind of cool – she does look like Santa’s Pants!

OK – So that always gets me thinking of the winter named daylilies.  Here is Santa’s Pants from a few days ago:

I’m feeling cooler already – now for the antihistamine and hopefully some sleep.
