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:
What others that bring to mind winter . . . surely Lime Frost (in bloom today)
And, Black Ice (from a few days ago):
What about Desert Icicle? – here she is from this weekend:
Santa Fe Christmas, of course, blooming today:
Oh, and Funny Valentine from a couple weeks ago:
Orange Flurry from today sounds like snow:
What about Autumn Jewels from today to start to cool off?
I’m feeling cooler already – now for the antihistamine and hopefully some sleep.
