Humungous red spiders surviving in a drought. Something the opposite of itsy bitsy spiders in the rain. Plus, these spiders are daylilies.
I only had two premiers today, and 30 total blooms. The first premier is one of the daylilies that my pup, Kachina, is named after. Yep, I was planting my daylilies when I rescued her. Her name was Tina . . . so Kachina fit perfectly. Honestly, I think this is the only bloom I have ever had on this particular cultivator in 4 years since I planted. So, that is a real premier bloom.
The second big spider was one of my early mail order daylilies. I think it reminded me of Ruby Spider. This is probably one of the biggest blooms in my collection if you measure petal-end to petal-end.
The wind blew in cold and a touch of rain. It took forever for a lot of the blooms to open and they always look funky when that happens. But, the two big, old red spiders were wide awake.
I’m up to 50 cultivators that have bloomed now. That is 30% and it isn’t July yet. Let’s see what tomorrow brings.
