Today, I got up early to go to a doctor’s appt. It was early enough that buds weren’t open yet on my quick trip to the garden. By the time I got home a couple hours later, the UV was on high and I had a zoom meeting that lasted 90 minutes. By the time I got to go out to the yard, my daylilies looked like I did after standing out there for 5-10 minutes: Hot and sweaty.
I had some nice premiers today – Black Ice is my favorite dark daylily and is a Ned Roberts creation. Unfortunately, the sun leaves the dark ones really zapped.
Apache Bandana also had a premier bloom for 2020 – I like the pattern on this Ned Roberts spider
Treasure of the Southwest also had a premier today. These blooms are huge and very pretty. Nice bonus from a few years back.
Bela Lugosi also bloomed = man, the sun and dark cultivators. The good news is it looks much happier since I put in the sprinklers.
I also had some more finales today. Funny Valentine had a zillion buds and they are all done for 2020.
Pink Enchilada also had its finale today.
And stunning Mauna Loa is done – man, that corner is boring now!
The peak is on . . . I am falling asleep typing this. Ni ni.
