Saving the Best . . .

. . . For Last! Today came what I think is likely the last of the premiers of the season – Purple Corn Dancer. Honestly, one of my favorites! It is almost sad because Saratoga Springtime is cool enough, but not a favorite. Saratoga stars when my desire to see daylily blooms is the highest. Purple Corn Dancer is frequently the cultivator with the last blooms of the season. Funny, she showed up the same day Olathe Sweet Corn was shipped across the State!

Purple Corn Dancer 8.5.20

All too often, I am sidetracked or just at a saturation with daylily photos. I guess it’s like how they say there are almost always more photos of the first born child.

Purple Thunderbird 8.5.20

I had 13 today and I am exhausted after my first day back to work in 5 months. I think I will just feature my Ned Roberts cultivators from today. Purple Thunderbird had a nice bloom, even at 6:45 AM.

Navajo Grey Hills 8.5.20

It is interesting how daylilies look different throughout the day. Navajo Grey Hills looks like she is falling in space at 6:48 AM

Cripple Creek 8.5.20

Cripple Creek is an early riser and was bright-eyed for the AM photo shoot.

Desert Icicle 8.5.20

Desert Icicle actually looks really good first thing in the morning. She resembles Skinwalker first thing in the morning.

Shape Shifter 8.5.20

But, Shape Shifter is having a hard time opening her eye.

Golden Eclipse 8.5.20

I had to wait to get Golden Eclipse until after work. Fortunately, it was a short work day (until 3:30) and some cloud cover, so she also looks decent.

Absolutely, some of my favorites still blooming. So much richer than the yellow trumpets of June. Now, to find time to savor them all.
