July Daylily Roundup A-M

The next two posts are a listing of the daylilies that have bloomed ANYTIME during July – even if they started in June. It is a large list but also a colorful one. I believe only 3 of my cultivators were totally done in June – Saratoga Springtime, Scorpio and yellow Stella de Oro.

If you like Ned Roberts cultivators, you have come to the right place because I have about 70 of them, and most (except Navajo Curls and Adios Albuquerque) that are going to bloom the year have bloomed sometime during July.

I went to the rodeo here last night, so I am all practiced-up and ready to go.

Love Ya to the Moon!

Holy cow! I had almost 70 again today. We have been hovering in the 60s since 7.5. That is definitely a record of some sort. That said, the finales are starting to outnumber the premiers, so it should start to die down soon. That being said, I have about 30 with scapes that have not yet bloomed. I think my bloom rate is around 66% currently. (I finally moved my daylily software from my old computer – which took an hour to boot up ūüėõ )

Here we go – today we had two loves, one moon and one timber wolf as premiers.

Winds of Love 7.13 – I love the mellow colors of this Roberts spider.
Indian Love Call 7.13 – Weirdly putting out a first bloom when it normally is in rebloom mode.
Marque Moon 7.13 – A funny, ruffley guy from the local nursery
Lobo Lucy 7.13 – Another Roberts spider out dancing with her Chokecherry Mountain cousin.

Finales for today were:

Catherine finale 7.13
Early Bird Cardinal 7.13 finale
NOID Purple Mystic 7.13 finale
Wild Horses 7.13 finale. Was in bloom almost a full month.
Blackthorne 7.13 finale after producing only a few buds and not blooming for several years.
Mesa Verde finale 7.13. In bloom almost a month.
Wineberry Candy finale 7.13. This guy didn’t have a great year and likely needs some new soil.

I wonder what tomorrow will bring.

June Daylily Blooms A-Y (no Z yet)!

I’m back! My house is cleaner and I feel like I can pick-up the blog, again. Don’t worry, I spent my usual amount of time with my daylilies in the AM. I love getting photos of them – something to get out of bed for. After three years of a stressful job and a commute, I just had to clean because my poor home has been like a neglected garden. I needed to pull weeds and plant some new seeds.

I am going to show off my June blooms (A to Z) for June in this post. I am going to have a good bloom rate this year and it sort of scares me what peak will be like with all my plants so happy. Good thing the house is clean. I count 51 cultivators for June 2021. Last year, it was 50 in June – so close. I think I have about 180 cultivators now – almost 30% have bloomed.

Mediocre

Maybe it is because last year we had the rain and we were officially not in a drought that makes this year seem mediocre. I don’t mean bad . . . I just mean a pretty good drought year. But, an exceptional drought year just the same.

My irrigation water basically comes from a system that feeds off the Gunnison – This is Blue Lake Reservoir, where we camped, and it looks pretty full so far.

There are a few cultivators that didn’t bloom last year that usually are reliable – I think it was the freezing rain that stopped them. This year, Navajo Rodeo and Papa Longlegs sit looking like tall grass. Maybe I need to get the new pots going this fall – maybe the tree roots are taking over, again. I mean – the tree is thirsty, too.

Santa’s Pants 6.28.20

I had some premiers today – perhaps I should start with Santa Claus – because Santa’s Pants showed up today.

Wineberry Candy 6.28.20

Wineberry Candy also had a premier bloom. She doesn’t fit my name theme at all, but I wanted a new daylily the day I saw her.

Catherine Irene 6.28.20

Speaking of name themes – another from my family garden had a premier today. Catherine Irene – named for my mom. She is a pretty little mini.

Early Bird Cardinal 6.28.20

And, Early Bird Cardinal showed up for the first time. When I put the sprinkler (drip) system in a week ago, I wondered if I was on-time because her buds were so dry. But, they seem much happier with a little more water. Sadly, my porch drip system battery died and I didn’t notice – I lost some buds off of primal scream. Darn drought. We need monsoons.

Dream Keeper 6.26.20

And, one finale while I was gone yesterday – Dream Keeper. My spring bloomers are hibernating. Seems too soon.

A nice cluster of Ojo de Dios today

It was a fun weekend camping and I need to hit the hay. Tomorrow, another day of novel pretty blooms to explore. Good night!

Momma’s Bouquet

My mom would be 102 years old this day.  That makes me sound older than I am.  Mom waited to have kids.  It is also the anniversary of the job offer for my current job.  This job is a great match for my strengths, but not for my senior energy.  I am likely too liberal minded to be an early morning person Рmy coworkers do much better.  Yes, circadian rhythm does relate to our liberal vs conservative brain.  I am middle-of-the-road, slightly liberal.  And, yea, political views are only one small part of how this part of our brain impacts our work.  Liberals do better starting and ending their days later than conservatives.

FransHals8.24.2.jpg

Frans Hals 8.24

At any rate, I didn’t celebrate today – other than a few more air plants.¬† My yard looks neglected.¬† I worked all summer and camped every other weekend.¬† I¬†have been¬†keeping up with daylily photos (sort of), but not much else.

PurpleCornDancer8.24.2.jpg

Purple Corn Dancer 8.24

Today’s chore was installing a drip system in the front garden.¬† Daylilies, squash, poinsettias – they get too dry.¬† When I worked from home, I could run out and water.¬† Don’t get me wrong – I am glad to be less isolated.¬† But, my yard suffers especially when summer isn’t a pause.

Carlotta8.24.1.jpg

Carlotta 8.24

I went to the nursery for a plant for a coworker Рa surprise.  I grabbed a couple of air plants Рmy new addiction.  I like them because they are small and less needy than my orchids.  I was into water culture orchids Рbut with not being home, it is hard to keep up with all the water changes.  The air plants are small Рand I plan to get more into succulents as my current plants thin.

PurpleThunderbird8.24.1.jpg

Purple Thunderbird 8.24

So, the coleus were half price РI have some in with my daylilies that are on the side of the driveway but not in all the pots.  So, I grabbed 3 of those.  They are actually nice companion plants for daylilies.  I got some fall colors.  Then, of course, I have to decide if I bring them in when it gets cold. Probably Рone big pot.  I can take cuttings and replant outside next spring.  Sure . . . if I have time.

NavajoCurls8.24.1.jpg

Navajo Curls 8.24

Putting in the drip system meant giving the daylilies a haircut.  I cut a lot of stuff back Рlike those blue bells.  I have about 27 drippers in and 17 to go.  For now, I need to this sleep, precious sleep.  Goodnight, momma.  I lost you too young and miss you every day.

PurpleGrasshopper8.24.1.jpg

Purple Grasshopper 8.24

Oh, BTW РI tried the block editor for WordPress on Internet Explorer РIt was awful! A few more days of testing S mode before I likely go to regular Windows 10.

RubyStella8.24.1.jpg

Ruby Stella 8.24

One last note Рthe featured photo is from earlier this year.  Catherine Irene Рthe same name as my mom.

Desperado

It is roll-call day!¬† But, first, a dedication.¬† It is camping weekend and I was listening to a song “Desperado” on my ipod.¬† I have always identified with the song.¬† So, I will put El Desperado as our lead photo today.

Desperado – The Eagles

Desperado, why don’t you come to your senses?
You been out ridin’ fences for so long now
Oh, you’re a hard one
I know that you got your reasons
These things that are pleasin’ you
Can hurt you somehow

Don’t you draw the queen of diamonds, boy
She’ll beat you if she’s able
You know the queen of hearts is always your best bet

Now it seems to me, some fine things
Have been laid upon your table
But you only want the ones that you can’t get

Desperado, oh, you ain’t gettin’ no younger
Your pain and your hunger, they’re drivin’ you home
And freedom, oh freedom well, that’s just some people talkin’
Your prison is walking through this world all alone

Don’t your feet get cold in the winter time?
The sky won’t snow and the sun won’t shine
It’s hard to tell the night time from the day
You’re losin’ all your highs and lows
Ain’t it funny how the feeling goes away?

Desperado, why don’t you come to your senses?
Come down from your fences, open the gate
It may be rainin’, but there’s a rainbow above you
You better let somebody love you (let somebody love you)
You better let somebody love you before it’s too late

OK – so new to the garden for the first time in 2018 today is Pizza Crust.¬† I get a little hungry looking at her because I am stuck with low cholesterol pizza that doesn’t have much crust.

The Mamas and the Papas

This morning, I got that song from the Mamas and Papas “Monday, Monday” stuck in my head.¬† Maybe it is because I had Mama Cuna and Papa Longlegs blooming next to each other. I had 51 today! Monday mornin’ you gave me no warnin’ of what was to be . . .

So, for fun, here are the Mamas (Mama Cuna – L) and the Papas (Papa Long Legs – R):

 

So, we had 2 new faces today.  The first one is such a pretty flower.  Up until this year, when I started running out of blooms, I would go look for later bloomers.  Anyway, I almost decided to not bring one home from the nursery . . . until I saw the name.  Seriously, I squeezed her into one of the last Southwest Garden spaces.  She looks like velvet to me.

CherokeeStar7.16.2.jpg

Cherokee Star 7.16

The second new face is Bold Tiger.¬† Well, I think that is her name.¬† I got her on discount because they lost the tags and didn’t know what she was.¬† I did a search and she looks most like Bold Tiger.¬† So, we will go with that.¬† I believe that makes 112 so far this year.¬† We are at 64% bloom rate.¬† Can we get to 75%?

BoldTiger7.16.3.jpg

Finales (last blooms unless they send reblooms) today:

Oh, and Papa Long Legs Рbut he has a photo at the top of the page.  And, Desert Icicle retired yesterday, not Happy Hopi РI have one more Happy Hopi left.  I will miss these blooms, especially The Colorado Kid.  She had a great season this year Рbloomed for a month!  So, our numbers will drop off pretty rapidly by August.  Still hoping for a few late scapes!

Other blooms today: Aztec Firebird, Mount Echo Sunrise, Dream Catcher, Skinwalker, Comanche Princess, Navajo Rodeo, Mama Cuna, Cheddar Cheese, Nosferatu, Heron’s Cove, Canyon Colors, El Desperado, Purple de Oro, Bluegrass Music, Mildred Mitchell, Blue Beat, Ruby Spider, Return a Smile, Longlesson Show-off, Passionate Returns, Lullaby Baby, Chorus line, Mellow Balls, Lacy Doily, South Seas, Marque Moon, Stephanie Returns, Mini Pearl, Prairie Wildfire, Prelude to Love, Bela Lugosi, Pick of the Litter, Raspberry Propeller, Black Eyed Susan, Baja, Prairie Blue Eyes, Hesperus, Indian Sky, Just Plum Happy, Pink and Cream, Ruby Stella, Strutters Ball and Nurse’s Stethoscope.

 

 

New Faces, Finales, and Roll Call

It is time for Sunday roll call.  But first, a couple cool new Roberts Spiders.  Meet Mount Echo Sunrise РShe is a big spider that reminds me of Dream Catcher.  This is her first-ever bloom in my yard РI put her in a couple years ago.

MountEchoSunrise7.15.6withDreamCatcher.jpg

Then there is Sante Fe Christmas РAnd she looks like a Christmas bow.  Red, green with curly petals.  I really love her Рtoo bad she lost her other buds.  Despite the improved bloom rate, the drought has taken a toll.

SanteFeChristmas7.15.3.jpg

Next up – Finales.¬† Of course, Santa Fe Christmas is a finale today ūüė¶

Primal Scream is another finale.

PrimalScream7.10.2.jpg

Jungle Queen had finale blooms on both pots I have of her.

JungleQueen7.12.1.jpg

Iktomi is another finale.  I have enjoyed seeing the patterns in her offspring.

Iktomi 7.9

Happy Hopi gave a finale bloom today.  I really enjoyed her big, bold, blonde blooms.

HappyHopi7.12.1wAztecFirebird.jpg

Happy Hopi 7.12

Now, on to our roll call.  These are the blooms from 7/9 through today.  But, first, we have about 12 with unbloomed scapes remaining and mid-50s with no bloom/no scape.  We are at 107 cultivators (+/-).  Add 12, and we get close to 120.  I am still hoping for 130 total this year.
