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 – She is a big spider that reminds me of Dream Catcher.  This is her first-ever bloom in my yard – I put her in a couple years ago.

MountEchoSunrise7.15.6withDreamCatcher.jpg

Then there is Sante Fe Christmas – And she looks like a Christmas bow.  Red, green with curly petals.  I really love her – too 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 😦

Primal Scream is another finale.

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

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

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

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.

July 1: Daylily Roll Call!

It is Sunday and the peak is starting.  It will probably take me an hour to get this bog with all the photos for the week published.  I am doing it this way so that each daylily comes up on a couple searches of the blog.  My job entails creating about 20 template emails a day for the following day – it is a lot of looking up progress and pasting from my last note.  Not a creative’s dream.  So, when I save my drafts for the day, I have a blank email to note that it is a new day – and that email is always named after a daylily.  The most creative 5 minutes/day of my job is picking this daylily.  The collages just don’t work.

So – We will start with the newbies.  Primal Scream is in bloom for the 3rd year.  Last year, the blooms were small and anemic.  She is now in an above ground put inside the Walkway Garden.  I hoped for more scapes, but 2 is OK for this year, gives the fall transplant.  Nothing beats her vibrant color.

PrimalScream7.1.3.jpg

Primal Scream 7/1

Indian Giver was a newbie in the Southwest Garden.  She is a small daylily and was a bonus plant 3 years ago.  She only gets a couple buds every year.  She needs to be dug up and put in a buried pot, but the yucca is close, so not sure how I will get this done.  I would like to have more blooms.  She is adorable.

IndianGiver7.1.3.jpg

Indian Giver 7/1

Last but not least, from my Family Garden is Stephanie Returns.  This flower makes my heart sad.  Losing a family member who is still alive is horrid.  Losing several is bitter and cruel.  Please don’t tell people you understand or offer advise while you are surrounded with family.  Please don’t tell people God is giving you this lesson for some reason or other.  Do bookmark this page and come back here and look at this flower and help send positive vibes to anyone in the universe who had ever known the heartbreak such a loss can bring.

OK – Enough heavy stuff.  Onward to the roll call.  Here go the A-Z blooms from 6/25 through today.  Enjoy.

Horses, Canyons, Rodeos, and Our Blooms for the Week!

Summer is here! I got home from camping 6 hours ago and am still trying to get everything done for the weekend!  When I don’t take photos in the morning, the blooms are pretty sunburned by noon.  And we had wind today.   And single digit humidity.  So, for today there were 5 new blooms.

Wild Horses is a favorite, dependable bloomer.  I have had her 3 years and she puts on quite a show.  Can you see the wild horses in her pattern?

WildHorses6.24.1.jpg

So, Chaco Canyon bloomed when we returned from this same camping adventure last year.  I love her stripes!

ChacoCanyon6.24.1.jpg

A brand new face for this year is Navajo Rodeo.  Waiting 3 years to see some of these has taken patience.  She reminds me of Talon, but redder.  I am sure they are related.

Ruby Spider is one of my oldest blooms, and always a favorite.  She is huge, and oh so red!

And little Happy Returns is back.  She is such a delicate little yellow trumpet.

So far, that makes 36 that have bloomed in the yard.  Of 170-something.  21% or so of my cultivators have bloomed so far.  Tomorrow, it looks like more new faces will join the count!

The Colorado Kid: Our blooming mascot

“Monday, Monday.  So good to me.”  When it comes to new blooms – the song rings true. I feel the peak drawing close now.

First of all, our blog mascot The Colorado Kid had her first 2018 bloom.  She seems to do well in my yard in a pot.  Many hybridizers say they don’t get the color that I get.  She is one of my near blues.  I love her deep colors so much.  Of course, her name is why I chose her.  Then, the blog got named after here.  This is her 3rd year blooming here!

Then, Zuni Eye, one of my Ned Roberts southwest named daylilies bloomed for the first time ever here.  So many of his are spiders.  But she is a big, big round bloom.  I think I am in love!  She has been here 2-3 years, and she apparently likes the improvements to the Southwest Garden. Today, I finally met her.

The other new bloom is out of the no-ID pot from the back corner garden.  I named the first one Dark Mystery.  This is the second cultivator from that big pot.  I am calling her Purple Mystique.

So, today I shift to only sharing new blooms.  I will have the full list for the week with photos each weekend.  FYI, the other blooms today were Dark Mystery, Saratoga Springtime, Purple Many Faces, Comanche Princess, Stella de Oro, and Treasure of the Southwest.

I have had 20 cultivators bloom thus far this year – of 170.  So, just over 10%.  By this date last year, I had 7 that had bloomed.  I have added a handful more, but I think I had 160 or so last year.  So, less than 5%.  It is all the Southwest Garden, the Border Garden and the Rainbarrel Garden that is boosting the total.  All of those were added or greatly upgraded last year when I decided to stop buying new daylilies and help the ones that I have to thrive.

I think tomorrow is going to be busy at 6:30 AM.  Good night!
