The Wild Horses of Mesa Verde are in My Garden

Today, three newcomers!!!  The two mentioned in the title of this post are two of my all-time favorites.  And, believe it or not, neither resides in my Southwest garden.  But they sound like they should.

Wild Horses is a breath-taking bloom because of the striking pattern.  I see the horse in it. Do you?

And, Mesa Verde is striking for her ruffles.  This daylily is amazing to watch bloom.  It takes until nearly noon . . . like waiting for a baby to be born.  Also, notice how the color turns from pink to bright orange.  (4 photos, below)

Lastly, an old friend, Early Bird Cardinal.  It is a sweet red ruffled bloom.

And, for tomorrow . . . I think Stephanie Returns, Pink Enchilada, Inwood.  A couple of my near blues are getting close . . . Bluegrass Music.  Now, there is a story to tell about that one!

And, Yellow Spiders Everywhere!

It may sound like Alfred Hitchcock movie, but it is actually much better.  Spider daylilies – Heavenly Curls, Desert Icicle, and Lady Fingers were all in bloom today and are featured in today’s collage (below).

The new bloom today is Marque Moon.  I ended up accidentally buying two Marques last summer.  I found the second one on super sale without a tag, and I thought it was a different flower.  So, when I created my family section, I moved both Marques to a different part of the garden together.  I used to think this was the most ruffled daylily ever!  That was before I adopted Mesa Verde.

And, I am mentioning the one I called Montrose Sunset again because I found out its real name (I think).  I posted it to the American Hemerocallis Society Facebook page, and after some discussion, there was pretty good consensus that it is Orange Vols.  And, once I heard the name, it sounded familiar.  No more fugue state for you, little one.  We figured out your real identity.

So, the collage is below.  Twelve blooms.  Actually, it’s a nice number.  Variety, but not so many that I can’t savor each one.

And, so I shift back to homework.  Still waiting.  Staying in positive emotion as much as possible in order to broaden and build my resources.  Thanks, daylilies.
