Red Daylily - Poinsettia

Red Daylily
Hemerocallis 'Poinsettia’
(hem-er-oh-KAL-iss)

Red Daylily for Ruby Tuesday. These pictures were sitting around on a memory card I decided to clean off this weekend. Still have a couple of cards to go. This Daylily was growing at the NYBG and was literally blooming its head off. I have admired it for several years now and was glad a got a decent picture this year.


This other picture is from Long Beach Island. That card is just getting cleaned off too. The shovels just caught my eye in the Surf City 5 and 10.


Today the mums are getting delivered. They are bringing some bright yellow and some burgundy ones. Melissa was sweet enough to help Juno and I select a few of some other colors, also. There is also a 7-foot ‘Dragon Lady’ Holly on the truck. That is going to be prickly. The 60 mums have to go in today, as I am schedule to go to Hyde Park tomorrow.

The only problem with day lillies is that they never last long enough. They do, however, have the virtue of being something I can't seem to kill.

I hope the mums got in all right!

Can't beat the rich color of those day lilies, but I also have to say that the photo of the colorful shovels has a lot of eye appeal, especially for Ruby Tuesday.

Love the day lilies, but the colorful shovels really caught my eye. Makes you want to buy one, lol.
