Where there were only buds yesterday, this morning there were open blooms. Every day now will bring more new flowers.
I can't remember exactly when I became enchanted with day lilies, but it's been at least 20 years and I still very much enjoy them. Perhaps it's because they are so hardy, needing very little care, and that they multiply like rabbits, bringing me more and more beautiful flowers each year. I've been saying for the past three summers, at least, that the lilies need to be divided, but I've delayed doing so, putting forth a number of excuses: it's too hot, it's too cold, it's too wet, my back hurts, I don't have a new bed to put them in, etc., etc.
Well, I have a new bed, at last, courtesy of my gardening daughter, so I need to get over my weak excuses and get the lilies thinned out as soon as it's time to do so. I'm sure they would like a bit more room to breathe.
