My day lilies are about to come to the end of their blooming season. I still have a lot of flowers showing, but the new buds are getting fewer and fewer. The blossom shown above is one of two different varieties my sister sent me several years ago. The lilies, whose names of course I do not know (shame, shame on me) came from Wayside Gardens. This one has a purple throat, the other is a bright coral. They have really been prolific bloomers this season, thanks to all the rain we had in May. I've leaned that water, water, water, is the key to getting blooms. I don't know what I'm going to do for flower posts when the lilies are all gone; they are about the only blooming plants in my yard!
