Whenever I look at photos from the yard, sometimes color jumps out at me. That’s why I’m doing several posts focusing on a specific flower color.
Kindly Light Daylily (Hemerocallis ‘Kindly Light’) is another great bulb flower. Its spider like blooms last all day. I usually avoid plant catalogs from northern climates because we simply can’t grow so many of their plants here. But I have found one I really like. Old House Gardens is a family owned bulb company in Michigan. But many of their bulbs are grown in the south. They provide specific information about growing conditions for each type of bulb. Their newsletter advertising specials also has interesting information.
One of the bonuses of working in the yard are the creatures that fly around. But to be clear, I only like the non-stinging and non-biting kind. For some reason, mosquitoes love me. Even when I spray with a Deet product, I come in covered with bites.
Isn’t it amazing how many different varieties of plants and insects there are.
