The day lilies begin to open their blooms with perfect timing. Greeting me every morning with a fresh new bloom.
They appear overnight and in such a timely fashion. The spring garden is just beginning to wind down and I am ready to pull out the poppies and larkspurs.
There never was a more neglected plant than these and yet every year here they are with their gorgeous blooms. Is there a day lily that is not loved I wonder.
These plants came from an old colleague of my husbands who have a ranch down near Gonzales where they breed their own lilies for enjoyment. The names are long lost but their generous gift goes on for ever.
