Without any prior planning, purchasing, seeding or really any maintenance, I found that at this time of year, I have multi-colored day lilies blooming all around my property! This one is my particular favorite. The color really is spectacular–a deep pinkish fuchsia with subtle white stripes and a warm yellow center. It is such a surprise and delight to discover these blooming after such a dreary winter.
Now these here are the tangerine/coral variety and have recently spouted up all over my front yard. I cut several buds and arranged them in a pretty vase. I also forgot that they are day lilies; meaning they bloom and wilt within a period of a day. When they bloom, they are large and magnificent. When they wilt, they get this awful purple juice on my white wicker furniture. Maybe they don’t make the best table centerpiece indoors, but I thought it would brighten up my sunroom so much!
These lovelies are my hydrangeas. I only know this variety of flower from Harry Potter book 5 :). Just look at these velvety, lush petals! The pink is vibrant and the lavender shade is mixed with a je ne sui pas hint of periwinkle. Beautiful! These last much longer than the day lilies as home decor pieces. They have been going for a week strong now!
This past weekend, my OSU gals paid me a quick visit! We went hiking and frisbee throwing in Frick park. Check out our daring ravine escapade!
