I have lots of lovely day lilies in my garden. They deliver a lot of beauty and colour. Their blooms last only a day, but each stem usually has several buds. A particularly stunning one, which bloomed for the first time this year, is “Chili Spice.” I quickly sketched the last of her 6 blooms (produced on one stem, every few days or so) before saying goodbye for this year. My sketch doesn’t really do her justice, but it was a joy to spend time really looking at this beauty. I will see her again next year.
Another wonderful day lily is one I bought at a former grower in Val-des-Monts many, many years ago. It produces stunning colour for most of August. The name is unknown — I’ll have to come up with a suitable one.
