Various Pink Daylilies

Some of my pink daylilies that are blooming. Becky Lynn



Strawberry Candy and Decatur Apricot



Will Return



Canadian Border Control



Sweet Summer Valentine

I will be at the Oakes Daylily Festival today. The weather report is for rain, so we are going rain or shine. Hopefully the rain will wait until we are at least on the way home from the festival. A friend and I go every year. We pick out daylilies from the ones they have ready to buy at the festival. The daylilies at the festival are priced less than in the catalog and they are still large enough for us to divide. That way we get twice the daylilies for the price, even though they are already such a bargain at the festival. We usually get from 6 to 10 new varieties each year. The ones I have shown here were all purchased at the festival in years past.

Oh how I love that sweet summer valentine..such colors! I love the way nature has bled the colors together.... A lily festival sounds like a fun day and I sure hope that rain holds off until you've picked out all those new plants to add to your lovely garden!!

I had no idea there were so many varieties and colors of daylilies. Lovely photographs.

Beautiful day lilies... George keeps a spread sheet with the names of ours also--but we don't have as many as you do. Of the ones you showed today, we have some similar ones--but with different names. Who knows!!!!! ha

Can't wait to hear all about the festival--and the new ones you get.

Hugs,
Betsy

You really take the nicest flower photos! These were all lovely. I hope you have fun at your festival!

George said...

I hope the rain cooperated while you were at the festival and that you were able to pick up some more beauties like the ones you've shown here. We have Strawberry Candy and think it's a real beauty.

Mary said...

Pink is not a color I'm fortunate to see often in a lily. Pretty!

Several of my daylilies are blooming. I love all the daylilies, but the Canadian Border Control is gorgeous. I enjoyed the daylily festival and I look forward to it every year. I finally got my daylilies planted.
