Green Thumb Sunday

Join Green Thumb Sunday

As usual, my assistant is helping:

I'm lucky she does not sit on the seedlings, but between them...

Yesterday, when I left to do grocery shopping, the buds were closed. When I came back, the sun had reached them and they were open. Here are the first daylillies of the season.

This one was given to me, I don't know its name...

This one is called By Myself. This is one I've purchased last autumn after reading a post by Kerri of Colors in the Garden. She had been visiting a lilly farm. I was already planing to start gardening again. This post has been a great incentive. Thank you Kerri! If I remember well, they did not flower before mid-July last year. Maybe the rain of this spring makes the bloom sooner...

Gardeners, Plant and Nature lovers can join in every Sunday, visit As the Garden Grows for more information.

Very nice daylillies. Love the colors. I wonder why the name, By Myself? It's an interesting name.

Nice blooms Vero. What a good assistant to not sit on your seedlings. Handsome cat.

Day lilies,hemerocallis(I think) are so called because each individual flower only lasts a day. I used to have lots but they have disappeared over the years.

I'm still waiting for my daylilies to bloom. A lot of them have damages from hungry slugs (we had a rather rainy period!). Yours look so beautiful and sain!

Vero, I'm so happy you're enjoying the daylily blooms already. I also have 'By Myself', but you probably know that already :)
Your lilies are beautiful. They do seem to love plenty of water. Will you add more this year?
We hope to make a trip to the lily farm some time in July.
You're lucky to have such a pretty assistant to 'help' you in the garden :) I've enjoyed all your pictures of her.
Happy gardening to you!
