"When you have only two pennies in the world,
buy a loaf of bread with one,
and a lily with the other. --Chinese proverb
I love mid-July; the daylily garden is bursting! Tall ones, short ones, ones inbetween -- the colors are superb and the names are irresistible!
Consider: Devil's Footprint, Magic Carpet Ride, Prince of Midnight; Paper Butterfly, Hot Ticket, Farmer's Daughter, Gentle Shepherd.
Some sound like old friends: Monica Marie, Alec Allen, Betty Warren Woods, Barbara Mitchell. Others are towns or cities: Atlanta Fringe Benefit, Lights of Detroit, Jerusalem, Chicago Sunrise.
I've just read about a yellow-gold daylily I think I'll buy for this year's addition to my gardens.
It's called, believe it or not, Delores Gould.
