You know it is June in East Tennessee when the daylilies bloom! And they are blooming like gangbusters here at Grey Havens cottage! When we moved into our new home last year, we had to start all over again with planting flowerbeds. We have only a tiny fraction of land compared to our former place, so we had to be choosy. What couldn’t we live without? Lavender and daylilies! We’re fortunate that there is a local daylily grower less than 10 miles away. Not long after our move, we compiled a list of specific varieties and off we went to that garden to shop! We came back home with a wide selection, including some long-time favorites and a couple of new varieties to fill out the growing season and display an assortment of pretty colors.
We saw very little growth and blooms last year, since the plants were only small clumps and needed to concentrate on building strong roots. But they have filled out since then and are thriving. We’re being rewarded with beautiful blooms like the one above. And now I don’t have to sneak into neighbors’ yards to take pictures of flowers!
