Incredible Beauty

Blackberry Candy is in its second year with us.  This is the first year that we have seen flowers.  I am easily taken in by the pie crust edge.  The sharp contrast in the vivid colors is absolutely captivating.  The metallic green object is a fly.

Lime Frost is also producing its first flowers here.  In addition to the ruffled edge, this one is sweetly scented.  That is a very clear white.  These pictures were taken early this morning ahead of the hard rain.  This flower was only going to last for one day under the best of conditions but the pelting rain ended it early.

Prairie Blue Eyes has been here for several years.  It is our tallest daylily and the flowers are huge.

Blueberry Candy has also been here for quite a while.  Scented, sharp color contrast and ruffled edges make this a real winner.

Destined To See is the first daylily purchased here.  The tricolor crinkled edge makes this one special as does the scent.

Spiritual Corridor would have been the first flower pictured here but a deer came inside of the stone square and ate all of the mature buds.  Wire cages may come between me and my lilies next year.  All of that wire will look offensive but what is the other choice?
