Daylily Days (Daze)

I can't believe I haven't updated in so long. OK, yes, I can believe it. Confession:  I am intimidated by other garden blogs. They're so informative and authoritative and proper, and mine is so...well, just me. I'm afraid I'm doing it wrong! I've decided just to continue to be me though and try not to worry about it.

So, here I am! I have been gardening all this time! Planting new roses, planting vegetables, weeding, weeding, weeding. I spend a lot of time and energy (mental energy, at least) working on having clear water in big pond. It's my dream of dreams! I'll do a pond post soon.

Today, it's daylilies. Until they all started blooming, I didn't realize how many daylilies I've planted in the past few years. Only about half of them are labeled. Part of me is mad at myself about that. The other part of me wishes I could do away with all the label worry and just enjoy their beauty. Anyway, now that they're blooming, I have a better idea of where they should really be planted. You know what that means! I've been moving daylilies. Still have more I want to move.

Thanks so much, everyone! I got my love for daylilies from my grandmother. And they're so easy!
