It’s the first official day of Summer. Happy Solstice!! And my garden is showing a good flush of summer flowers – my Solstice Daylilies and a few others. Daylilies have become another of my flower fetishes, so here are the first of about twenty different varieties that I have. In honor of summer I wanted to show what is blooming in my garden this Summer Solstice Day!
I think this one has the colors of the Summer Sun, don’t you? I love the vibrant color.
Another Sunny Daylily. This beauty is one of my largest flowered one at almost 8 inches across.
This beauty has a green throat and purplish burst . This is my favorite daylily.
I love this orange Daylily. See the bee on the flower.
This is a tiny flowered Daylily, but I just love the color combination of pale yellow and maroon.
Another yellow one. But this Daylily is slightly greenish.
This is another of my favorites with pink petals and a brilliant magenta throat and yellow eye.
This is bright magenta Daylily is one of my reds. Isn’t it pretty?
And lastly, my beautiful coppery red Daylily punctuates the Summer energy of my Solstice Daylilies.
Happy Solstice, Everyone! I hope that you have enjoyed my introduction to Summer with my favorite Summer flower. There are many more to come.
