This is the sunset I came home to a couple of weeks ago, right before it got warm and melted ... I hurried into the house to get my camera before the sun went all the way down.
It's snowing again tonite ... so I had some time to look through my seedling photos and pick some to post. These first three are seedlings that have been growing here for quite a few years. I moved them last Spring to their own spots in the regular daylily beds to evaluate them in hopes of registering them ... then we had a summer of drought, and they didn't grow as well as they had previous years so I couldn't gather accurate statistics ... so hopefully they will preform better this summer and I might just register them ..
The next few are more recent years seedlings that I find interesting .. this first one I will pull out of the seedling bed this summer and find it a spot in the garden for future registration. The cross is Frankie's Fantasy x Blueberry Sky - love the shape!
This one is a cross of Mystic Avalon x Davey Jones Locker - great colors:
This is a cross of Mystic Firebird X Platypus Pam ... I love the shape of this one too!
These are seedlings I purchased went I went to the "Northern Mecca" trip, to see daylilies in Ohio and Kentucky ... this first one is a Jamie Gossard seedling that I've made some crosses with:
The next two are Sandy Holmes seedlings ... I need to further evaluate this first one, but I find it very interesting:
This one I will definitely register eventually ... I love the different color (tomato soup?) and the form is great too!
I'll have to see what other pictures I can pull out in the coming weeks .... so we can all look at some flowers and dream of Spring!
