Lilies in the Front & Lilies in the Back....

On my morning walk with camera in hand of course,
I thought I would take a few pictures of my Lilies....
These are in the front yard....

I don't know the names of any of them.
There was a time in my life that "labeling" each and every
perennial in our garden was important to me.
Maybe it was because I was a "young" gardener
or maybe it was because we use to visit this amazing
Perennial Garden/Nursery when we lived in 
Indiana and the owner had every single plant
marked.  It was on her property and we watched
her business grow.  It was lovely!
I wonder if it's still there!
Do you see my sad, sorry Hydrangea?
I think it needs to be moved.
Never a bloom to be seen....

My new camera seems to capture color
All I do is point and shoot....

My husband has planted these daylilies in every nook and cranny
of our yard, and in case you didn't know
they multiply....
but you knew that didn't you!
He made the hummingbird....
poor thing his beak fell off.
Needs replacing!

Daylilies surround our Home....

We have a few ~fancy~ ones tucked in here and there....

Love these!

  Orange so bright!
Sully is that you?....

Now into the backyard....
Lovely Crimson color don't you think?

These are yet to bloom....
I think they're yellow,
maybe even double blooms, I can't remember!
That happens alot to me lately!

Just inside the gate....

alittle deeper in color....

~more hybrids~

Wonder when the will make their appearance?

Well, that's it for today!
We are getting all that hot & humid weather here....
Aren't we all though?
So I spent the day yesterday working on the pool.
Got it looking pretty good for it's age....
I think I will take a dip!

Hope you have a cool place to enjoy the hot weather!
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Cant go wrong with day lillys! !! Your yard looks great! Have a good day

  2. Your lillies are gorgeous. I love all the color. I only have orange and yellow but I love the deeper colors. May need to pick one up. I love how they divide and give you so many more plants.

  3. Your lilies are all so pretty and the hostas look very healthy too.
    I'd love to hop into your pool right about now. Looks very inviting and clean :).

  4. Your home is lovely and the gardens look fabulous. I bet you love day lily season as I do. Everything looks a little off when they are spent. You sure have a lot of hostas! A home with as much presence as yours needs a lot of plantings, I am certain. Keeps you busy!

  5. Love all your lilies and hostas! They just make a home so lovely!

  6. What beautiful lilies! Those burgandy ones are gorgeous. I can't seem to raise them. I think it might have something to do with the pocket gophers. wah. But I can look at yours and enjoy them. :-)

  7. You have beautiful Day lilies. I especially love the color in pic too.. sort of a cranberry color. Mine are all orange, and
    I really want to change (some) them out. When we bought them, they were supposed to be more than one color.. as it is now,
    I have 8.. ALL orange. We had issues with 2 hydrangeas. They just would not bloom (after the initial blooms they had
    from the nursery.) We had it looked at, and the "expert" informed us that the Blue spruce next to it, was pulling
    its nutrients. We ended up transplanting it, but it didn't make it. I see them everywhere on my evening stroll..... and
    I have hydrangea jealousy..... HA!

    Your pool looks very inviting. Especially today as its going to be 95 here in NKY!

  8. I love the colour of the day lily in the second photo, such a gorgeous red.

    I don't envy you your hot humid weather, but I wish it was a bit warmer over here in England at the moment. We've just had the longest day and it doesn't seem like Summer at all!

  9. Hi Lisa,
    I love your home and all the flowers. I just found your Blog and it is wonderful. I'm in Indiana and I have a Hydranga. When I bought it it was blue. The next year it was pink and only 3 blooms. The next year I have pink and 3 or 4 blooms. Each year I cut back the wood looking sticks. This year we had such a mild winter that before I knew it the sticks had leaves and right now I have probably 30 flowers all pink. I am amazed. Don't give up because I do not have a green thumb. As a matter of fact I love a nice yard but i want someone else to do it. I will be back to your site. Keep up the good work.


I would enjoy hearing from you!
