Hi all!  And how was everyone’s weekend?  Mine was absolutely fabulous.  Had a long four-day weekend that I put to good use by working in the garden like crazy, hung out with part of the gang on Sunday, and had another part of the gang over on Monday for dinner, drinks, and fireworks watching.  Was tough hearing that alarm ringing by my head this morning…

While I was working like crazy in the garden I noticed one of my Black-Eyed Stella daylilies had buds that looked darker than normal.  I passed it off to the weird weather we’ve been having.  Well, the next day two of the buds had opened and I saw that, no, the dark buds were not due to weird weather.  They were due to the fact that instead of looking like this when they opened:

Black-Eyed Stella Daylily

they looked like this:

Is that beautiful or what???  Definitely not complaining that it’s not Black-Eyed but it was just very unexpected.  So my mission now is to figure out who she is.  Thankfully I remember the nursery I bought that group of bulbs from so I’ll just peruse their catalog to find the match.  Or if any of you out there know, fill me in on the secret!  She’s in a border of Black-Eyeds, so she’ll look a bit out of place once they all start reblooming.  How cool is it though that the colors are the same, just reversed.  Very neat.  But I think I’ll leave her there till cooler weather rolls around.  That’ll give me plenty of time to figure out where to plant her.
 
I took a ton of pics of her and they all turned out so well I had a really hard time narrowing down which ones to post.  Obviously I didn’t do a very good job cause there are lots of pics for you to look at.

 Oh good Lord.  I have GOT to get a newer, faster computer if I’m gonna keep uploading this many pics.  This is taking forever…

I ended up deleting alot of the pics cause they were just way too much alike.  I still really do need to get a faster computer though.  Actually I’m jonesing for a laptop so I can sit outside while working on this.  That would be great.

Hey, I’m trying to figure out the best way to link my posts to my plant descriptions pages.  So there’s prob gonna be a few changes here and there while I figure that out.  Let me know if you’re having problems finding anything.

I’m linking up this week with:

Good Life Wednesdays at A Beach Cottage – Life by the Sea

and Cottage Flora Thursday #26 at Fishtail Cottage

and Fertilizer Friday / Flaunt Your Flowers at Tootsie Time

Y’all need to check out Good Life Wednesdays, Cottage Flora Thursdays, and Fertilizer Friday …they’ve got links to a ton of really cool blogs.  I’m so digging them every week.  Thanks to Sarah, Tracie, and Glenda for hosting them!

Well, that’s all for now.  Cheers to an awesome rest of the day!
