Red Daylily

In the beginning I thought there were two colors of and yellow. 
There are thousands of varieties. This one has a velvety sheen.

Dear Mother Nature,
(That was fun typing that - a letter to 'Mother Nature' - I have always wanted to do that.)

I usually read bloggers' side bars first, but your list of gardens jerked my eye down that far. I couldn't believe how much we have in common as I read that list, and your book list. Next some of your posts. Then I began to wonder where you are located so checked your 'about me': Tennessee! I was born and reared in west Tennessee.

Congratulations on your long marriage! We are older than you so are ten years further along. It is refreshing to meet other people who have had long marriages. What a blessing.

How fortunate, too, that you live where the Summer Tanager can sing to you. It must be a wonderful environment where you garden.
Yes, the Hemerocallis plants now come in a rainbow of colors and new fancy varieties. What a long way they have come from my grandmother's orange wildings. I wonder if your 'Mary Todd' was named for Mary Todd Lincoln. She is the only Mary Todd I know of. Her childhood home is here in Lexington, KY.

Your garden surly must be beautiful right now with all of the different colors in bloom. Thank you for showing us.

I have visited some of the gardens in your list, and treasure some of the books in your other list.

I found you on Blotanical and came over to read awhile. Welcome, again!
