Full of Daylilies

I thought that when I posted the last picture of these that my bed was pretty full. Apparently, my mind is a bit too small for the daylilies because they just exploded. It was nearly twice as full of blooms the other day. I’m pretty sure this is the most I’ve ever had these bloom and I’ve had this bed for nearly 14 years. Because they only stay open for a day, hence the name, I think I’m getting close to these being done. I may have a few of other colors start to come up as they bloom at a different time, but this mass of color is nearly done for the season.

My old fashioned daylilies are in full bloom right now. I have a tiered bed that is literally exploding with them (as in it is so full they are starting to try and find homes outside of that bed).

Dwarf Day Lilies

I have known that these were a type of lily, but I was never 100% certain what type. When looking to try and find out, I discovered that the tiny little sampling of colors that I have is NOTHING in comparison to what is available. Now, I want a whole lot more than I have now. They are so pretty. Lilies in general come in a close second to irises as one of my favorite flowers. I have tons of day lilies (full size), a few dwarfs and 3 different asiatic lilies. It took me forever to have and keep the asiatics because either the deer or the rabbits around here always ate them to the ground before they could grow. With the recent rash of construction, the deer have kind of become non-existent, but we still have tons of rabbits, so I’m thinking it was the deer.

Ready Or Not, Here I Go

I took the first terrifying step and sent of my initial contact to an editor. I’m not even 100% that this will be the editor I end up using, though from the research I’ve done it is a pretty good chance, but I took that step. It was huge and nerve wracking, but I did it. Now I’m back to sit and wait mode. Can I vomit now?

When Cold Is Too Cold

When I offered to make recital bouquets for BG and her dance friend, I didn’t think twice about it and wasn’t even remotely worried about being able to pull them off. My only worry was going to be finding flowers in the colors that worked as I always try to coordinate with the costume colors. Since this year’s costumes were teal/black, amethyst/gold, and rosy pink, I knew it was going to be a challenge. I had no clue color wasn’t going to be my biggest problem.

Bragging Rights

Today is one of those bittersweet moments of being a parent. A moment when you see your child in the middle of a transition from one part of their life to the next. Today, I watched BG graduate from 8th grade and I’m just overflowing with emotions. Mostly pride, because my girl is just amazing and I got to see proof that I’m not the only one that thinks so.

Overwhelmed

So, I started my research for an editor and a cover designer. Then I just kind of hit this wall. The sheer volume of different types of editors and pricing and the lists of different steps you need to take with each different one and just… everything. It sent me into kind of a tailspin. It was so overwhelming I just had to step away.
