The first daylily to bloom this season is a new one to my garden.
‘Nutmeg Spice’ has a unique combination of apricot wash petals and a mauve eye
which really pops with the bright yellow throat and matching pollen.
The deer have noticed the daylilies, also.
I have scared one away twice today all ready.
My four-legged friends must smell the irresistible, juicy aroma of these succulent blooms.
I may have to sleep outside during June!
I have always dreamed of having a farm, so I love visiting them.
I envy the space and the history that goes along with a family farm.
Jimmy’s family has been on this farm for generations.
Joyce and Jimmy now grow hay and daylilies and keep a number of animals.
I love visiting anytime, but June is the most beautiful month for daylilies.
They have over 300 varieties. They no longer sell them. They are trying to get their numbers down to a manageable amount.
If you have daylilies, you know that many need dividing to keep blooming. I can’t imagine the work involved in keeping this many.
I walked through rainbows of color last week. Here are just a few of the flowers.
I must include some of the animals. Their horses were running too fast for photos because they were being chased by Tank, the donkey who likes to bite their backsides.
I did get to pet the goats.
I love chicken noises. These are young ones.
This little rooster was trying to crow. No noise came out. It was so cute!
FLOWER wants a FARM!
