Today was another hot and humid day with plenty of sunshine that made it feel even hotter.



But that did not deter my friends and I from visiting a local daylily garden that belongs to some folks that live nearby.

We had visited there two years ago (see daylily extravaganza post) and wanted to return to enjoy the beauty of their gardens as well as to buy more of their beautiful lilies.  Web lilys 078

Norma and her husband have been growing these for years and their property is filled with fields of daylilies.

Many they bought but some they have pollinated themselves to create some unique flowers.

 I was overwhelmed by the colors and beauty to spite the overwhelming heat we endured to see them.

It was a fun day~ hot temperatures and all!


~”Then followed that beautiful season… Summer….
Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light; and the landscape
Lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood.”
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
