Daylilies by the Railing

I delight.....
in my day lilies......
growing up against.......
a white porch railing!
........just the effect I was going for.
I can see them as we eat dinner on the sun porch.  Or, as I sit on the back porch with my morning coffee.

Wishing each of you a blessed week!

Very pretty! I love mine too and they were transplanted from my G-Mom-B's yard-enjoy:@)

So lovely... don't you just love it when things turn out that way you planned?

The daylily is one of my favourite plants. I probably have about 12 different varieties (so far!) in my yard.

Your day lilies are so pretty!!! They do look lovely by your porch railing.

Long may they bloom! Mine bloom for about three weeks and then the last one leaves toward the end of July and I miss them all through August. They may be nothing but "ditch" lilies, though they spread a lot of cheer. There's just something about that shade of orange.

Your Day lilies are beautiful and yes, they look wonderful up against the railing.
Those are exactly the color of mine, they should be blooming here in just a few weeks time.
Hugs, cindy

I absolutely love them.

I have some daylilies that traveled from my grandmother's house to my mother's TWO homes and then to my first home and finally to this one.

They survived ever move.
They did not survive the drought, though. I tried and tried with them this year, but I got two blooms only.

Maybe next year.

That's "every" move. I promise that I'm not so hick that I say "ever move".

The lilies are striking against that white railing. I know you enjoy watching them sway in the breeze. The old fashioned orange ones bring back fond memories from childhood for me.

I love those wonderful orange daylilies...that is SUMMER to me!

Thanks for the groundhog advice ... I don't think the dog poo will work, either. But shooting them? I'm afraid that's not an option in this area -- I'd have the cops before I'd pulled the trigger.

Besides ... I've never shot a gun in my life!

I am hoping to come to some workable solution with these guys. They are amazing diggers -- and we just had the retaining wall shored up by a mason 2 months ago!

We had a groundhog here 2 years ago, but luckily he enjoyed playing in traffic .... he was not a problem for long.
