Daylilies for Macro Saturday

My Daylilies are beginning to bloom.  I have to confess that I do not know the names of many of them.   I either picked them up from a plant sale or were given to me by friends that had no idea of the name either.  But,  I do love them.  They are so maintenance free and do not care that they are growing in the sandy soil.  The clump gets bigger each year.   If I want to divide them up it is easy to do.   This one is a burgundy colour and not as big as the large yellow below.

This large yellow is school bus yellow and is at least 5 inches across.  I will have more to show you in the next few weeks.  I may even know their names.    Have a great weekend.   See more macro photographs at flowers-macrophotography HERE.     Valerie

Lillies seem to be the flower of the day. They are both lovely, but I prefer the second.

I love the hemerocalis lily and once you've bought a few you can divide them up over the years to have many more across the garden. I've bought quite a few different coloured ones but the most reliable one to bloom for me is Pink Damask. Do you have that one?

That first one would just fit in with my colour scheme perfectly.
