Daylilies 2013

I started this new daylily garden in the late summer and fall of 2011.  I knew it would take a few years for it to mature. We had some late freezes and icing last year and this year, too,  which took its toll.  But my champions pulled through;  I should have never doubted them.  They look healthy and are much bigger now.  Most are producing scapes and about 6 are blooming at the moment. It's an exciting time for me.  After the big move, I wasn't sure if I would have the strength and energy to start another garden.  But here I am, gardening away; although it is much more difficult than it was when I was in my '40s.
I am going to chronicle their growth during this blooming season each week.

Here is week one as of July 4th 2013.

Even the peonies bordering one edge looked great this year.  I'm a happy girl
