D - Dazzling Delights

 


Daffodils, Original Poets

Daffodils, Tete-a-Tete

Daffodils, Ice Follies


Daffodils, Rip Van Winkle 
 

Daisy, African 
 
Not cold hardy here, so I don't bother with them anymore.

Daisy, Shasta "Angel"

This is the perfect Shasta daisy for me, it stays small!  The others took over the bed and I moved them to a bare triangular area behind some vegetable beds.  It's a great perennial flower and spreads, needing division every few years.  

Daisy, Tidy Tips 

The cutest little annual that grows easily from seed and self-seeds the next year.


Ditchlilies

The wild common orange daylily, much hated in some parts of the country where it can be invasive.  I actually bought mine mail order!. Just look at how beautiful it is!

Daylily, Wineberry Candy

The fancy hybrids that all began with the lowly ditchlily!  I don't care for lilies, but I love daylilies. 

Daylily, American Revolution

This one is a transplanted division from the front yard plant.  They need to be divided every few years.  You'll know when the number of flowers goes down.


E's coming up next! How Exciting!

  1. Ah, daffodils, simple but so pretty! And I love that they are one of the first to come out the snow. I love Spring!

    1. We don't get much snow when we do, but they do poke right up through and looks so pretty.

    1. What I like about daffodils is that they last so long. The first ones that open last nearly as long as the last. Weeks and weeks. I can't think of another bulb I have that does that. The grape hyacinths last, but they open new flowers along the same stem.

  3. I love the vibrant yellow of daffodil. Wrote a poem on them yesterday as a matter of fact.

    Your post is on "D" but your letter is "E."

    1. Thank you! I change it. No matter how many times I proof read and edit, something slips through, but that's a huge things to slip through! Yes, daffodils are such a great yellow.

    1. It is! They last so long. The Rip Van Winkle are still blooming, and the Original Poets will be flowering soon. They are a very late blooming kind.

  5. So pretty! To be invaded by wild orange daylillies wouldn't bother me in the least :-)

    1. I think they are a problem in some parts of the US. I planted mine where they can spread and no one will be bothered. I love them.

  6. Daffodils and daisies. And daylilies. What a Delightful combo. Daffodils are just starting to bloom now. I have several. Maybe 10 or more varieties of daylilies. All names lost to my lack of writing anything down. I've fallen in love with your Rip Van Winkle; I know I've seen it on your blog before. Ditch lilies are common here in roadside ditches. I don't have any.

  7. When the daffodils came out in England while on was on my 12 month exchange it was as if there was hope for the future. That one day the weather would become warm and the sun would shine. It was still a long wait.

  8. When we first bought our lake house I was so excited and I planted tons of daffodils and tulips in our front yard. We were only coming up on weekends back then but when we arrived on Friday evening after they had started to bloom the deer had come and munched every single one down to a little nub. I never saw a bloom. It was my last attempt at bulbs. Your flower pictures are beautiful!Weekends In Maine
