Bowl of daylilies - August 4

These daylilies are from a "pink collection" I bought from White Flower Farm four years ago. As always, you may click on the picture for a closer view.


  1. I discovered your blog Sunday.
    Whenever I would put daylilies in a vase they would drip on my tablecloth. I have never seen them displayed like this. I like it. Are they just laying in water or are they fastened to something. I am going to do this.
    Thank you.
    Enjoying your sharing and copied your zuchinni cake recipe.

  2. Thanks for coming by Ernestine. I've had the same problem with bringing the daylilies in, though someone did comment that she pulls out what she called the "thingy bobbers" :<) when she brings them inside, and has no problem with stains. Now, I haven't checked with her but I'd guess she means the middle strands where the pollen is. If you try this, let me know! Mine are outside on the patio where I can see them right out the kitchen window. They are right in the water. Thank you for your interest. If you make the cake, let me know how it turned out, okay?


Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!

Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
