Today's picture/Hush Little Baby daylily


We planted three Hush Little Baby daylilies last September in anticipation of the babies to come, and they've just blossomed. We will keep one, and give the others to our children. Such a beautiful name for such a beautiful flower.

    1. It is a great name. I just happened upon it, and of course, had to plant some! They know how to cry - ha ha!

  3. Well, here I am, Nan! Thank you for nudging me back into blog life and what a lovely post to see on my first visit for months. I was inspired by your day lily posts to plant some in my garden several years ago and they bring such joyful colour to my days. I haven't seen this beautiful Hush Little Baby yet but I will try to hunt some down. I am going to be very busy for the next few days catching up on all the posts I've missed. I see a lot of gardening and baking ahead!

    1. Hooray! I'm really pleased. And I did get your email, too. I think daylilies are the perfect flower. Easy, no trouble, and the most beautiful colors! Plus, they spread so you can divide them and have more plants!
