From My Archives: Strawberry Candy Day Lily



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it. Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

One nice thing about photos is that they can bring summer and sunshine even into the dreariest of winter days. Strawberry Candy is a re-blooming daylily that we've enjoyed for several years now. It looks good even in January.

I could use a little summer today. It is now only 11 degrees this morning. I'm waiting for the sun to come up before walking today when it warms up a bit.

You must be way ahead of us in temperature or this might be last year. I like it and have one but it is called some name including "peach."

Nice shot George.

Not sure you are even aware of some of the things I have done, but if you take the time to go to

That color makes it look tangy and sweet. Hmmm... I wonder if it tastes as good as it looks. Heh, heh.

Now that is a yummy looking Lily. Love the center. I am sure you do enjoy them. And now I do too. MB

George I was just thinking today how brown and bleak it looked outside. It didn't help that the skies were gray and overcast.
You are so right. Looking back to brighter days certainly helps with the winder doldrums.
These daylilies are gorgeous!
