Lady Elizabeth Day Lily



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

We try to have one or two new things in our gardens every year. This year we added some new day lilies. The disadvantage of day lilies is that the blossoms last for one day. The advantage of this day lily, Lady Elizabeth, is that it is a re-bloomer, and we should enjoy these blossoms again in the fall.

What a beauty Elizabeth is! Seems like it is easier to linger in the yard in fall to enjoy the re-bloomers in the cool air!

I like that soft shade of peach. How nice that it may repeat bloom in the fall!

I didn't realize the lilies' bloom was so short-lived. Guess I'm not really observant, am I? I do love looking at them though.

This daylily gives you an extra treat and that's so nice. It's beautiful! I meant to say on the last picture, I bet you had a great Fourth in your town also.
