    It looks like this guy's entire backyard is planted with daylilies. My favorites are the Wall of Fire clump and Mint Octopus. Where is this garden? My Blissful Blackberry Pie never looked like his - the sepals were always lighter than the bloom, which was always splotchy. I sold it on the Lily Auction. Woe to those cursed with heavy morning dew like me.

    Mint Octopus is my pick, too. although Wall of Fire and that amazing field of dayllies in the yard are terrific.

    Humm on Blissful Blackberry Pie. It's on my short list. May have to rethink it. But a very tempting picture nonetheless Dean....Talk about being knee deep in daylilies. The little gathering of potted plants is very nice too. In particular that one small round pot that remains empty in the grouping reminds me that sometimes less is more.....Where is this garden located btw?.........Maryl

    well Frog's Eye gets my vote over the other green one. ha! :) I should have mentioned, Region 11 convention was in St. Louis last weekend. so this garden was in St. Louis in an historic neighborhood, pasedena hills or something like that...

    A treat! I would hate to have to lug around those big clay pots. Blond on the Inside is appealing. And yes, after seeing many wretched photos of a deformed Blissful Blackberry Pie, it is interesting to see what it is supposed to look like. A great setting for the daylilies--a slight slope. A bit surprised, though, that there was not some inclusion of other plants (for accent or counterpoint) in all that area.
