Feverish Gardening

I don’t recall it being this hot, so hot I am not comfortable in the garden.  I love the sun and the heat, but this is a bit feverish.  The blooms are of course better in the morning hours.   I do have periods of shade in the garden, and those daylilies that get some of the shade are loving it.    Me too!    If I am going to be in the garden, I just have to move with the shade.    A few of my hotter blooms.

Primal Scream



A great display by Ruby  Spider, and she does get some shade during the day.

img_2063Prediction.   I have it in my garden and across the street in the field.  It seems to thrive in the hot all day sun of the field. This is from my yard. The bloom is nice, but there is a higher bud count with Prediction in the full sun.


Carnival in Brazil.  This one just started to bloom as it is a later blooming daylily.  This even seems a bit early for it.  Guess the fever hot and humidity has brought on earlier blooming on many of the daylilies.


Bluegrass Music,  maybe not a feverish color, but certainly a favorite of mine.


Canadian Blues  , I wonder if it is cooler in Canada?


Area 51,  this one is from a Canadian Grower.  Morry.  Avalonia Daylilies.


Another Canadian Grown daylily,  Maple Leaf Forever


Fun fish don’t seem to mind the heat.


Wayne’s World, a Hanson.  I wonder if it is cooler in Wayne’s World.

Two Sues,  another Hanson.



I will now attempt to go back outside for a bit.  I have my ice water, and sunscreen with me.    How about a nice soft daylily pillow to lay your head on !  That looks like a cure for this feverish gardening.


Happy Hot Gardening!

    It is dreadfully hot up here in Canada as well! Just suffocating – my cats are suffering poor things. How is Bowie handling the heat? What marvellous photos! My daylilies have barely started, and I can only tolerate to dash outside, water some things and go back inside – drenched! Again – gorgeous photos!

    Totally beautiful photos! Your daylilies are obviously not minding the weather. It would be very difficult to choose a favourite.

    Waynes’ World? I have never purchased a fancy cultivar of daylily, but that name is too funny to pass up. I am a sucker for names. I have been searching for the bearded iris known as ‘San Jose’ for years. It probably is not even very pretty.
