And so it begins . . .

Yep.  Daylily bloom time once again.  Rather, daylily bloom time FINALLY.  Lots of things are in bloom at the Bowes Motor Speedway Farmette right now and the green things are lush but nothing, no nothing, beats daylily bloom time.  srsly.

I'm only posting one here so as to not distract with other lovely daylily blooms as this one outshines all of the rest and will likely be moved to a showcase spot for 2013.  (Oh my, did I say 2013? Too soon, too soon.)

I bought this daylily fan from someone I 'friended' on flickr in one of the daylily groups and I'm sure I started a stampede.  He said it did not have a name and was a volunteer crossbred plant - not sure what its lineage is but just feast your eyes on this heavily veined beauty.  Colors are exactly what you see here and the veins are beautifully prominent.

No further comment required.  Behold.

Mine aren't even sending up stalks yet, just some leaves.

I candled the duck eggs last night and the veins on these leaves look *just* like the veins in the eggs with the healthy embryos. If your flower needs a name maybe it can be the duck embryo daylily.

Duck Embryo Daylily . . . Hmmm, intriguing.

Beautiful! Our Day Lillys are just starting to bud, and I am waiting not so patiently for blooms.
