Garden Surprise

Imagine my surprise this morning when I went out to my patio and found a Day Lily in bloom! It has 2 other buds on it as well. I did not realize that Day Lillies bloomed in the fall, but I do not recall this one blooming in the spring or the summer. It was a nice surprise. I need to go check some others and see if they have thrown buds as well.

this is a fabulous flower and very different from my daylilies! Of course, most of mine this summer were midnight snacks for the deer. Grrrr.....
Anyway, you don't have fall where you are.

We are already into winter. Brrrrrr. Glad I'm off to Houston for a few days.

Call me when you get here for T-giving.

I used to have a lot of day,lilies in my former home and now just have a few. I've never seen that variety. It's a beauty!

This is a Peruvian lily, I think, a type of outdoor amaryllis. I planted a bulb last spring but it got leaves and no flowers, maybe next summer! Carolyn in Alberta
