Daylilies and Weeds!

Trying to stay on top of the weeds in the daylily field. Eel grass mulch has offered an excellent option, aside from the extra mosquitoes it brings.
The daylilies are just now coming into bloom. Lots of anticipation awaiting the new daylily seedlings.

Fields Of Dreams


Thousands of daylily seeds are ready for planting. Hybridizing efforts in 2010 were intense. We made many crosses with choice registered daylilies and selected seedlings. We are just beginning our daylily farm. There are fields of corn on the farm presently which will gradually be replaced with fields of registered daylilies and daylily seedlings. So much to anticipate for future seasons with fields full of beautiful daylilies. We love gardening in Nova Scotia:)!

Some of my most favorite daylilies are cream colored with blue eyes. I absolutely love the multidimensional blues and purples in the eye of this beautiful daylily.

Last year's daylily blooms


Looking forward to July with great anticipation.

Our daylilies don't usually start blooming until the second week in July.

This pair were wonderful planted next to each other, and put on a very pretty display.

still dreaming



In 2009 I dug up all of my daylilies from my property in town and moved them to an absolutely beautiful place along the northern coast of Nova Scotia. Amazingly, they have survived the icy cold winter winds off the Northumberland Straight. Those daylilies that I had protected in previous winters were left to fend for themselves, and they didn't let me down. We are looking forward to a glorious summer in the daylily field.
