Seeing Red


We saw our first red day lily at our yellow house Sunday.


Miss Nola gave me more day lilies than I could count and I got all the colors mixed up so it was a surprise when this red one bloomed first.


You can read about Miss Nola's day lilies here.

We are wondering where the next red day lily will bloom as I planted them all over the property with the other four colors of day lilies she gave me. I am thrilled they bloomed this year as I did not think they would after being transplanted.


The hummingbirds are getting accustomed to us and I am attempting to photograph them which is not easy to do even with a better camera.

  8. Dear Olive,
    First of all, I hope that Joe gets good news at the doctors.
    .... and, your red day lillies are beautifulmas are your photographs of them
    I love hummingbirds. You are so lucky to have them in your garden. We don't have them over here. The first time that I saw them was when we were along the Appalachian Trail.They were drinking from a feeder while we were having breakfast. XXXX

  15. Beautiful red day lily. You did a great job of capturing the humming bird. They have been flitting around my feeder so fast I haven't been able to capture them.
    Praying for good news for Joe.

  19. Love the color of that day lily. I tried to get a shot of the hummer on our feeder and I waited and waited after he was constantly feeding. It never came back while I stood there with the camera. Very smart I tell ya.
