Digging me some Daylilies

So those of you who showed up today for a nice family update are out of luck for now. .
Though I have plenty of new photos and news to share. .

This post will be boring for most of you. .
I had ordered a reblooming daylily collection on sale a few months back. .
And this week I received the box in the mail. .

I have decided that, while daylilies don't hold up well in a bouquet. .they are stunning in my garden. .And I LOVE them!! I knew that I would never remember their names when they started to bloom. .
So I google imaged photos for the varieties I planted. .and then added them with the name and location of where I planted them.
Lucky for us. .
We got a nice shower last night and cool temperatures today to get them adapted in well!!

So here goes!
The first four went into the south flower bed. .well. .it's a bed. .mulched in. .but it doesn't actually have ANY flowers growing there. .
Hopefully the addition of the new daylily plants will fix that!! And make a stunning little border in the spot I planted them at.

Starting at the east side of the bed and moving to the west I planted one tuber of each of the following daylilies. .
Eggplant Explosion
Passion for Red
and finally. .
Mighty Chestnut!

The last four were planted into the Memory Garden. .
nearest to the south sidewalk is
Daring Deception. .
And a few feet to the north is
Exotic Candy
Then about 10 feet to the north of that near my little rock bench. .

On the south side of the rock bench is
midnight raider daylily
and on the north side is
Ruffled pastel cheers. .

These last four will also be readily visible as we walk the sidewalks. .
Hope my flowers are as pretty as the ones I found online!!

We are enjoying a beautiful fall-like day here. .
Hope you are too!
