Red Oak House Garden notes no. 22 Showstoppers

Gavin Petit Daylily

Gavin Petit Daylily opened this morning and it is, indeed, a showstopper.  Out loud I say "Wow!" each time I first see it.

Others are reaching their peak bloom too.  Worthy of sharing.

Siloam Baby Doll Daylily

Prairie Blue Eyes Daylily (I'm a sucker for plants with prairie names)

Itsy Bitsy Spider Daylily

Coyote Moon Daylily

Tijuana Daylily

Great Red Dragon Daylily

Red Volunteer Daylily

Sunshine and Lollipops Daylily
On a pass through the vegetable garden, a bonus was the discovery of the first shelling peas.

I added the peas to the cold pasta salad waiting in the fridge for supper.

Time to make a run to deliver peas to my Mother.  She loves 'em.
