As mentioned in previous entries, these are all "old" photos from earlier in the summer. There are a few daylilies blooming here and there around the garden, and some have been reblooming, but our daylily season has definitely peaked. May and June are our best daylily months, I think.
The best thing about taking so many photos is that I can reminisce about those weeks of peak bloom any time of year. I actually did spend some happy hours looking through my old daylily photos, last winter. (Ah, winter, when you've forgotten exactly how hot and humid July can be and are still able to look at garden photos from previous years and promise yourself that you'll actually stay on top of the weeding, next summer!)

I'm starting with two of our new, named (registered) varieties-- new to the garden, blooming here for the first time.
This is one of those dark, dramatic daylilies that I just love. This variety is not reblooming, but it did pretty well for us, considering this was its first year. I think that of the dark varieties, this was the best-performing of our new, named daylilies. The others were pretty, but didn't have nearly as many flowers. Notice the purple-splotched buds.
Now, this one does rebloom, and I think it's been a very good bloomer (and rebloomer) for us, so far. The very pale yellow is great, too. I can't think of a color this flower wouldn't complement.
Now, on to the No-Names (or no names that I know). ;o) Aw, don't worry, mystery flowers, we love you just as much! To be honest, my favorites (at the moment) are all no-names.
There was some type of skipper butterfly on this daylily. It must've been comfortable, because it didn't budge, despite the intrusion of the camera's spying lens.
There are still plenty of photos to sort through and edit, so there are more to come!
