  9. Gorgeous! I separated my native daylilies from the hybrids a couple of years back and moved them all to one area. It is a blaze of orange right now, and I’m loving it.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Judy! The former owner lined one side of the driveway with them and they have spread and are definitely blazing away right now. 🙂

    Yellow, orange, and purple are some of our most abundant autumn colors, and yet this is clearly a summer bouquet. It’s truly wonderful. If it were here, I’d do little more but sit around and admire it for a good while.

  11. Oh, they are beautiful Eliza. They would open a heart in an instant, unconditionally. Thank you for sharing 😀❤️🙏🏽

  12. I enjoy all of your pictures-but this one screams out summer! Beautiful.

    So vibrant and perfect. The long leaves really add to your bouquet. (What are the lilacy ones).

    This is a lovely arrangement, Eliza. I know they’re spring/summer flowers, but gee, the colors really have me looking forward to Fall!

  24. Tina says:

    Nice, bright summer colors! Very cheerful capture, Eliza!

  25. Adele Brand says:

    Such a full feast of colour!

  26. I’ve been tempted to plunk a daylily or two in a flower arrangement but I’ve yet to try that. Yours looks fantastic! Daylily production is way down here this here but then they seem to be thirsty plants and I can’t deliver there ;(

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Though considered drought tolerant, there is a limit to that, I surmise. I don’t mind that daylily blooms must be plucked out of an arrangement the next day. If the stem has multiple buds, more arrive and it is only a matter of snapping the old off. (Similar to bearded iris, which do last a few days at least.) I love the look of them so they get used often.

  27. Beautiful array and display!

  28. Murtagh's Meadow says:

    What a lovely combination Eliza

  29. Jewels says:

    So delightful and cheery, Eliza! 🧡

  30. As always you have put together a lovely collection of colors and shapes, Eliza. You are an arrangement artist of the first order. 🙂

  31. Stunning collection of beautiful colors and flowers!🙂

  32. Cathy says:

    Gorgeous photo. This would make the perfect birthday card. 😃

  33. Beautiful photo, beautiful colors!!

  34. Pepper says:

    This one is super gorgeous. Love the variety of colors and sizes of blooms. 😊☀️

  35. pbmgarden says:

    I feel I could dive right into this lovely arrangement. So fresh and colorful and inviting.

  36. I think the verdict is unanimous, Eliza: Looking at your beautiful bouquet with its strong colors brought cheer to all of us.

  37. Thant is gorgeous Eliza … great arrangement and shot!

  38. I looked online to see if a daylily might have gotten its name from the fact that each flower lasts only a day. The first site I looked at said that that’s the case.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Yes, it is true. Luckily, there are a series of buds that come along every day or so, so the plant is in bloom for 2-3 weeks. There are also early, mid-and late-season varieties, so a garden can have daylilies for a couple months.

  39. What a gorgeous summer bouquet … and photo too!
