Hemerocallis ‘Pardon Me’ given to me by Frances of Fairegarden is the same as the mislabled daylily I have been trying to ID in a previous post.  The color difference is due to photos being made with different cameras with one in the sun and one in the shade. What do you think? 

Update: Finally my plant and the gift plant bloomed at the same time and they are exactly the same. Thanks, Frances.

Mother Nature’s Garden Daylilies

While in Auburn, Alabama for a wedding this weekend we visited 


the Jule Collins Smith Art Museum


which also had a nice garden


where hydrangeas were blooming.


There were also huge rosemary shrubs,


crepe myrtles flanking the  entrance,


and a nice paved walking trail around the lake.

Our visit to the Birmingham Botanical Garden on the way home will follow later.

    It was fun walking around the lake, Linda. If I had a beautiful place such as this, I might be more inclined to walk more. I have a beautiful area but it is not free of questionable doggies.

    Love the red daylily. {:>) Nice photos as well. The benches with rosemary nearby would make a great place to take a nap. Relax with a fragrance.

  8. I really enjoyed your fabulous show, MN! You have an amazing collection of lilies…absolutely lovely!

    Family, art, and flowers! Botti a few days ago. What could be better? Life is good.

    Donna, Your collection of daylilies is fabulous… We have several also but most have not bloomed yet. Our lilies are putting on a show right now though. And the roses are still fab.

    Your trip to ‘Bama and the art museum must have been wonderful also. Great photos.

    Hope you are having a great day.

  13. Boy, everything about this place is pleasant and the flowers are very nice too.

    I made a daylily walk with my collection of daylilies and it seems too close. The walk can’t be mowed without knocking off buds. Sigh!

    Wow, you are certainly into day lilies. I think of them as very ‘out there’, with their tongues hanging out, ready to brush their pollen onto any passing human or insect. I do love their crinkly petals and lovely colours. And thank you, MN, for the tour around the art museum garden. I loved this garden. It’s very sleek, simple and modern, and goes with the building. Looking forward to ‘visiting’ Birmingham Botanical Garden soon. Cheers, catmint
