Welcome back to this incredible, private daylily garden. Forty years in the making, this garden is only open to the public once a year, and I’m so glad the sweet lady who cultivates it allowed me to take photos so I could share it with you! If you missed Part 1, I’ll put a link to it at the end. Let’s have a look around.
This wise-looking fellow keeps watch over the beautiful garden.
This is one of the largest hydrangea bushes I’ve ever seen (center of photo). I wonder how old it is? Notice how the blue planter in the bottom, right corner has been elevated on an inverted flower pot to give it some height. Great idea!
I’ve planted “sedum” before, but never knew it could bloom. I obviously don’t have the green thumb this gardener has.
Your eye may be drawn to the brilliant burgundy daylilies, below, but don’t miss the huge vulture sculpture!
The garden has several beautiful and whimsical works of art by this artist.
I’m sorry I didn’t record the name of this amazing daylily that has a kaleidoscope effect.
…the last word, below, is “angels”.
In addition to daylilies, the garden has roses, hydrangea, dogwood, and iris like the ones below.
This lovely fence was made of driftwood retrieved from the nearby lake.
Thank you for joining me for Part 2 of this daylily garden walk-around! I hope you liked it, and maybe you picked up an idea you can use in your own garden. I certainly picked up several ideas. Now, it’s a matter of finding the time!
