Daylily Garden Tour: Part 4

Welcome to the fourth and final part of our daylily garden tour.  This garden has been cultivated by one family for about forty years, and they recently were kind enough to open it to the public for one day.  Such gracious hosts, they even served lemonade and homemade cookies!  The endless flower beds, sculptures, garden art, and whimsical decor has been inspiring us all week, so let’s see what they have in store for us today.

This bronze sculpture of a girl with butterflies was, perhaps, the masterpiece of the garden.

Remember all the driftwood we saw in parts 1, 2, and 3 that they’ve used as fencing and stands for garden ornaments?  That driftwood came from the lake seen through the trees here:

The garden has many hydrangea bushes of various colors.  The one pictured below was both blue and lavender.



Then there was this hot pink hydrangea.

A very important visitor was doing a very important job.  I didn’t realize until I looked at the photo, later, that there was another insect besides the bee – do you see it?

Broken dishes used as garden ornaments.  These folks have thought of everything!

This was a really serene spot: a shady path, guarded by owls and glass mushrooms.

Do you remember the dead tree stump we saw in Part 1 that they were using as a trellis?  Here’s another idea for a dead tree:

That little cherub almost looks as if he’s thinking, “I sure wish my tree hadn’t died.”

  1. I enjoyed your photography of the beautiful gardens. And yes I did get some ideas, I only wish I had a lot to use them on. But everything is beautiful Thank you Dawn. I am so sorry that I have been MIA lately. I have been so distracted with life lately. I have missed visiting. Have a wonderful week…. Candy

  2. The first photograph at this site is of a bronze girl with butterflies. I’ve owned a resin-cast version that’s approximately 24″ tall. Unfortunately, it has now become broken beyond repair and I’m trying to locate an outlet to purchase a new one. Does anyone know where I can find another resin-cast version to buy? I did find the bronze version for sale but cannot afford the $3+k cost. Thanks very much to anyone that can point me in the right direction.

    1. Hello, Wayne. Thanks for reading and leaving your comment, I hope someone can help you who might read this in the future. There wasn’t any kind of sign near the statue that indicated the artist’s name, so I can’t help, but hope you find what you’re looking for.
      Dawn, We Call It Junkin
