I have to try and capture the photos early in the day if I can, because the weather has been so brutally hot they are not their best when I get home from work.
'Mauna Loa'. I thought it would be a bit brighter, but I still like it.
' Big Snowbird'
This is a 'Nosferatu' Daylily.
I love the name, but its not scary at all. It's darker than the photo looks. One of the petals kinda hooks up like a vampire's turned up cowl on a cape...maybe? I wonder where the name came from? The plant is large, with lots of buds coming. I like it, especially because of its name. I think I might move it over near the 'Night Coming' Daylily. I bet they would be great buddies color and name-wise.
The fresh 'Nosferatu' flower is not scary.. what IS scary is what the bloom looks like the next morning...like its life's blood had been sucked out.
Speaking of scary...
