Some of my flowers

There is enough political blogging for the moment. I thought I would retreat to a subject I know well. My flowers. Most of these pictures are of dayliles that I have bred and grown from tiny little shiny black seed and then waiting the two or three (or sometimes four) years it takes to bloom from planting. You never know what you are going to get. My method is just to cross the ones with colors I love with shapes, textures and other form traits that I like to hopefully produce an offsping wiht all of those qualities. I'm not a professional breeder. I've no formal training other than reading up on the subject.

Some of the flowers are not mine but I used them in the creation of my babies. In the first picture, there are a few lilies other than day lilies - a tigrinum and an oriental. My favorites are daylilies but I love ALL lilies.
