Great Red Dragon Daylily.
Black-eyed Susan Daylily.
Wineberry Candy Daylily, a gift from my friend, Bob.

On a pass through the vegetable garden, a bonus was the discovery of the first shelling peas.
I added the peas to the cold pasta salad waiting in the fridge for supper.
Time to make a run to deliver peas to my mother. She loves ’em.
