This week’s bouquet was inspired by the abundance of ditch daylilies growing in the back of my yard. I started with just a few. I can’t even remember where I got them from or who gave them to me. They multiple every year despite my attempts to get rid of them. Last summer, the deer ate all the buds, and left just a mass of green leaves. This year, the deer problem has been solved and the result is an abundance of orange blooms.
I call them ditch daylilies because you often see them growing along country road sides. They are very prolific, and they can and will grow anywhere. For a wild flower, they certainly are beautiful with lovely shades of vibrant orange.
I paired them with the volunteer dill that pops up every year in the garden from seeds dropped the year before.
Dill is my favorite of all the herbs. It has a wonderful smell, taste, and is exquisitely beautiful.
Anyways, orange daylilies and dill make a beautiful summer combination.
Two free spirits growing side by side in the garden . . . such a lovely couple.
