Hello Daylily Friends,
liked, and I took the picture. I liked the darker, blue color, and also
the strength of the clump. In fact, during the 10 day trip I took over 1,300 pictures. It is difficult to delete the pictures that I don't particularly need, and I suppose that I will probably just keep them all. Another flower that we saw in the gardens that was likewise beautiful was the yellow Canna lilies. I took a picture of Diana and our Guide, Walter, while they admired this clump of flowers. I would add that in South Africa it was summer time, and the temperatures were usually around 85 degrees. I understand that a freeze is very, very rare, but that it can happen. So, the flowers are all really large, especially when watered.
Elephants as well, and I wish that I could have walked over and touched them, but of course this was out of he question. I particularly noticed the "Impala" because it is so difficult to see in the tall grass. Its colors blend so well, and of course it runs very fast. Can't show the pictures but we also saw Lions, a single Leopard, several Hippos, and a wide variety of birds.
I could write and write and write about our trip. Suffice it to say that the trip was the most exhilarating that I've ever experienced. Now that we're back home I've got to get the daylilies blooming in the Greenhouse.
More news soon.
