Dark Eyed Daylilies.

  I think I first fell in love with dark eyed daylilies the first time I saw Jeff Salter's Moonlit Masquerade.  I still enjoy seeing it as it is always an early season bloomer.  Sometime later I saw the daylily Dan Trimmer named for his wife, Jane Trimmer and was really blown away by that.  Over time there has always seemed to be newer dark eyed daylilies that have caught my attention.  Here's a few I have seen posted recently:

Well, I hope you enjoyed that brief segment.  The Myrtle Beach, South Carolina daylily convention is going on this weekend and I hope you all are having fun.  Wish I could be there, but work keeps me busy.  Starting to see some bloom, so it won't be long before my garden starts up again.  Hope you are all well.
