Many of you have mentioned daylilies, so I thought of all of you on Friday.

Oh, dear! I don't know why it is sideways! 

We went to the Daylily Festival at an area farm on Friday.

First blooms of many more to see!


Isn't this lovely?

A fountain in the middle of the pond.

Wonderful gazebo!

There are many more pictures, and I will post them another day. 

Hopefully you will be able to continue following this blog.  With all the talk about Bloglovin', I'm just not sure what is going to happen.  It appears that I must have a Facebook account for that, and I will not be setting up one of those.

Thank you for reading.  I really appreciate your comments.


  1. What beautiful images. I love lilies. The tiger lilies grew all along the roadsides of our farm when I was a kid- xo Diana

  2. Our daylilies just started blooming too Nellie.

    I love when they bloom in masses. So dramatic! I only have a few. I'll be adding more though:)

    Thank you so much for sharing...

    P.S. I don't think you need to join Facebook to signup for Bloglovin. I think you can just use an email address. I'm not signing up for it but I know many others are. There are also a few other choices too.

    P.S P.S:) The Picnic Game round-up is posted. If you get a chance, drop by for some goodies!

  3. HAPPILY, my old way of seeing new posts, via my private blog (My Little Posse) is still working!

    I also joined Bloglivin', just in case.

    You don't have to be on Facebook, to join.

    Good luck to all of us!!!! With this latest *change.*


  4. Lovely daylillies. I love them planted in mass of colors. That's how I plant mine. They are one of my favourite flowers. My Stella Del Oro are in bloom but the rest are just getting their buds.

    I'm on Bloglovin and so are millions of people. I hope it's not a bad thing.

    Happy 4th of July

  5. my daylilies are all blooming now. except for the salem daylilies, they bloom later.

  6. I don't know what it means and I decided to wait and see what happened.
    Your pictures are fantastic. I love daylillies.They are such happy flowers,
    Have a great week!

  7. I have you on my sidebar, so I am still watching you...LOL.
    Love the lily patches! OMGosh! I have never seen that many in one place before! So cool. How would you like to dead head all of those? Not on a Monday, that's for sure.

  8. This place is known all over E TN for their daylilies and other events throughout the spring and summer. I have a couple of other friends who attended that festival, and they enjoyed seeing all the varieties as well. As for your other concern, I know NOTHING about blogging, but I can say with some assurance that Facebook is not a bad thing! It is a great way to keep in touch with folks who are a LONG way from you, and folks whom you haven't seen in a very long time. Have a wonderful first of July!

  9. These are gorgeous!

    I'm not moving, or jumping through any hoops for blogger. As long as I can read from my dashboard, I'll be here!

  10. Nellie, I love those pretty. I like the dark red ones a lot. Hope your week is great. I am going to ask my daughter about bloglovin...xoxo,Susie

  11. Hi Nellie...Wow, that looked like a super festival. So glad you got to go. Thanks for all the great photos. Susan

  12. Hi Nellie, We are back after 2 weeks off. Hope you have had a couple of great weeks. I did post a blog today.

    Did you go to Oakes Daylily Festival? We almost went --but couldn't work it out... We order all of our daylilies from them --and they are AWESOME.. We probably have at least 40 of their daylilies in our yard..


  13. Lovely post Nellie. Your photos are beautiful. Hope it's not too hot over there.

  14. SO wish I were there. Is that where you are or where *I* am?

  15. Hi, Nellie. :) Lovely photos!

    I've never joined Facebook but signed up with Bloglovin. I have it set up so that the new blog posts of the blogs I follow are emailed to me in a big list, twice daily. It works. I liked Google Reader sooooo much more, but what can you do.

    Have a good week, ♥


    (And I've fallen behind with comments--I'll add one to another post of yours in a minute. 'Catching up tonight. xox♥)

  16. Beautiful flowers. I don't have a facebook account either, but you can still have Bloglovin. Now my google reader is still working! Strange, but I noticed that less people are checking my latest post. I think it has to do with the system change. I'm not sure. But my google reader is still working.
