You couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day to host an open garden than last Saturday. Of course, the garden itself was perfect, so the weather was just an added bonus. Because it's the internet, I'm just going to call it F's garden...but what a garden it is! Come along with me as we see a home garden with over 1000 AHS registered daylilies on display.
As I walked along the sidewalk, following the line of parked cars, I saw the garden ahead. The Japanese Maple surrounded by daylilies was just a taste of what was waiting to be discovered.
Most of the garden is behind the home and here's what I saw walking down the driveway, approaching the garden.
While I took hundreds of daylily photos, there was so much more to this garden than just daylilies. Water features, whimsy, sun loving and shade preferring perennials all joined in the show.
There were delights for the eye everywhere.
Tucked among the daylilies, just waiting to be found, were these tiny sedums.
You knew this garden would have a pond:
And an adorable garden shed:
Shade areas (Do you see the gnome?):
Here's my view as I sat perched on a bench in a shady spot:
Some more views...it's a big garden:
For you non-daylily folks (you know it's just a matter of time...):
Oh...and did I mention...there were no weeds!!! Impressive, huh. So, for those of you who can't imagine how to fit in a few more daylilies, I hope this little tour has given you some new ideas.

Okay, I'm off to pack for the Regional in PA this weekend! More daylilies! Yippee!
