The Last Daylily

Hemerocallis 'Judge Orr' (Orr, 1939)

This lovely surprise was waiting for me in the garden this past weekend.  I just love the way it seems to be reaching out towards the sun.  Judge Orr is one of our historic daylilies (hemerocallis).  The fabulous thing about this particular flower is that it greets me at the beginning of the season - and then, just when I start to think there aren't any more daylilies left, it pops out again.  Rebloomers - you just have to love them!
