A few years back I purchased some daylilies from NH Daylily a wonderful local nursery located at 48 Mason Rd in New Ipswich, NH. These plants were field grown and were large and vigorous. I planted them on a hillside which was a foolish choice since they were out of view. This year I moved them to a new home and gave them a nice dose of Chicken Gold from Amazing Flower Farm (also a local nursery). I am being rewarded for my efforts by a colorful display of blooms.
Severe weather was predicted all day, however we were spared any damaging wind and hail. Instead we were given a spectacular light show around dusk here in New Ipswich. It was hard to capture the colors as I saw them. The leaves and sky were on fire.
