The Villages Florida Area Real Estate: Friday Fotos - Delightful Daylilies

Friday Fotos - Delightful Daylilies

The wind is howling outside my window right now--cold weather is moving in again after two days in the 50s that helped to melt off a bit of the snow and ice that has plagued Connecticut for the past six weeks.  No more melting for a while now, I guess.  Since everyone is tired of snow (and pictures of such), I thought I would share a few more photos from White Flower Farm in Morris, CT.  My wife loves Daylilies, so whenever we go there, she takes lots of pictures of them.  Keep in mind that White Flower Farm is a plant nursery, but it is also about 75% park where the public is welcome to wander.  Spring will come . . .

Where did this guy come from?  Did I mention that White Flower Farm also has an abundance of Butterflies (with good reason!).

Hi Patricia - Can you imagine how much more we are going to appreciate every flower that pops up this spring?

Hi Stacey - Thanks.  No flowers blooming outside right now (some inside though).  This is a wishful thinking post.  : )

Hi Patrick - A great day to you too!

Chris, when I saw the title, I had to stop by to check these beauties out!  Ah, just another couple of months.  Can't wait.

Oh how pretty and a gorgeous butterfly as well.  There's hope that Spring will get here, eventually.

I for one am ready for spring Chris. Beautiful Daylilies and a nice butterfly to boot.

Chris, very nice photos!  Can't wait for Spring!

Beautiful flower pictures, Chris. You did have a couple of nice days-it was just a teaser, I guess. Stay warm.

Chris, I am crying now... crying I tell you.... are you sure spring is coming? Snowing outside as I type this, winds blew a shutter off the house....

I love White Flower Farm!!!!!

Chris that is a very nice place up there, and it flows with people and colors in the spring. Thanks for the colors.

Chris,

The day lilies are so bright and beautiful! And I love that blue butterfly - that was a bonus! Your wife had a great idea! I hope you go there more often because it looks like a very special and peaceful place to visit.

Great shots, Chris. I'm also thinking about the flowers of spring and summer. Have a special weekend!

June in Kentlands. Life is good in Montgomery County, Maryland!

Chris, it is clear you are a person who will find "spring" in anything you do regardless of what mother nature has in mind. Your wonder images of daylilies prompted me to add flowers to my market list! 

Posted by Emily Medvec Qualifying Broker, Realtor | Serving Santa Fe & Northern NM (Hello Realty Partners) over 7 years ago

Hi Patricia - I am going to watch the progress of every flower as it blooms in my yard this year!

Hi Sue - The wind is blowing a gale right now--has been all day.  Sounds like March will be coming in like a lion!

Posted by Chris Canfield, Homes for Sale in Oro Valley and Tucson, Arizona (Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage) over 7 years ago

Hi Doug - Anyone hoping to lengthen this winter had better stay away from the Northeast!

Hi Tony and Darcy - Thanks.  Two thumbs up for Spring!

Hi Toni - It was a welcome teaser!  All the ice has finally melted off my gutters!

Posted by Chris Canfield, Homes for Sale in Oro Valley and Tucson, Arizona (Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage) over 7 years ago

Hi Andrea - I feel for you!!  The wind last night slammed our house so hard that I thought a tree came down!  However, unless the tree blew away, I can't find any evidence (or damage--knock wood).

Hi Ed - White Flower Farm is a VERY special place!

Posted by Chris Canfield, Homes for Sale in Oro Valley and Tucson, Arizona (Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage) over 7 years ago

Hi Patricia - We try to get to White Flower Farm quite often (even though it is not too close to where we live).  We used to take my mother-in-law every late July before she passed away--she loved it SO much!

Hi Roy--Another great Roy Kelley shot!  Thanks for adding it to the post!

Hi Emily - You have to try to find a bright side in everything.  As I sit here writing now, I am having trouble finding a bright spot listening to the howling wind that has been going strong for 24 hours.  Perhaps I should be glad that it isn't snowing too?  : )

Posted by Chris Canfield, Homes for Sale in Oro Valley and Tucson, Arizona (Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage) over 7 years ago

Beautiful photos, Chris. My wife loves daylilies, too. We have a bunch of deep-purple daylilies planted around our yard. Just gorgeous when they bloom.

Posted by Bill Burchard, Broker, Realtor, Representing Buyers and Sellers (3B Realty: 951-347-3818, CA) over 7 years ago

Hi Bill - My wife loves daylilies so much that she wants to get some of the "new" kind that bloom all summer long.  The only problem is, we don't have any more garden space!

Posted by Chris Canfield, Homes for Sale in Oro Valley and Tucson, Arizona (Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage) over 7 years ago

So Chris, when the wind is howling, you can just retreat into your photos of daylilies and summer! Great idea :) Yes, Spring will come.

Chris,

The daylilies are lovely... so bright and beautiful!!  Thanks for sharing them.

Hi Frank and Sharon - We have to find some retreat.  The wind has died down; now there is a winter storm heading our way . . 

Hi Linda - Thanks!  I can't wait until they pop up in my yard!

Posted by Chris Canfield, Homes for Sale in Oro Valley and Tucson, Arizona (Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage) over 7 years ago

Chris - lovely well captured pictures of daylilies and the butterfly.

Hi Petra - Thanks very much!

Chris: I love daylilies, they are my favorite and so easy to grow here in Southern California!

Posted by Sidney Kutchuk - Realty Works Temecula Kutchuk - Realty Works Temecula, Realty Works Temecula (Realty Works Temecula) over 7 years ago

Hi Jane - Daylilies are easy to grow in Connecticut too--we just don't get to enjoy them all year long like you do!

Posted by Chris Canfield, Homes for Sale in Oro Valley and Tucson, Arizona (Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage) over 7 years ago

Nice photos Chris.  By the way, did you know that the top bar on your page isn't showing up.  I'm not sure what it's called or how to change it.  Was that on purpose?  Usually we can see our "my home" on other AR blog pages, but I couldn't see it on yours.

Hi Brenda - Yes, I know it. When you work your way back to Better Blogging #1 and sign up for the webinars, you will find out why. : ) It's a little tip that Steven Graham shares. The "home" is still there, you just can't see it.
