From My Sketchbook

Hermerocallis sp 'Stella De Oro'
 
 
Otherwise known as the Daylily.
 
The variety Stella De Oro grows in my garden.
Nice and hardy for our harsh Texas summer heat.
And this year they bloomed twice thanks to the mild weather we had.
 
 
It was a very nice surprise.
Unlike the slugs that spent the summer gorging on my hostas no matter what I did to prevent it.

So very beautiful! Sorry to hear about your hostas. Did you try a shallow dish of beer? That's how we get them.

Lovely picture....
"SLUGS" every year they ate my Hostas, I have dozens of Hostas growing in my backyard. Through the years my husband has managed to find them and dump them down the sewer in front of the house...so for the past 2 years we haven't had any so far. But mind you the chipmunks have made a home in there doing other chewing amongst the herbs.
Will follow your Blog now...
