I know, I know....I'm a deadbeat blogger...

Sorry I haven't been around recently. I've not been reading blogs much, let alone writing any. I also haven't been working on revisions much. Just seems my thoughts are wrapped up in other things that have become such distractions as to keep me away from what I am supposed to be doing.

First there was the trip to the 'Burg, which I enjoyed, but didn't seem to last long enough. We had rain a couple of the days we were there, so that put a kink in the hose of our fun. Haha!

Back home now, I have laundry and dishes to get caught up on and though I did take walks while I was up visiting, I've yet to pull out the Gazelle since I've been back. Walking and Gazelling are two VERY different things, to say the least and PMS is lurking around the corners, so I'm not feeling all that great at the moment, either. Yeah, that's JUST lovely...LOL

I'm also distracted by the out of doors... speaking of...isn't this beautiful?

The daylilies in my yard are blooming out and this one is just one of the most beautiful I've seen in a long time.

I have rogue sunflowers coming up from last year. I hadn't expected them at all, but well, they're there and I'm not mowing over them.

I'm eager to see my tigridia and gladiolus bloom too, as well as my morning glories and I'm keeping my fingers crossed to see more blossoms on my knock-out rose.

Though I'm not up to much lately and seems I'm doing nothing, it still seems that things around me are chaotic. Here's hoping that settles down in the near future.

I'll be making another trip to the 'Burg in less than 2 weeks to stay one more week with my folks and sister. Figured I'd better fit in a couple of good visits before school starts back in August.

I will try to post again when I feel I actually have something about WRITING to say. :D

That is about the most beautiful daylily I've ever seen in my life. I wish I had one in my yard. Now I'll be on a quest to find one just like it.

It's okay to take a break from daily writing. I make art and I can't keep it up day after day for months on end. Sometimes I need a break. A few days, a few weeks, and one time I even took a break for nearly 6 months.

The 6 month time though I was having a creative block. The rest of the time the creative part of my mind and soul simply needed a break.

So, don't worry about it, you'll find yourself back in the saddle when it's right for you.

Taryn, you're not the only blogger out there having a life instead of sitting at the keyboard. Some people are officially on blog hiatus. So don't worry if you're not in the mood. I imagine the blog will wait for you. Enjoy your summer!

Thanks ladies.

Janet- that is a "My Melinda" daylily- a Hemerocallis Hybrid- if that helps.(I found the plant tag in the desk drawer LOL) I got mine here locally- perhaps at Wal-Mart or maybe it was at a store we had called Pamida that has since gone out of business.

It was potted when I got it, but you might try searching online for places that might sell daylilies as well or maybe ask a local nursery in your area if they can order it. It is my favorite of all my daylilies.

I have some Stella De Oro (yellow), a Pandora's Box (creamy white with deep red center) and I have a deep red one with a yellow center, but can't recall the name of it at the moment.

Hope that helps though.

Thanks! It does help. I'll look for that.

Hope you are feeling great and rested. Looking forward to when you do feel like blogging here again, but no pressure.

Oh, I just remembered... I have a friend who owns a daylily farm in South Carolina! I'm going to ask him about that. If he has them, maybe I can buy some from him and have him ship them in the Fall when the temps aren't so high.

Thanks again. I'm so glad you posted that picture. If I can find those, great. If not, it gives me something to aspire to, a beautiful daylily.
