Tranquility Daylily Gardens
More about the garden:
My gardens are tucked up in the middle of the woods off of a winding drive, sitting on just over two acres of rolling hills and trails. Visitors can start their stroll down at my “she-shed” where, depending on the time of the year, they will find Iris, Lillium, Peonies, Tall Phlox, Black-Eyed Susans, Hostas and a variety of Daylilies. They can sit a spell around the fitpit or begin their stroll down the trail following the purple wrought-iron markers guiding them along the way. The mulched trails are lined with several hundred Hostas, Siberian Iris, Ferns and woodland plants. Should a guest want to stop and soak in the view, several sitting areas have been strategically placed. As the trail winds through the woods, it comes to an opening in the trees where over half of my Daylilies live in what I refer to as the LilyPad. Outlining the clearing, more Hostas, Hellebores, Lilium and Iris are growing. After walking through the lilypad, a visitor can pick the trail back up where they are met by another seating area surrounded by more shade plants.
Should they continue on up the trail, they’ll find themselves at my Salsa Garden filled with Tomatoes, Herbs, Onion and Zukes. The remaining Daylilies are planted in small scrolling gardens accented by a large variety of perennials and annuals. The location of my gardens is peaceful and serene, leading me to naming my place Tranquility Daylily Gardens. It’s a special place to get grounded with nature, listen to the birds, and see some beautiful Daylilies.
