That's a lovely day Lilly. I think it's quite an old variety because I remember seeing them in some old people's house as a child.
Yes Andrew I have had this daylily for many years & have given many large clumps to lots of people because it is so sunny, vibrant & cheerful in a large clump. Interestingly there doesn't seem to be so many frills on the petals today, which I guess must have something to do with the moist weather. I also have a single identically coloured daylily that I think was one of it's parents. I used to help in the acreage garden of a bloke who bred multitudes of them.
I also have a very large single almost iridescent bright yellow daylily also bred way back when but it has finished flowering this year. I keep them because they are so healthy & strong without disease.
I think the pink flowered tree is a pink cassia. I can't remember the species. Does it produce long round seed pods? Tipuana sp on the other hand have single winged seeds.
You know Andrew, the revelation struck me like a bolt as I read your words
I've been calling it a tipuana because of it's tall spreading habit like a wide mouthed vase.
But indeed you are right
It is a Cassia. It does produce those long black cassia pods.
Funny how none of them have ever struck when I remember cassias as being a pesty weed.
Many years ago my Mother planted lots of Lilac cassias all around their 'new' house & seedlings used to come up under the trees like a carpet. My Father used to mutter words as he mowed the carpet down every year.
This tree looks or is shaped nothing like the ones around my parents house. mmmm very interesting
