However, it does look like
"Daylily" or " Day Lilies"The colour is different but the leaves are the same. It's a stunning little plant and I'm off shortly to find out more about it.
Latin name: Hemerocallis 'Autumn Red'
But not before I tell you about a comical week having a tube well drilled. Diego, the water diviner and driller, came and pointed out the spot and said about 25 metres down....sure enough it was. Then the plumber with a long submersible pump with cables and tubes; a bricklayer next to make good all around the well with a nice square chamber and a little caseta to house the control unit and keep it weather prooof. We await the electrician to couple all this up but we've had wind and rain and no-one works in those conditions. All this conducted in the incomprehensible local Spanish, translated by neighbour Gonzalo in his slower, clearer Spanish while he wanted to do hands on work in all the trades. It has been an exhausting and stressful week as we rushed around buying materials.....I'm sure we understood only half of what we've been told. We only hope the whole thing works, even though with the amount of rain we've had lately we're unlikely to need it until next summer.
