A Thing of Beauty


The 'almost white' daylilies (genus Hemerocallis)
looked stunning in the early morning
filtering through the trees
in my backyard this A.M.
They are such a strong and a proud
flower, sturdy looking really. But as I
understand it, their blooms do not last long
(which is why they are not used in cut
flower arrangements often, if at all)

The early morning light made
them appear almost magical.


  1. Gorgeous. I used to go to a therapist years ago and would meet with him at his house (because I was a friend, too) and when we were done talking, we would walk the back yard and look at all the daylilies. His late wife had some named after her - they were so lovely.

  2. What a wonderful story Lynn. Thank you for that.

  3. What a gorgeous daylily that is, lg! So exotic! I have about seven different ones, but nothing with stamen like that! It is magical. Of all the blooms in the garden, the lilies are thriving in the drought we're experiencing. They make me smile because they look so darn happy :)


Please do...tell.
