Daylilies and Dill

This comes with thanks to my friend James for the flowers in today’s Flower a Day posting. Our trip to his garden early on in my project at the end of July last year provided me with a wonderful array of flowers with beautiful backdrops. These glorious yellow daylilies are bright among the self-set dill plants that are scattered everywhere in his garden. He has such a display of colour and beauty in flowers and vegetables everywhere you look that it was a real inspiration for me. I went away with so many photographs and even a few little plants including dill to put in my own garden. I never get tired of daylilies – is it beginning to look as if we are having World Daylily Day events rather frequently? Today I really wanted a splash of summer sunshine in our post. And there it is! I hope you can feel its warmth.

  1. These make me feel warm all over, Ellie. Sunshine on a stem. Not only are they bright and cheerful, but they are beautiful in their own right. Seemingly without a care to crease their unfurrowed brow, they catch the sun’s rays and reflect them back to us. And in so doing, they transport me back to a time when all it took to make me happy was to feel the warmth of the sun on my face. This is now a place where I am again today, having learned that it ony takes the simple things to be there. Thank you, Ellie.

    1. Warm is good! And I know that you still put your face to the sun and drink in the rays whenever you can, even in the cold. And, as you say, that moment of simple pleasure will be enough to make you happy. I’m so glad that this image brought that moment of reflection to you to share with us all. And I turned my face to the sun in the cold only this afternoon, bearing your comment in mind, feeling a wonderful happiness as I did so. So thank you for that.
