I love the rich dark purple of this lily and wanted to feature it today for Flower a Day – I seem to often feature lilies on a Saturday for some reason, though not exclusively. This photograph was also taken very early on in my project, in the garden of a friend, saved for a sumptuous treat for us all today! The sunlight was very bright in the heat of a late July day (remember that?) and so the contrast was extreme, but I wanted the lily and here we have it. It gives the feeling of being in a lovely shady glade, perhaps near a stream, sheltered from the intense heat, but where we can still hear the drone of bees nearby as they pollinate the tomato plants in his vegetable patch behind. Hold that thought. Until tomorrow my friends!
