First Day Lilies

Today we are going back to July 24, 2020, back to the beginning of this project. On that day, just after 3:30 in the afternoon I picked up my camera and put the little Helios 44-2 lens on it, set my camera to manual and headed out into the garden. I started looking at the wildflowers around and those we had planted in our garden and began taking photos of them. I didn’t know what I was trying to achieve, I just thought that it was time that I did something creative again. This was one of the very first photographs I took on that afternoon in late July, as the light hit this grouping of daylilies on a bank near the little gooseberry bush and milkweed plants under the prickly pear tree. And so this project was born. A Flower a Day has been going since August (not shared on this site until September) and I have built up a reserve of flower photographs to share with you all, along with my thoughts and hopes for each day. I hope you enjoy seeing an image of that day when it all began for me!

And don’t miss today’s bonus post Winter Sunrise here.

  1. Happy is how they look, dancing in the sunlight, soaking up those early spring rays when the sun’s strength feels so good. And happy is how they make me feel. We will see that moment again when the daylilies bob in the breeze and nod to passers-by. Thank you, Ellie, for this reminder of warmer days ahead.

  2. Beautiful colour and light on those lilies. Be nice to have those spread throughout that whole area of woods as you walk along. Thanks again for sharing
