Tony’s Daylily

Today’s flower is one with special memories for me. It is a rich dark purple, a lovely colour and was given to us by my dear stepfather, Tony. He was visiting us in the spring years ago and bought it for us as a gift. During the visit he remarked that actually he should have visited us that fall, but he had got the various visits he made to family mixed up. I was really glad he had, as he had a bicycle accident in the late summer and died shortly after that. We had that special time with him and now we have this beautiful daylily. Every time it blooms I have fond memories of our times with him. So this flower is one that brings happiness to me in my memories. I hope it brings you the same moment of happiness in your day today.

  2. What a sad and beautiful story was behind this shot. I’m so sorry about him, but I’m also glad that this gorgeous Lily makes you think of him. He’s happy for sure.
