Daylily Madness #7

Thunderstorms are predicted all day - some with wind and hail. I decided I wouldn't be able to enjoy any of the daylilies in my yard and they would end their bloom tonight without my savoring.

Some daylilies are putting out their last blooms of the season, not to be seen again until next summer.

I picked one of each bloom!

FYI: Daylilies can be picked and remain open and beautiful all day without water. They have their assigned time to stay bloomed and whether they are on the stem or laying on a table, it makes no difference to them.

Some are more fragile and will droop a little (especially some spiders) but most will remain perfectly beautiful. Admit it, how often do you stay in your yard and simply stare at your beautiful blooms. Brought into the house or work place, you may pass them dozens of times a day. You can enjoy them up close and smell the fragrant ones and observe the one with subtle colorings.

This little display on my dining room table certainly brightened this rainy gray day! Double click on the picture if you'd like to view them up close and personal, too.
