I never thought much about the personality and variety of daylilies until I stepped outside the other day with my pocket camera and snapped a bunch. Yes, of course I’ve planted them all myself over the past several years, but I can’t say I really looked all that closely.
What a wonderous display! Some throw their narrow petals outwards like cheerleaders enthusiastically waving pom poms. Others have all the subtlety of Gypsy Rose Lee, with a colorful “look at me” vibe. Still others seem more tightly wrapped, like a shy little girl pulling her cardigan sweater close. Some even remind me of amaryllis at Christmas.
I posted a gallery of shots at Open Salon. Here’s the link. Enjoy what’s left of summer!
