Daylilies

Daylilies still brighten the landscape, though the quantity and vigor of the flowers are lessened by the heat, lack of rain and passing of time. Still, from wild oranges that seem to find a bit of moisture in the irrigation ditches to those plants with a bit of afternoon sun, their cheerful colors continue to delight!

I thought I'd give these a more studied approach and try to show the wonderful warm colors in their petals....

It's cooled a bit, if one considers mid-90s to be cool, and so being out of doors isn't as difficult as when temps and humidity were over 100F ...

Hope your day is grand!
