Today's Flowers


A Day Lily by my back door - Summer, 2008

Other than a few now snow-chilled daffodils (we had a scattering of snow last night), there are no flowers in my garden. So, I share with you the colorful lily which bloomed in a small bed just outside my back door in June of last year.

Today's Flowers is a weekly Meme created by Luiz Santilli, Jr. and may be found here. Please visit to see others' lovely flower photos. If you have a flower photo of your own to share, please join us.

What a beautiful flower! Yes my garden is still flowerless too but for one crocus and a group of snowdrops.

Truly a lovely flower - and a very beautiful macro of it! It shows off all its beauty!

The only thing wrong with a day lily is that it only lasts a day. lol. Love the color of yours. Mine are orange.
Thanks for your comment on my Alabama post.

It's so bad not have flowers in the winter time, isn'it!

Your lili is very nice!

High lily, high lily, hi-lo! (As the song goes)

Beautiful daylily, Pat. We have several of those in our yard. They are so pretty. When we first moved to the Glade in 2003, Dad Adams gave us a big bunch of these Daylilies. They come back every year and are SO pretty.

Alot of people up here in Fairfield Glade have the yellow daylilies now--because they bloom longer than a day!!! (Guess they need to change the name!!! ha)

Have a great week.
Hugs,
Betsy

Your day lily is lovely. Red is an unusual color for them, here.

What a great shot of a very beautiful and unusual day lily, shot at its short prime. Flower time will get here, but it's hard to wait. We all love flowers, just like Luiz says!
