Day Lilies in the Spotlight

The day lilies are beginning their blooming season, a lush profusion of big, showy blooms lifting their faces to the sun.

Their blooming cycle is brief–each lasts just one day–but I look forward to it every year. It’s like revisiting old friends. And even as they fade, there is still a kind of beauty to the waning blooms.
