The daylilies that line one side of our driveway are part of a peace I enjoy as I head out for my walk.
When I was growing up I remember daylilies being referred to as ditch flowers, and I don't remember paying too much attention to them.
Let's take a short little stroll and I hope you enjoy these amazing little beauties as much as I do.
One day when I was young, and walking with a friend, a field dry
as straw bloomed with flowers. "Oh, glory!" we breathed, my good
friend and I, for the flowers blazed like suns and fire and rainbows.
They sprang from folds between hillsides, peeked from pockets of
shade. Spiraling - dancing - they followed us home...

note: some of these daylilies came from Weston Farms - if you can't get to Garner, NC, they do a terrific mail order business
