You know summer is on your doorstep when you see banks and banks of orange daylilies flanking a country road. Daylilies pretty much do what their name implies. The flower opens up, burns brightly for a single day and then it’s gone, only to be replaced by another flower the next day. Daylilies self-propogate and thrive on neglect. Just plant a few and watch them spread like wildfire.
I snapped these prolific and lush daylilies yesterday afternoon down a gravel road here. They were putting on such a show of Rustic Chic that I just had to share them.
