I had written Aisling earlier today and told her that it was so hot, I couldn't take a Sunday stroll, but I got invited this afternoon up to my mom's for supper and it had cooled down in the late afternoon enough where we could walk around a bit and see what new DayLily there was. So, with camera in hand, we strolled and the most AMAZING thing happened. So I just had to share.
The Daylillies are in their glory and the yellow ones are amazing, I've taken picture after picture of them but I still can't resist.
These little purple ones remind me of that rhyme "Pretty Little Maidens" all in a row, only there are more than three.
This one was the new one, beautiful frilly Peachy color. It was pretty.
And then the most amazing thing I was talking about happened. All spring there have been the most beautiful butterflies and I've tried and tried to get a picture of one on the flowers but I never could, they'd move at the wrong moment, they'd be in a bad position, I wouldn't be up close enough, but this afternoon, without a butterfly in sight, right before I clicked, he landed and here it is, finally, my butterfly picture. And it makes me smile.
I think it was a special gift and I accept it proudly. How about that?
