Summer is truly in full bloom around here...and I love it! It's my favorite time of year, partly because of the beautiful blooms that surround me here on our property. But I'm also a big fan of summer because there is so much light and, therefore, less darkness. Light is good, yes?
Day lilies are in their glory right now. We have many different colors, only 1 of which was already existing when we moved here. The others have been lovingly transplanted from my parents' and my in-laws' gardens.
Did you know that day lilies get their name from the fact that each individual bloom is open for just one day? Their beauty is so fleeting, as are these long summer days.
What's blooming in your backyard?
