Daylilies

daylilies

These are the daylilies that are in my backyard. I never noticed them before (possibly because we never actually ventured into the backyard last year?).

I love all lilies, so I really love these.  They seem to be all over the place in Michigan, so I shouldn't have been too shocked to find a bunch of them in my own yard.

And, after the first bloom this year it dawned on me why they are called daylilies.  Luckily, there are always new blooms, so it doesn't feel like they only last a day!  It's fun for the girls to see how many are there each morning, and they start my day with just the right dose of beauty.

What beautiful things are you enjoying?

  2. I'm loving (and treating them like newborns) our 3 new trees that we planted in our backyard. They make such a difference already.

  3. I love lilies. I need to plant some. They make me so happy.

    Our sunflowers just started blooming and I love looking at them. They are so incredibly tall and resilient. You would be amazed.

  4. These lilies are just beautiful. My favorite thing right now is taking Kaitlyn outside and watching her marvel at all of the little things - grass, dirt, playing in little puddles of water.
