Daylilies

IMG_1196_Snapseed As the monkey headed out for an afternoon walk yesterday he was struck by a profusion of blooming Daylilies in his front yard.  The technical name for these flowers is Hemerocallis which comes from the Greek words "day" and "beautiful."  These wonderful flowers certainly live up to their name but the blooms only last about 24 hours.  Fortunately there are lots and lots of buds so the next few weeks should be wonderful!

Travel safe.  Have fun.
