I had resigned to the probability that there would be no day lilies near the front door at all this year. The plants were a third of their usual height and most of the bulbs had not even sprouted. The peculiar spring weather had adversely affected their growth. I’m used to seeing a few dozen blooming day lily plants each year.
The other day, I noticed one of the stunted plants sported a solitary flower. There is another bud on the stalk that appears ready to bloom soon, so there will probably be a pair of the flowers to enjoy this year. The orange flower inspired this week’s Floral Friday projects.
The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes actor, model, singer, songwriter, TV personality, RuPaul. “I always bring an orange scarf, not just so I can wear it or tuck it into my pocket, but also so I can throw it over a lamp in the hotel room. Orange is my favourite colour, and it gives a lovely, warm ambience.”
