find a facet

look at the pictures.  look at the flowers.  picture found.  find some words ?  the daylilies can pretty much talk for themselves.  if.  if one takes the time and really looks.  if it is something more than ‘yup that is a daylily – gotta run…’   the key word in stop and smell the roses is ‘stop’.  stop the day in day out mad rush.  stop and experience nature.  stop rushing.  put nature, put observation, put beauty, put quiet, put something you can hold onto back into your life.  so find a facet of this flower.  today’s flower is Felyta.  A lavender star shaped flower.  a flower with a bit of an unusual facet.  between the yellow throat and the lavender petal is a cloudy foggy band.  a band with a hint of color.  a band of uniform width.  does it unite or does it divide ?  two images.

    John, enjoying your posts. My gardens are pretty well filled so although I love daylilies (I have about 200 different ones) I have to really justify a new one. I look for something unusual, an unusual colour, form, eye, etc. I like some of the old varieties although they are not as fancy as today’s hybrids, Moonray, Autumn Minaret, etc. And I love spiders and unusual forms. I would love to have more gardens but as I’m getting older (and arthritic), I now have to pay someone to do the heavy work so I need to call a halt to new development. Cheers, Anne.

      Anne, I can thoroughly relate to your plight. I have not yet reached the stage where I need to get help for the heavy chores in the garden. Still I have an appreciation on how that changes ones approach to gardening. Thanks for your comment. And I am glad you enjoy the posts.
