hmmm can two subjects be woven into one post ? the season is ending in a similar fashion to its start. there are 10 or so daylilies blooming and repeating the same images each day quickly looses its novelty. so could any of them be the perfect flower ? or could any of these be the perfect flower ?
then there is this interesting flower. the dim light has fooled the camera. it is not as dark as it seems. this plant is doing what is known as bud building. as long as growing conditions are sufficient it keeps adding a new blossom. each branching has about 12 bud scars so far. and the last image gives a better sense of the available light. and a sense of the potential bloom.
now back to the other grey area. so what is the perfect flower ? is it one in the fading light ? one in the fading summer ? one i can see today ? one i can remember tomorrow? or imagine next summer ? a flower i can hold in my hand ? or is it any flower that can be enjoyed in any of its many forms ? even over the electronic medium ? where ever it is i do hope you find it. if only for a moment. and for a memory.
