red throat

this certainly is not the only daylily with a red throat.  there are others, just not a lot compared what is usually seen these days.  and now that i have talked about the center of this flower what was my plan to talk about this flower ?  daylilies respond to a lot of environmental factors.  hot days, cool nights and hot nights.  these are some of the factors that determine how a daylily will look.  i guess i should look up the temperature history the day before this flower bloomed.  on the 8th of July it was 86 degrees in Cleveland Ohio and went down to 71 over night.  on the 9th it went up to 78.   and this is how it looked.  three images and a very very good day for Apophis…
