flow

as in go with. there are more than two pictures from dayton. so why linger in cleveland ?

toothy

this is another flower from a dayton garden. the kind you are not too likely to find in my garden. this flower instead of having a ruffled edge has teeth. if i had more room there would be some of these and some other varieties in my garden. it is a beautiful flower. i just keep filling up garden space with other pretty daylilies. and i can enjoy them no matter what garden they are in and no matter what forms they take…

raspberry and red

did i lead into that gently ? did i leave room for more words ? or did i tell the whole story in the title ? i just might have. is it too late to say it is a nice open star shape and that the color of the eyezone repeats on the sepals ? now about that flower…
