A day lily kind of day.

.

I really wish they were month lilies.

.

.

Because they’re a wonderful pop of color in the garden and a day just isn’t enough.

.

.

I have them scattered here and there around the property.

.

.

And while this dark pink is my favorite, it’s never grown larger… though I planted it 17 long years ago.

.

.

This line of hostas and day lilies was here when we moved in… and though it’s not a good spot, I’ve yet to relocate them.

.

.

This double ruffle is sweet.

.

.

But the stormy sky behind my backyard patch?

.

.

Not at all sweet.

.

What’s blooming?

.

Day lilies.

.

.

Day lilies are what’s blooming at Casa River.

.

.

Almost everyone in Maine has this orange variety, for some reason they’re prolific, hardy and can withstand our crazy weather better than the others.

.

.

It’s a shame they don’t last longer…

.

.

They’re a wonderful blast of color.

.

.

These two are my favorites.

.

.

Deep, dark…

.

.

And gloriously rich shades.
