Saturday Snapshot

I didn't start out gardening, but I do like to sit and have my morning coffee and look out the window, and see something pretty, and so began the gardening adventure.  There is good and bad involved.  Bad, skunks digging up my yard and smelling up my yard, there are those pesky weeds.  The good, lovely flowers. And so I present:  The good things about day lillies...
they are bright, and tall and lush
they come in a variety of colours
they require little or no attention, an occasional watering...
THE BAD, each bloom flowers for just ONE day.  And come mid August they are mostly done!

BUT the best part of day lillies is look how great those car parts look.

Those lilies are beautiful, but so fleeting. I had lots at my old house, but haven't planted any in our current house. I enjoyed seeing your lovely yard.
