One of the things that I like best about daylilies is that they are in the moment. And, when the moment is over, they move on. They don’t hold on to the past, like we humans do. So, today they are my mentors.

I love the late fall-colored blooms, but I have got to tell you that I find new roots almost equal in their awesomeness. I mean, you get some stuff in the mail that looks like wilted root veggies and you trim them back and plant them. And, within days, they start becoming daylilies. They are so optimistic about the future!
