Live Life Like a Daylily, One Day at a Time

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.

Today I had four bloomers.  Perhaps this is a sign of optimism from my little friends.  I had little Heirloom Heaven:

Finally, Stella de Oro:

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!

These are the Painted Petroglyph roots that I planted on Tuesday and they already have new green growth.  I’ll try to take another photo next week for comparison.  Next to the roots is a web photo of the cultivator in bloom.  I cannot wait for spring.
