Remember Kodachrome? And, the need to get enough film for all the photos you might want to take ahead? And rewinding the film? Processing? I would go nuts (and broke) in the daylily garden if life was still like that.
This summer, I am trying to tame my desire to take 15 photos of the same daylily on the same day. Seriously, though, lighting and angle do make a difference. So do 10-hour work days. And, so I am trying to find a happy medium.
Today’s only new bloom is Baja. This one is such a cool red color – it has been blooming in my yard for a few years now. And, for some reason, I only got one photo of it in full bloom today. I guess I had calls to make to students and didn’t want to be late. It did not open until after my work day started.
For tomorrow, I think Black-Eyed Susan is close. She is new this year. Maybe Orange Vols. I have a lot of newer scapes still on some that have not bloomed yet. The bugs have gotten the better of a few. Hoping for a nice second peak very soon.
