The first of the Daylilies started blooming this week, but when I went out with the camera yesterday the flowers had closed. Today, another blossom and another chance.
When first married I once decorated the table for a small dinner party using tiny glasses of Daylilies, as I had seen my friend Janice do when visiting her just a few days earlier.
Just before the guests arrived I checked the table one last time only to discover the Daylilies had all tightly closed. Suddenly I remembered my friend’s beautiful centerpiece had graced her table at brunch, not dinner, and I realized how Daylilies got their name.
