Day Lily with Rosemary


Day Lily with Rosemary, originally uploaded by robinintheuk.

But what minutes! Count them by sensation, and not by calendars, and each moment is a day. ~Benjamin Disraeli

Another blip from the back garden.

This is a day lily. I did not plant them. They were here when we moved in and bloom every year ~ only for a day. I tried to cut one once to put in a vase. It shriveled, pretty much instantly. So I admire them from the garden path.

I do, however, love that mother nature in her infinite wisdom gifted us with a flower that beautifies our lives for a day... As if to remind us of the fleeting nature of, well, everything...
