A daily record of gratitude; from quilting to photography to a mix of technology, books, movies and the musings of life!

Welcome to my Blog of my daily gratitude and photo of the day!

Since January 1, 2012, my goal is to write a daily sentence or two (or paragraph or two) about gratitude of the day and to include one photo (at least) that I took that day (but will add others from time to time). It has definitely been a challenge most days throughout the past eight years, and welcomed the challenge again this year - 2020 - Covid and all. I hope you will continue the ride with me!

A Day in the Life of a Daylily

The summer of 2020 is in full swing with abundance of rain...ahem, and beautiful flowers showing off in all their petal glory. But one flower, the daylily, only blooms for one day; opening in the morning and by the end of the day, its life is over. Thankfully, the flowering stalk continues producing new blooms for up to a few weeks, because, let's face it, that is a sad story for a attractive flower.

So, let's get this straight, the daylily must live its life as best as it could for less than 24 hours - from sunup to sundown. There is not much else to do except look pretty in the yard or field it is growing in, though maybe a kooky woman may take your photo for posterity, right?



The below daylily was taken while out on a scoot, with the sunlight was just right and petals opened to take in the day...
