pensive .. poignant - in time caught - local, talented singer heard last night - young fellow who got up from his seat on the outside deck - and opened the door to the Grille for me - that hasn't happened in awhile - we chatted a few minutes - then, found out he was going to be singing/playing a little later - taken with available lighting - cropped only - (c) All Rights Reserved ** 1 note **

Soft orange Daylily .. Update: per Dave's Garden site, this is a Kwanso variety, not fully open. There are three layers when open and this lasts longer than one day .. so, is it still a Daylily or a Day+ lily ? throat of yellow with darker orange/red .. just touched by the paintbrush .. of Mother Nature .. not fully open .. checked and looked and there are 2 layers of petals .. this is new ! and the middle part with all the pollen .. so far .. hasn't opened .. will have to go out late and see if it is there ! this makes the 4th kind of Daylily .. in the Garden of Surprises !
