Playing with balance and relationships, I think, JNB.
I like them a lot.

One of those photos I stood in one place for an hour ... without too much success ... light didn't break through properly.

Moira, the mare I often feed with carrots, stands still for hours. Sometimes, she appears to have remained overnight on exactly the same spot as on the previous day, despite having a large field to explore. Of course, the fact that most of it is arid may be influential.

Or she just likes my carrots. And is patient which, devoid of much else left to do, is an emotional state to which well worth the clinging.

She is also a part-time philosopher.

Imagine the philosophy of the day lily: born in the morning, pestered by flies & bees immediately, decaying visibly by the hour, will never know its offspring or even if they'll be any, dead and gone shortly after sundown.  :D

But then there are the Remains of the Daylily.

A fragile beauty, just before it decomposes and returns to the earth. Nice.

Thank-you Eric and John. Of course the title is somewhat tongue-in-cheek, with apologies to Anthony Hopkins, the cast and crew, and the author of the original book The Remains of the Day. Then, of course, there's the Remains of the Day lunchbox, from Waiting for Guffman.  As Corky St. Clair says "Kids don't like eating at school, but if they have a Remains of the Day lunchbox they're a lot happier." :)

Thanks. The difficulty, in the drought and heatwave we're experiencing this summer, is keeping it that way.

My day lily crop has been very poor this year, likely due to the yo-yo-ing temperatures and multiple ice storms we experienced in early spring. Only two left to bloom after this one.

Nice late evening sky tonight. As usual I was sitting in my backyard enjoying the summer warmth. My pal Susan, who'd come over for dinner, was fussing about in my garden. "Hey, Dave, you should take a picture of this." She then came over and showed me a smartgizmo pic she'd taken. So I popped inside and grabbed a camera.  :)

I love this quality of very soft and beautiful light...tell Susan she has a great eye, as you do.
