Good morning! I'm here as usual, getting my daily Farm Photo fix. This one's a beauty. :)
Hi - and thanks for visiting my blog! OK, I'm going to run after the kitties this evening (we have 3) and see if I can get a decent photo. Last night our youngest had an adventure chasing a neighbor cat up a tree (required a ladder and a flashlight at 10:30 pm to get her down), so I may have to photograph her just to highlight her insanity. :)
Looks like a TIGGER lily to me!!!
Is is a wild lily?
Tiger lilies and daylilies are commonly confused (maybe just me?), but this is a daylily. Sort of reminds me of a dragon or something medieval.
I just assumed it was a daylily, as it looks like so many others in the area, and that's what everyone calls them.All I know is, last year Joe forgot to mow "those weeds" in the front yard next to the fence, and whaddya know? Daylilies popped up! We only had two bloom this year, but it's definitely better than nothing. And almost more special than a whole yard full of them (though I certainly wouldn't mind that either). :)So they aren't truly "wild," but I do know that the flowers that do best on the farm are the ones that are totally left alone: daffodils, echinacea, spiderwort, etc. You have to be hardy to survive here--flower or person!
