My apricot daylilies (Hemerocallis) were beautiful today. This is a cluster of three I thought were especially nice. Taken in the front yard at my home in Dunnellon, Florida, May 6, 2010.

Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.

    Absolutely beautiful Dot.. You must have a green thumb…

  • Thanks, Carol. I absolutely do not have a green thumb. These come back every year despite my lack of care. Last year something kept eating the flowers and all I was left with was a clean cut stem. Last week when they started blooming, I went out and sprinkled cayenne pepper all around them to ward off whatever was eating them. So far they have been untouched, so maybe the pepper worked! Other than that experiment, I like plants that thrive on neglect, like my orchids and my ZZ plant in the house, and these and azaleas and my one gardenia plant outside.
