A church friend loaded the back of my truck last fall with perennials for my flower gardens. Among them was a large patch of daylily plants. Daylilies are my favorite! I stuck them in the ground, watered, prayed, and hoped they'd get to bloom before the deer find them.
Well, last night I came home to a Stella D'Oro bloom in the flower bed by my back porch. Looks beautiful, smells wonderful. Daylilies are my favorite because they're absolutely beautiful to look at, but they last only a brief time. I like having them around to remind me to take care of the garden, and appreciate the small blessings. Hmmm.. a little bit like life, huh?
