The above photos, are of mine & dad’s, colourful and spectacular Day Lily, which is now in full bloom. Personally this plant is the King of my garden, and he was originally my dad’s pride and joy, and I rescued the Day Lily from my parents homestead in Ocean Grove, (“Tullawalla”), and of course I enjoy a strong spiritual connection with this lovely flower, especially this time of the year, as the Day Lily blooms to coincide with the anniversary of my dad’s birthday, eleven days ago…..
Day Lily, Love and Another Year
Upon my pillow I sleep.
Good morning, I do peek.
From the cushion of my dreams.
To my yard’s radiating beams.
Of blushing red hues, oh so bright.
You flower during the night.
And after cuddling the dew.
You open up your scenic view.
Blooming, standing proud and steep.
Vivid perfection at my feet.
A glorious Lily, like wings of a dove.
And by day you air your love.
