Come with me, and meet my Daylilies. Seeing them will bring a smile to your face. Each bloom only lasts for a day, and what a beautiful day it is!

A smile is a curve that sets everything straight. ~ Phyllis Diller

The Daylily flowers each year at the height of summer, when the days are filled with sunshine, and now and then, lovely summer rain showers. They seem to grow everywhere in the area where I live, and seeing them you can understand why. Their brilliant orange color, and graceful petals are so striking.

The color orange is optimistic and uplifting. It radiates warmth and happiness, and can help us look at the bright side of life. These are just a few of the excellent qualities of orange. These lovely flowers certainly brighten the day!

I hope you’re enjoying a beautiful summer. I’ll leave you with some inspiring words from the wonderful Groucho Marx about choosing happiness today . 🙂

I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.  ~ Groucho Marx

    Lovely picture and inspiring sunny words! I’m looking our the window at my daylilies too. They are bright yellow and are blooming like crazy! I think they liked all the rain we got earlier in the season.

  • Karen, being a wearer of muted color tones, my reaction to your photo and words surprises me. I could so wear this photo joyfully radiating, what I call ‘lily living’, . . . such a burst of wonder!

    • Thank you very much for sharing your thoughts, Kay! What an awesome phrase “burst of wonder!” is. I know what you mean. I don’t often wear bold colors either, but these daylilies have me seeing orange in a new light!
