I love daylilies from years of living in Illinois. Unfortunately, they don't grow well in Arizona, so I really miss them. I used my cell phone to take these pictures and because many of the plants were already spent, I took the pictures close-up.
Aren't they gorgeous? I couldn't stop taking pictures of each variety, so many that I won't be able to post them all here. I had planned to write an entry about these lilies, but never got around to it.
When I heard about the tragedy at the Indiana State Fair this past week, it made me think about our trip and these beautiful lilies from Clarksville.
I thought it might be appropriate to remember the people who lost their lives and were injured last weekend. Lilies are a sign of resurrection and I'm praying those who died as well as those who are still suffering might find renewal in God's creation.
