Did you make someone SMILE today?

Dear Blog Friends,   As you know,  I love our Day Lilies --but didn't realize that I hadn't posted any of them at all until Sept. 28... Click to see that first Day Lily post: The Link

When thinking about Day Lilies,  I think about all of the blooms they produce for us...  No matter what the circumstances (too hot, too dry,  too rainy/stormy, critters nibbling on them,  etc.), the Day Lilies always bloom and continue to smile at us (and make us smile). 

So when thinking about the Day Lilies (and all flowers) ---I have to ask myself what have I done to make someone smile??????  We all have good and bad times in our lives. Even at times when we are  sad, weary, tired, sick or just 'down' ---we still need to smile and share that smile with those around us...  AND --if we do that,  it will actually make us feel better also!!!

Hope you enjoy more pictures from this summer's  Day Lilies...  Some of our oldest plants really put on a big show each year... Those older plants are in the bed near the road, which I call our Road Bed. Each of those plants give us about 50 or more blooms each.... AMAZING...










Hope you 'mouse-over' --or place your mouse on each picture without clicking,  to get information about each picture... I always enjoy sharing my pictures ---but I always want to give a short explanation about each one....  There's nothing worse (to me) than someone putting a bunch of pictures on their Blog  with no information or explanation....

Can you pick a favorite (or 2-3) of this group?  My favorite is Francis Joiner --since I love the Double Day Lilies --and the color of this one is so pretty... 

 Have an awesome week ---and don't forget to make someone  SMILE!!!!

Hugs,

Betsy💝💛💚💕
