Diggin’ Double Daylilies

What could be prettier than the daylilies found in nature? They have a simple purity, often in bright yellow or gold. Modern daylilies have definitely been gilded with colors and patterns and, yes, even ruffled edges of gold. Sometimes I ask myself why anyone would want a double daylily, but then a bloom opens and my doubts melt away like frothy whipped cream on my hot cocoa.

They aren’t perfect. They’re a little wild and unpredictable, but right now, I’m diggin’ ’em.
