It's become so gloomy today: light showers outdoors, lights turned on against the dark in the kitchen. And it's cooling off quite a lot. So I thought I'd post these daylilies, which I photographed earlier in the month, to ward off the blues. Daylilies come into their own in August, in their myriad forms and colors. They are the perfect plant guests: never demanding, always well behaved, and lovely.


  1. And these are edible like tiger lilies are? Do you use them (or other flowers) in salads?

  2. Yes, daylilies are edible, but I don't happen to eat them. I've never even tasted one. I put herb flowers––thyme, marjoram, oregano––in salads, and arugula flowers are pretty and tasty as well.
