[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
While driving through the Killbuck Marsh area, I stopped and took a shot of one of the many Day Lilies that grew along the roadside. These beautiful flowers line the berms of many Ohio backroads.
The one thing I noticed about this particular lily was you never spotted just one plant by itself. They seemed to appear in small patches of plants to very large groups of dozens and dozens.
This lily came to us from Asia and escaped our gardens long ago to now line our countrysides. The flowers bloom from June to August and lack the spots that our native lilies have. They bloom, as the name implies, for one day and then wilt up.

Bonjour Ron,
Très belle publication dans laquelle le sujet est très bien mis en valeur, dans un cadrage serré, par la finesse des détails et la délicatesse des coloris.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
