EVERYONE LOVES ROSES - BUT WHAT ABOUT THE COMMON FLOWER
EVERYONE loves to photograph roses! They're SO romantic!
But don't forget the common "unromantic" daylily beause:
1. You can purchase 2 or 3 plants for under $10
2. They spread easily if you grow them
3. The plants need very little care
4. Blossoms are large
5. The plants can create quite a focal point in your yard
6. They have no thorns!
Note about the image:
I wanted to take a common flower and make it "uncommon" by playing with colors.
So, I took a skirt I bought at a thrift store. (Remember the posting a few days ago about the green dress?)
The orange flowers and the skirt's colors complemented each other.
And an uncommon skirt and uncommon daylilies became something of worth.
Challenge for today: Make what is common into something of worth.
