I love to see daylilies growing alongside highways. They seem to have attitude, a sense of “I’ll grow anywhere!”. These particular flowers were not found growing along a roadside, but beside my long-neglected pond. They have a similar attitude here and bring a bit of color and beauty to what is otherwise a green mess of weeds surrounding a mosquito breeding ground. Perhaps the sight of them will encourage me to rehab the pond and plant new things to accompany the daylilies. Who knows, maybe I’ll even get more fish. Until there are new koi, this will be the only bit of orange among the rocks.
