I took this photo yesterday in the late afternoon. I don't know what it is about this summer, but I'm obsessed with being outside as much as possible. I'm also extremely observant of what all the plants are doing in my yard. Things like what's blooming; what should be blooming but isn't; what looks best at what time of day...and so on. The daylilies have been spectacular this year and July is their month to shine. I felt compelled to take this photo because I'm noticing that soon the blooming period for the daylilies will come to an end. It makes the time in the late afternoon when these lilies are backlit by the sunlight precious.
