Word-Filled Wednesday & Outdoor Wednesday – Daylilies

Today’s post is for both Word-Filled Wednesday and Outdoor Wednesday.



Some months ago I shared this photo and text on WFW. Now, with spring all around I thought I’d share it again.


Why take ye thought for raiment?
Consider the lilies of the field how they grow;
they toil notneither do they spin.
Matthew 6:28



The daylily is a fascinating plant because each bloom lasts for just one day. Isn't it great that God provided such beauty for our enjoyment!

For more Word-Filled Wednesday please visit Amydeanne.


Here are some other views of the daylilies in the garden last summer:



I love perennials since you plant them once, and they come back each year. It's great to look forward to seeing them blossom during their season.

I love perennials too! More so each year when they pop back up again. It's so much fun to be able to just fill in with a few annuals and have a gorgeous look.

Have a great day!

I like Daylillies because of their flowers but also because they stay green most of the year. And one can always share them with others.

Your daylilies are gorgeous. I too love them but am cutting back as they take so much deadheading.

Word filled Wednesday is new to me...great idea as well.
