I have mentioned in the past that my favorite summer fortnight back in New Hampshire are the two weeks that the orange day lilies are in bloom every July – generally between the Fourth of July and Bastille Day. Now in my second summer in Kansas, I have noticed that there are some of these lilies around but mostly cultivated and not really the kind that tend to be wild back home. So I was thrilled stumble upon this yesterday on my walk along the Indian Creek Bike and Hike Trail in Overland Park, KS. It truly made my heart sore.
