My memory tells me that I purchased these fancy daylilies the same time as the stargazer lilies showcased last time and the fact that they're planted next to each other supports that supposition; I evidently purchased these, as best as I can tell, in 2014; I do have some pix of flowers from 2016 but it's this year, after some fairly aggressive soil amendment (&, to be sure, plain ole fertilizing) that they've really done well.
There were actually two plants, which I divided when I removed them from the pot, and this one has a more dramatic eye and paler outer foliage.
Though I do strive to make attractive photos, the driving theme behind a good deal of my photography is reference shots for the art I hope someday to make (which at this point I have to admit is unlikely ever to happen, but I just keep collecting the images...aspiration and hope in action, I guess.)
This is kind of a fun composition: the sort of thing that would be perfect to use as a mucha-inspired composition.
The picture below was originally part of the stargazer post and so I include it even though I don't think either the colour or composition is as successful as the others:
This picture was taken on 27th aug, with a slightly yellower cast to the WB. Honestly, it's probably more accurate, but I like the others better.
