This bloom from our lime yellow Day lilly is the last from this plant, for now at least Smile It started flowering in October last year and has faithfully provided colour every day until now.
Thanx to all for the comments and votes on my Red Dragonfly yesterday - a special thanx to Rob [ bobsblues ] and Graham [ digital_boi ] for their modifications - I really like what you have done Smile
Have a brilliant day Smile

Very similar to one I had (bought), but it, and all other lilies I've had, have only a short life, certainly nothing like blooming for four months, I like the wee bug peeking over the near petal Herman! Smile

A fine shot f this beautifully coloured lily, Herman: even at wide aperture the whole bloom is in focus but the b/g nicely softened.
