Today's Flowers

I call this very common lily a native day lily. I've also heard it called a ditch lily because many are seen growing in ditches around America.
Visit Luiz to sign Mr. Linky and see more flowers from around the world.

These grow in ditches in America?
Wow. Beautiful ditches. That is a gorgeous colour - very like the tiger lily which is that colour plus it has stripes going through it.

Very striking. Excellent shot.

Love those ditch lilies. I have gone on the side of the road and dug some out to put around my yard. They grow everywhere around here.

I posted a flower today or yesterday similar to this except mine is a hibiscus. This is a day lily or something similar to that I would guess and a nice shot of it too.

Craver Vii said...

I haven't heard them called ditch lilies before. Maybe they're not as common up here. Such a pretty flower to beautify lowly places.

Mike said...

Stunning colour Dot, and beautifuuly composed and framed.

What an impressive looking lily - gorgeous color! I would love to see these lilies growing in the ditches. Very nice photo!

PERBS said...

Looks like ones we called Tiger Lilies when I was a child.

The Birdlady said...

Very nostalgic for me - my grandmother had masses of these in front of her house.

diXymiss said...

Gorgeous, vivid color. Wish these grew in the ditches around here... (wistful sigh). We've got a plethora of wild blackberry vines!

AVCR8TEUR said...

That is a beautiful flower. It can liven up any ditch in my opinion.

Ferreira-Pinto said...

Fantastic lily and it's amazing colour.
Can't say I've already saw an orange lily ... it's simply and yet so beautiful.

Also enjoyed quite a lot your post about the little Indian mound.

Dick said...

Wow, it's burning my screen, wonderful color.

Susan Kelly Skitt said...

This flower is really AWSOME fantastic...!

Quint told me that you and Neva are 'hosting' the world-blog notice that under 'some post's' a spammer named "MALIK" is posting comments, you can recognise him by a lot of drwawing (in the comment) of a mouse and gitar, best is to delete the spam mail, he is active on many sites, do NOT go to the named websites.

I sign NOW as anonimous for my own sake.. but you know who I am;

Shannon said...

Very nice photo. I have these everywhere around my house. At least they look like these anyway. I want to dig some of them up and then out my garden a little, but I've been too lazy. LOL There is a lot of work waiting for me..

Becky and Gary said...

What a gorgeous shade of orange. The daylilies around here have long since gone. I posted a picture of a seed pod from one yesterday on my blog.

DeeMom said...

Connie said...
