Macro Monday - Day Lily

The common Day Lily is a hardy perennial which can be grown nearly everywhere.   It spreads from tuberous roots and once established becomes a permanent resident.  They benefit from occasional thinning.  My mother-in-law had beds of these in different colors all around her home.  If someone admired them she would take her spade and dig up a "start" for them.  Varieties number in the thousands.
