Red Seedling Daylily


Red Seedling Daylily
Hemerocallis
(hem-er-oh-KAL-iss)

Quite happy to have this one show up in e box of seedlings I bought this spring.

For Ruby Tuesday since it kind of Mary’s neighborhood. Rapid Mon and Jockey N. Terracciano in the 4th Race at Belmont Park Queens, New York. Track was fun. Loved they had no apparent photographic restrictions. After ‘my’ horses finished last in three races in a row it was time to go.


Work of the Poet/ Ruby Tuesday


Number 9 (Call Tiger) finishes 8th, only because there was only 8 horses.

The day lily is gorgeous. Nice of that jockey to dress up in ruby red for you. Looks like a fun day!

I love that variety of day lily. Unfortunately our home is a darker brick and they don't show very well against that backdrop. So we stay with the yellow ones. Love the photo though.

Been a long time since I have been to a horse race. We live near a track. Must go sometime.

That lily is gorgeous! Such a beautiful palette of red...

And those horses- you've captured the moment, the action and the mood with this one.

The lily is absolutely gorgeous so rich in color. I suppose if everyone could pick a winner every time there'd be no fun in racing. Better luck next time.

Actually I like the shot of he white flowers just below this entry. IT has a surreal quality to it that is very alluring.
