The other day I’m feeling a little off, like I need something to get my imagination going. I’m sure you know the feeling. I’m having a just fine day but I need a little more enthusiasm. We’ve just come back from a big hike so I don’t need exercise and it’s too early for a beer. I need some colour.
Every time we head west on the QEW we pass a day lily farm beside the highway. There’s lots of color there. Off I go, I introduce myself and tell him I want to take some pictures. He leads me to his most colorful lily patch. I shoot some 360 photos like this one:
Do you like lilies? This place has between five and ten thousand different varieties of day lilies, all available for purchase. Prices start at twenty dollars and there are hundreds for that amount.But there’s also a few at $100, up to five hundred dollars per plant.
What do you get for $500? You get a blue day lily. Just so you know a “blue” lily isn’t blue at all, it’s more mauve or purple and certainly very pretty. “Worth every dime” they say.
I feel better now.
Mare, Angel and I are out for a walk along the Welland Canal this morning. On our way back the “Homer Street” bridge went up as we were passed by a Laker. All a pretty normal scene for us locals but certainly not something you would see many other places.
Later on, we hooked up with good friends Bruce and Diane. They took us cruising in their bright red Mustang convertible. What a blast! We took the back roads out to Crystal Beach for a lunch on a patio on the Erie shore. Yes, we waved at Buffalo New York while we were there.
“A girl in the convertible is worth five in the phone book.” said Bruce
Thank you for your time and attention.
