Daylily

While out fishing and staring at the setting sun I realized that nature can provide the eye with some stunning colours. I then took a look in my own garden and I recognized the vivid colours of Daylilies. Daylilies are a hybrid of the genus Hemerocallis  whose name comes from Greek meaning “beautiful day”.

These cultivar flowers come in a wide variety of colour and form as they have been hybridized many times by horticulturalists around the world. Native to Eurasia this genus is popular world wide and there are some 60,000 registered cultivars.

About The Pal Guy

Ever since the moment I got my first camera I was bit by the “shutter-bug”. My love of nature has become a constant theme of my photography along with architecture, sights and destinations.
