Common Daylilies

I know they are a dime a dozen and grow wild in the ditches and along fences and at old farm sites. I know they bloom for a very short time, unlike modern selections. I know they are considered common and coarse and weedy. But they reside in a soft spot in my heart and I find them beautiful and they hold many sweet memories for me. To me there is nothing common about common daylilies.

How's it going over there? I saw you got a bunch of hail and stuff yesterday! Hope all is well, as usual we got squat...but there was some nice cloud coverage as my kids picked weeds out of my neighbor's yard...
