There are some things you can count on – like summer always coming no matter how long and brutal winter feels. Day lilies being in bloom for the fourth of July is another. Some might snub their noses at the common orange day lily believing they are just way too – well common – to include in their garden. I appreciate their steadfast reliability. And doesn’t that just remind you of some of the most “important” people in our lives – the people who might not be the most exciting or interesting but that we can count on no matter what. Happy Independence Day!
