From the Ridiculous to the Sublime

If ever there was such a thing as an ugly flower, this has to be it. In the throes of death, the mother plant grows to obscene proportions and then dies. On the contrary this lily, which I forgot I had, has suddenly appeared where I expected another day lily. This is a flattering portrait of is really a pretty dull yellow, obviously related to the orange day lilies. They seem like poor relations to other, more beautiful lilies...........peasants demanding attention by virtue of their family ties...........but they are pretty in a more humble, unobtrusive way.
