Each year my friend, Pat, brings in daylilies from her garden for my birthday. I was out of the office last week, so she brought in a beautiful surprise today--one maroon and two black daylilies. Since they're such a wonderful treat, I wanted to capture their beauty outside the office, but the trip home was difficult and they began to wilt and droop in the hot car. I tried to revive them with a sprinkle of water, but my efforts were in vain. They soon shriveled and died. Thanks for my sweet gift of joy for a day, Pat.
