THE DAILY POST WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLANGE – OFF SEASON

This week, we challenge you to show us what off-season means to you. It could be the shuttered ice-cream stand in the Southern Hemisphere where winter is drawing near. If you live in the Northern Hemisphere it might your snowmobile peeking out from beneath its tarp, or your Christmas decorations arranged neatly in the attic. Feel free to interpret this theme loosely — consider objects at rest and unmoved, places that are stagnant or abandoned. For more information, go here!

When you think about lilies as a seasonable flower, You probably think about spring and Easter lilies. Around my garden, the day lilies need a little bit of summer to burst into bloom. And that’s what we had this week with a lot of sun and temps reaching for the mid-90’s. This made the June blooms burst open in the front flower beds.

The first blooms were monochromatically all white. But hopefully the yellow, red and purple lilies will be coming up in the next weeks. Sometimes Mom Nature is a little slow painting the colors on her blossoms.
