I posted a photo of daylily plants under my gas meter for a Nurturing Thursday entry in April and mentioned in the comments that I would take another picture when they were in bloom. They’re looking good today, and it’s bright and sunny after almost an entire day of rain yesterday, which has made the grass look nice and green too! Here’s the new photo:

Yellow daylilies blooming under my gas meter. 

Because the plants are thick and healthy, they haven’t needed much weeding this year. That’s also what happens with our own lives when we root out all those prickly mental weeds of negativity, fear, and bad habits—we’re healthier and have more energy for blooming, and there is no space for weeds to grow back!

Nurturing Thursday was started by Becca Givens and seeks to “give this planet a much needed shot of fun, support and positive energy.” Visit her site to find more Nurturing Thursday posts and a list of frequent contributors.


  1. I love yellow daylilies — they always bring me smiles! Thank you for remembering, and sharing with Nurturing Thursday — I love your analogy with weeding! 😀

  2. So beautiful they are! Like sunshine itself…you’ll not have a cloudy day as long as these lilies are in bloom 🙂
