And the Daylilies* Look Lovely Today

I took this pic as I stepped out of the Barnacle onto its wide porch overlooking Biscayne Bay, and was mesmerized by these beautiful daffodils daylilies*, the only two in bloom. Their color was deep, rich and bright, as if they had drunk the sunlight pure and filled their petals with it.

*I was originally told these were daffodils and I believed it since I know next to nothing about flowers. In a comment, Darrel corrected me, pointing that these are daylilies, a fact corroborated by a quick Google Image and Wikipedia search. This, however, ruined my original reference to the song by The Cranberries (Daffodil Lament), but it's a small price to pay for increased knowledge. Thanks, Darrel!
