From “Afternoon on a Hill” by Edna St. Vincent Millay:
I will be the gladdest thing
Under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers
And not pick one.
Right now we have several types of daylillies in bloom: orange daylily; stella d’oro; and two I don’t know the names of but I think they are of the “carousel princess” variety. We also have shasta daisies, coneflowers (echinacea), and some gloriosa daisies that I think are wildflowers but I leave them alone because they’re pretty. Also, honey bees!
