daylilies begin

daylilies begin
to bloom in sun
all the years
they grow, flower,
wait through winter
and return again

Karl has taken great care with the hosta and lilies through the years. They grow close to our old house. We keep the path to the back door clear, which means a few bouquets for the house. We have a well, and do not water the gardens. What is there grows well.
