One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

Lilies and daylilies perk up the entrance to China Valley
Lilium lancifolium (middle) and Hemerocallis fulva var. disticha (which differs from the species in that the perianth tubes, that portion of the corolla where the petals are joined, is longer than what is typical for the species). Wow.
It was hot today; 97F for hours this afternoon. These guys don't care though; they laugh at heat.
