These daylilies are not in my yard, I found them along the road the other day. They are a slightly different variation. Daylilies were used in ancient China even before the development of their written language. The earliest reports show they were used as food. The flower buds were tasty, digestible, and nutritious. The root and crown were used as a pain reliever. So it became part of the Chinese tradition to use this flower as both food and medicine. Nowadays, the number of daylilies with official names is more than 35,000, and growing. Now listen closely, because the daylilies have something very important to tell us. Each flower only blooms for one day, then dies. But there is a real plus to this. In even the heaviest storms, only that day's flower is ruined. The plant itself can withstand very heavy storms, so the next day there are still pretty blooms. It truly lives only one day at a time, and because of that, it withstands the worst weather and lives to show us.
"Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of it's own." Matthew 6:34
