This year the day lily season has lasted for months in southern Wisconsin.

This pale peach colored lily has streaks of yellow which are nicely highlighted by the evening sunlight. Photographed at the University of Wisconsin Test Gardens in Madison.

About Bo Mackison

I'm a photographer, book-artist, traveler, naturalist, and creator of the Contemplative Creatives Journey, An Online Workshop and Community and Desert Wisdom Cards and Workshops. Though often not well known, I find the desert a welcoming place - a healing space. Its mysteries and gifts transformed me several years ago. Since that first encounter, I return again and again to fill my well in what most people think of as a desolate region. I'd love to share my desert discoveries and wisdom with you. Please subscribe to receive my five part mini email course The Gifts of the Desert. It's my gift to you.

  4. Simple and delightful.

  5. It was great to have this beauty be the first thing I looked at on my computer this morning. We are past day lilies on CA Central Coast but we have some nice ones in a vase in our office. Thanks for this one. it is beautiful.
