“My wife worked had this past spring to beautify the area around our home. She and the kids pulled weeds and cleared out the perfect area in front of our house to plant some daylilies. Finally one morning we awoke and the blooms greeted us with a warm orange glow. It had been raining and the drops were still clinging to the petals. I quickly seized the opportunity to capture this moment,” says Justin Price.

Simple Spring Beauty
“I took this photo in the spring. Every year I have these flowers growing in my garden along the driveway. I’m not sure if they are a weed flower or not, but they are pretty in the spring so I let them grow. I really enjoy using my camera to capture the beautiful reflection of the flowers in a water drop,” says Rita Kurtz.

Finding Peace in Flowers
“My mother used to grow beautiful roses, and one of her favorites was the Peace rose. When I was establishing my own garden, I couldn’t find a Peace rose but came across this Golden Peace, which is almost identical. One summer it had spectacular blooms. This photo after a rain has always been one of my favorites,” says Susan Terry.

“A few years ago, I was out on a summer morning photographing daylilies to enter in our local Daylily Club photo contest. I took this photo at Old Prairie Town Botanical Gardens in Topeka, Kansas, where I live. This variety is Treasure of the Southwest. I think it is unique because it has water droplets on the petals,” says Mary Zeller. Check out beautiful butterfly pictures you HAVE to see.
