    Day lily... what a fine description of the sun! Makes me think the sea is swallowing it whole. Sorry I haven't been very responsive lately... been busy at the stadium!

    Thanks Russell...it popped into my wannabe haiku head while I was scrambling around securing the yard for a sudden storm last night. I laugh now at that phrase after that contest! I'll always be a wannabe but don't care! Haha.....I'll just keep on trying! Thanks for your support
