Although Betsy and I now have many daylilies in our yard, my Dad gave us our first ones shortly after we bought this house.  He didn’t know the name of the daylily, so we simply call it Dad Adams in honor of him.

The picture on which this drawing was based is shown below.

While we have many beautiful lilies in our yard, I thought this black-and-white photo does a great job of bringing out the raindrops clinging to the blossom after a short summer shower.
