This image was scanned from a slide I took in June, 1987, on the island of Bali in Indonesia.  I was one of a group of college professors who were going to China to teach for the summer.  We spent a few days in Bali before continuing our journey to China.

One afternoon a storm came up from the Pacific while I was along the beach.  The storm was quickly over, and I snapped this picture as the sun started breaking through the clouds again.

We have almost as many day lilies in our yard as we have roses. Star Struck has huge, beautiful yellow blossoms which light up a corner of our day lily bed.
