Day lilies

Here on the cusp of June, day lilies begin to bloom.

This variety is named Border Lord.

Day lilies are a nice edible. Raw they taste like a sweeter version of lettuce. Buds make an impressive hors d'oeuvre stuffed with a cream cheese mixture and the Chinese use day lily buds in stir fries, calling them Golden Needles.
