“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.”
― Lao Tzu
As the summer continues, the plants begin to mature and change form. Some wither and dry up, others go to seed, while some continue to flourish till the air cools. This day lily was pretty much the start of my journey down the road of fine art floral photography and has opened a whole new creative world for me.
I thought it had stopped blooming about a week ago, but to my surprise, it had one blossom left to share. It’s quite mature and this image shows two seed pods beginning to develop as well as the ‘stubs’ where blossoms used to be.
