My favorite outdoor flowers are lilies - colorful and bold yet delicate and detailed. And my very favorite type of them might be the Daylily, which is a broad term for members of the Hemerocallis genus. The name comes from the Greek words ????? (h?mera) "day" and ????? (kalos) "beautiful". Daylilies are perennials, but each ephemeral flower lasts only 24 hours or so before it fades and is replaced by a fresh blossom. The result is a plant that looks different every day and blooms all summer.
Daylilies are often two-toned, and have queues of buds extending down the stem waiting for their moment of glory. Both elements translate into these two-layer lace- weight mitts. Each layer can be worn separately, but together they shine. Buttons at the cuff make a bold and detailed accessory sure to be a... ahem... perennial favorite.
