I Am A Farmer

Posted by Judy Taylor on

Okay, I have to admit......I do not have a green thumb when it comes to growing flowers.  But having grown up on a cotton farm where we grew all our own food, I do have a green thumb when it comes to growing vegetables.

One time I looked up the definition of a gardener.  And I learned that a gardener is someone who plants and cares for green and flowering plants.  But it said a person who professionally grows vegetables is not a gardener, but a farmer.  So having raised vegetables all my life for my family and friends and neighbors, I proudly dub myself a farmer.

But even though I am not a gardener, I do enjoy my daylilies every summer.  I caught these shots this week as the daylilies begin to bloom in my wagon and around the circle driveway.

I love daylilies, not only because they are so colorful and beautiful, but because they grow all by themselves.  Even if you are not a gardener, like me, you can grow daylilies.

Daylilies may be the most carefree of all flowering perennials. The plants grow quickly and are long lived. They thrive in almost any type of soil, will grow in sun or shade, and are rarely troubled by insect pests or disease.

Daylilies are known for their toughness, but they also dazzle with their big, colorful flowers. Blooming starts in midsummer and continues into early fall, with new blossoms opening each day.  Mine are just starting to bloom and they are so pretty and I enjoy them so much.  

So....no I am not a gardener, but apparently God is.  Because He brings my beautiful daylillies back each and every year for me to enjoy His beautiful creation.
