Daylily Haiku Thursday | Diamond Dusting

sparkling bits of light
twinkling at me (teasing me)
to look more closely.

This is H. 'Navajo Princess' (Hansen, 1992) seen at an exhibition show in Springfield, Illinois many years ago.  I still come back to this photo when I need a good example of diamond dusting in daylilies.  Click here to see the official AHS definition for "diamond dusting" and see other photo examples of this very elusive and desirable characteristic.  This daylily also has a previous Stout Silver Medal in its pedigree - 1994's winner, H. 'Janice Brown.'

With the inches and inches of glittering snow outside, I needed to see something else that sparkled.  I hope you enjoy this one!
