My favorite Daylily without using “Poster Edges”
Apparently, Daylilies are very hearty plants. They have managed to survive and thrive in the horrible smoky conditions we have been having for the past 18 days.
For my Daylily finale, I decided to show what this photo looks like before applying my favorite creative filter “Poster Edges,” then showing what the same photo looks like after I apply the filter. This is also the same Daylily plant I featured a few days ago.
After applying “Poster Edges”
You can see that the filter darkens the background and gives it a totally different look.
I hope you have enjoyed my Daylily series. Feel free to comment on which one of these two versions you like best.
Have a great weekend!
My favorite Daylily, Auburn, California
As with all of the other Daylily photos I have posted, I don’t know the actual name of this one either. But, I can tell you that it is my favorite. It will also be the last one to bloom.
I may post a couple more variations of this one in the next few days, since it is my favorite.
Please check back later. Also, if you happen to know the name of it, please let my other readers and I know, by leaving a comment below. Thanks.
Purple Daylily on my deck #2
Believe it or not, this is the same Daylily plant I featured in my last post.
Which one do you prefer?

For this one, I decided to use one of PhotoShop’s creative filters, Poster Edges to give this shot a more artsy look. I also wanted it to look like it had been rained on, so I added the water drops.
Some of my nature photographer friends won’t like it, because it’s not a true nature photo. But, that’s okay. You can’t please everyone.
I don’t know the actual name of this Daylily either. When I bought it from the gal at the Auburn Garden Club plant sale, it had the name written on the pot. But, when I transplanted it, the name got away from me.
If anyone knows the name of this one, please let me know by leaving a comment. Thank you!
Orange Daylily on my deck, Auburn, California
Right now, I seem to have become obsessed with my Daylilies. They are really putting on a great show this year. This is the first season I have actually photographed them.
I don’t know what the actual name for this Daylily is. Perhaps someone with more experience than me can post the name of it in the comments section. That would be great!
My Daylilies will be blooming for awhile longer and I will be posting more photos of them. Be sure to check back soon!
Yellow Daylily (Hemerocallis) on my deck, Auburn, California
Daylilies are very hard to photograph, because they only bloom for a day. When I first started growing them a few years ago, I didn’t realize this. I should have known by the name. I hate to admit it, but it wasn’t until I had my first bloom that I figured it out! [click to continue…]
