Golden Memories

 There is nothing sunnier or brighter than yellow daylillies in the middle of nowhere, in June. The green grass is lush around them, adding to their brightness. This wild bunch is in an abandoned farming community that was flooded to build a dam 60 years ago. They stand in quiet solitude to the vibrant community that once thrived in this valley. The barns, covered bridges and cemetaries were all removed before the area was flooded. All that is left are a dozen bronze location markers and this wild group of yellow daylillies.
