Last month, I had a chance to visit the Daylily Mountain in Eastern Taiwan with my husband. The whole mountain was full of daylily flowers in blossom. The orange daylily flower is a traditional dish in Taiwan. The flowers are very beautiful, but people can only see them blooming in July and August. Unfortunately, there were many typhoons in July and August this year. The typhoons disrupted the flowering period, so that we had to postpone our schedules.
Plans can never catch up with changes. No matter how perfect plans you have, the right time and right weather are always much more influential. We have to rely on the weather in our daily life. It seems to be an inevitable situation for us living in the 21 century.
I took these 2 photos of daylily flowers just at the right moments. After taking the photos, the sky suddenly became overcast with clouds. It was very impressive. Time is fleeting so we must treasure it.
