Wait for the Surprising Result

Probably I wouldn't have tried the day lily flowers as a print subject but a few years ago when I was trying botanical sketching I pressed some red day lilies on the page of my sketchbook where I had been drawing them. The print was amazing the next day when I opened the book. The red day lilies are not out yet so I wondered what i would get with the orange ones which I have just had to reduce in number. The flowers don't last very long but they are abundant and you can use the buds in salads - they have a nutty taste. The leaves are from the Vietnamese mint. I don't use these for culinary purposes but I have found they press well. All will be revealed tomorrow
