Planted a couple of years ago, the day lilies are now really getting established and flowering well. They definitely seem to bring a touch of the exotic to the flower beds, but alongside them is another plant getting settled in - I don't know what it is, it must be self set, and in part I'm inclined to think it's a weed. It's bright and yellow though, so I'm letting it stay.
Edit - instead of searching through a pile of gardening/wild flower books I did the modern equivalent and asked Twitter. where someone identified my 'visitor' as goldenrod. Apparently it's a common herbaceous border plant but modern varieties have showier flowers - I suspect mine isn't one of those. I'm glad I decided to let it stay :)
