A richly-colored yellow lily curls back her her strong petals in welcome to the bees and butterflies and other insects that are so important to her and to us all here on Planet Earth. Seen on a warm June morning, the slanting rays of the early sunlight catch her tall, vibrant golds like a beacon of hope and leave the rest of the garden still in darkness.
One of the several varieties of lilies my husband and I planted in the perennial gardens at our old house. This one was always a show stopper. I miss her and her siblings, especially at this time of year. One of the reasons we moved was the 2-acres and all the gardens were becoming a bit of a chore and my husband and I admitted, that the longer we lived there, the bigger the chore would become. (We’re not spring chickens anymore ) … but I find myself wanting to plant more and more of my old favorites here at the new house.
Sadly (or not) there isn’t nearly as much gardening space, so that’s a bit of an issue …
Do you have a favorite flower in your own garden? I’d love to hear about it!!!
As always, a click into the picture should take you to my website where your mouse can hover over the image and see the details … I especially liked how the tips of those little pokey things came out. What are they called again??? Stamens, I think??
