Beauty in the flower garden
This day lily has a history. 31 years ago when we were planning our move to Arizona I didn't think I could ever grow lilies of any kind here. I dug up my orange double ruffled day lily and gave it to my Momma. Years later on a visit back to see my folks I commented on "her beautiful lilies". Momma reminded me that they were actually mine, I dug up a clump, wrapped them in damp newspaper and a plastic bag brought them to my home in Arizona and they thrive here!
Even with the temps in the high 100's this past week it was such a joy seeing these hardy perennials smiling in the sun . . . Over at Julie's!!!
