Oh Happy Day …

Several years ago we had purchased a lily for the garden and having planted it in the herbiary thinking it would be safe from the grazers, wrong!!! Each year, just as a bloom stalk appeared it was devoured. Of course the basils, sages and oreganos were left untouched.

This spring we thought it time to move the herbiary and thus the lily to would be moved. I moved it over with the callas in the chimney ruin garden and proceed to forget about it. Well that was till the other day when something caught my eye among the stone. There in all her glory, Madame Lily was beckoning to me to come take a closer look. I will admit to having forgotten what color the lily was even supposed to be. So when seeing it in bloom after all this time, it was a most wonderful surprise.
