Gardening where the sidewalk ends

Lovely Lily September 3, 2008

Saw this lone tiger lily (?) in a parking strip near our neighborhood. It was looking quite fierce out there!

    Megan and Philip –

    We all survived the first day and it’s all gone better than expected. Phew! I think it’s as hard on the parents as the kids, and maybe harder. 🙂


    teijatar –

    I used to have a lot of lilies in my previous garden, I keep meaning to find a good spot for some here. I especially love the really fragrant ones like Casablancas.
