40 Years!!

I thought I should post something since it is August already!! Hard to believe the year is going by so quickly. I was cleaning things up in the kitchen this morning and had a pleasant surprise when I looked out toward the pond. They Egyptian Lily was blooming. This thing might have another name, but I think that is correct. It has several more sets of blossoms. I was glad it survived the hail.
The other photo is of a candy lily. I raised this from seed several
years ago and have not seen any seed like it since that time. They are a very dainty little flower. They come in pink, yellow, and red/orange. Their foliage is similar to the foliage of an iris.
I was cleaning the kitchen because my high school classmates are here this weekend for our 40th class reunion, my how the time flies!!! Some of them came out to our home last night for a get together. It was fun seeing a number of people that I only see at these gatherings. I am enjoying them a little more, must be my age!


  1. Sounds like you all had a great time. Your flowers are beautiful.

  2. Susan, I've had a volunteer Iris like plant volunteer in the circle where I planted a young Dogwood tree last year. It bloomed twice recently and it looks just like your candy lily. I've never heard of them before. I'm excited to have one. Betty Ann
