Hello Dear Blog Peeps:
It's pouring rain as this is written. We've had a lot of rain so far this summer.
Sometimes I wish some could be sent to California and other places experiencing drought.
A few weeks ago, while supermarket shopping, lilies were for sale outside. A sign stated they were $8.00 each so two of them ended up in the cart.
On the sides of the lilies are stickers that read "Sunny Grenada."
Every day while passing them on my way to the front door, I'd whisper, "Hi girls. Hope you are doing well" or "Hi girly girls. You look pretty already." Naturally, I always hoped they would bloom.
Lo and behold, the buds starting getting puffier. Finally, two days ago, some of the blossoms bloomed!
Oh, the glorious fragrance coming from those two humble plants wafts through the air, filling the entire small front porch with loveliness.
"Thank you, sweet lilies."
The best part is there are many more blooms to come.
Alas, yesterday at the super, stargazer lilies (my absolute fave) were for sale out front.
Haven't bought one yet ($14.95) but I might take some of the grocery money, go back and get one!
It counts to buy food for the soul, doesn't it?
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LILY?
