Buds of Hope ~ Just for Fun JUNE

Kim has a challenge for June, you can find the details here….. HAPPINESS.

I have many things to make me happy every single day. I was out looking at my garden this morning. We had a lot of rain the last couple of days. I noticed my Tiger Lily plants have buds. These lilies are so big, the size of your hand. And a deep burgundy color. They are a lot different from the yellow Day Lilies. I will show you the blooms when they finally open up. I was excited as I transplanted them last year and I see it was successful.

Tiger lily flowers (Lilium lancifolium or Lilium tigrinum) offer a tall and showy flower that you may remember from your grandmother’s garden. The tiger lily plant can reach several feet tall, and while the stems are usually stiff and sturdy, a slender stake occasionally helps provide an upright appearance and support for multiple flowers. They come is different colors. Mine are the burgundy.

I also learned this fact a few years ago. Even though many parts of the tiger lily are edible by people, the pollen is toxic, causing sleepiness and vomiting. Every part of this lily is poisonous to cats. We all need to know what is growing in our gardens.

Enjoy nature photography. Amateur self-taught photographer and love every minute of the photos from my yard and Dustin's garden. Sunset views from my deck are very peaceful to watch, capture and share. I have two cats, Brendel and the Dude. I share both special and funny moments I capture of them with you.

Also enjoy seeing and reading your posts from all over the world.
