Lily ~ Macro Monday

Sharing a photo from my spring garden. Tiger Lily is a favorite flower. The blooms are as big as your hand. The butterflies and hummingbirds love the pollen. These plants are perennial, meaning they return each spring to bloom again. My favorite kind of plant in the garden.

Tiger lilies are poisonous to cats. Thankfully my cats are indoor only. The stray cats seem to know which plants to stay away from.

This photo is for today’s Macro Monday challenge. More little things to share with you.

    • The most dangerous and potentially life-threatening lily ingestions by cats involve lilies belonging to the genera Lilium (true lilies) and Hemerocallis. Examples of some of these toxic lilies include Asiatic, Easter, Japanese Show, red, rubrum, stargazer, tiger, Western, and wood lilies (Lilium species) and daylilies (Hemerocallis species). Even small ingestions (such as less than 1-2 petals or leaves) – even the pollen or water from the vase – may result in severe, acute kidney failure.
