From the Archives: Flowers in Our Yard



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

Most of you know that we have roses in our yard, but we also have quite a few lilies that provide beautiful blossoms and nice fragrance as well. This lily is called Dizzy. I don't know how it got that name, but I sure do enjoy seeing it in bloom.

I have a similar looking beauty. Dizzy. Hmmm. There are so many names now of many hybrids. Even the most minute or unnoticable differences require a new name. It's hard to keep track of them all. :)

I like that lily, and I like its name. Both are fun.

Up here, my boxwoods, which stand more than 4 feet tall, are buried, so this vision of summer makes my evening!
