The Lily Garden

lilgardenI have to say our lilies are were looking great this year. That is until the thunderstorm that came through a couple of days ago and knocked off some of the blooms. I'm glad I took this photo when I did.

Can you believe we brought these plants with us eleven years ago when we moved to Durham from Los Angeles? We had these growing around our house there, so we decided to bring a few plants with us to remember our old garden. My husband first had them in pots but they weren't doing so well. We were down to three plants when he finally decided to put them in the backyard and see how they will fare. Lo and behold, they took off! We now have probably over a hundred plants and still growing every year. They provide color in the garden but they also serve as a privacy fence for us since they are so tall. They make a nice border to the garden, and a nice reminder to our old house.

Gardens are always a welcome retreat from the hustle bustle of life. Kung may space lang sa pad, malamang may mga nakatanim ring flowering plants and cacti dun.

Magandang tanim! magandang bulaklak.
It reminds me, how intelligent the Creator to create a thing like that.
Buti ka pa may garden, huhuhu!
