We saw some beautiful lilies when we were shopping last spring – so pretty that Carol said we should get them. We enjoyed them for several weeks, and then we enjoyed the beautiful foliage for months. By mid-winter they were history, but Carol put the root system into a larger pot and kept it watered. This spring we were delighted to see some new green sprigs popping up, and by early April we had a full display of beautiful green foliage on our back patio. One day I saw a colorful tip coming up through all the green leaves, and then one after another came peeping up. By the week after Easter we had a gorgeous showpiece on our back patio. Here it is.
