Photo of the Day: Pink Thumb

My mom gave me a bag of lily bulbs from Aldi for my birthday, and since they were cheap, we weren’t sure if they’d do much of anything. They’ve been slowly growing for a couple of months with just a few small leaves, and then within the last few days huge buds formed on a couple of the plants. And then all of a sudden … this gorgeous flower appeared! Maybe I’m on my way to having a green thumb?
