Photo of the Day: A New Bloom

I planted a few lily bulbs last year, and they did ok at best. This year they grew to about four feet tall, and their blossoms are probably eight inches around. They’re huge…and gorgeous!

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?
