Friday's Lily

When we were growing up, on Pottruff Rd. my parents had a huge garden, with fruit trees to boot. We had apple trees. We were so sick of picking apples, bushels and bushels of apples. My mother made apple soup, apple cake, apple jam, you name it we had apples in it. Well those trees are long gone and I must say I could sure go for a bowl of apple soup. I do make the apple cake often enough, I don't do the jam. So when I spotted this lily in the garden center "apple blossom" I decided I didn't have room for an apple tree this will have to do. I think it is a lovely substitute for the orchard and a whole lot less work. No soup for you today.

I'm enjoying your garden. Your day lilies are spectacular. Such large blooms. All those car parts must be sending some good vibrations into the surrounding earth. Perhaps all the rain is helping too!

Happy gardening. The Rose of Sharon that you gave me years ago is now about 12 feet tall and sporting it's little purple blooms like ladies in ballgowns. I think of you also when I see my Polish Princess clematis. I cheer her on as she climbs and reaches the top of the fence!
