This is the tiniest lily in my yard. A Blackberry Lily brought from Washington DC. We went to visit Mount Vernon while I was in DC years ago and I saw this little lily growing there. As we were leaving, I noticed that you could buy a little plant. I bought it and wrapped it in a wet paper towel and then in a plastic baggy for the trip back to Illinois. It was planted in my garden and thrived there. When I was moving, this was one of the plants that I wanted to bring with me. So, now it grows here in Byron. I wait for it every year. Such a tiny bloom that later on will have a seed pod that resembles a blackberry. Shiny cluster of black seeds. I like to bring this little flower in for a tiny bouquet.
I need to go to the grocery today. It won't be a chore because the weather is perfect. I don't know how most feel about this summer, but I am loving it. Cool mornings to get things done in the garden and warmer afternoons...but not hot and humid.
I better get going....I may come back later.
