Three Great Things about Sunday's Ride

Alchemy of wheatfields turning to gold
Tiger lilies rising like spotted suns
Leafy green coolness of tree-tunnelled lanes

  1. "Tiger lilies rising like spotted suns"

    Love this line.

    I was just admiring my own lilies yesterday evening and your words are the perfect description.

  2. I wonder if Tiger lilies are similar to our day lilies... I'm not getting many this year, but I do have a few yellow ones.

    And I was thinking about one of my rides over the weekend... the firetruck spraying the hose (from your next post) would have been SUCH a treat!!!

  3. Thanks Lolly! Deb - similar only in colour. Daylilies are more like irisis, I think, putting out a few blossoms at the end of a long stalk. Tiger lilies blossom all down the plant. I'm not explaining it very well. :)


I love comments! Speak on....
