Every year I look forward to lily time, and these are my favorite. I don’t know their real name. In our family, these are Grandma’s Tiger Lilies.
This is Grandma in 1930 at age 18. I see my mom in her.
This is Grandma and Grandpa holding a baby me in 1963.
And this is Grandma with her siblings in 1978. They are all gone now.This picture was taken on Grandma’s farm in Fawn Grove, PA. This is where the tiger lilies came from. My mom took some (as she is wont to do) and made them a part of her yard. When I moved here 22 years ago, she shared, as she is also wont to do.
They are tall; many of them are well over my 5 feet 7 inches.
I’ve planted them everywhere.
I want to have plenty to share with my children. And grandchildren . . .
