A Star Is Born

Here's another contestant for the Aunt Julie Lily of the Century Award. It's called a Stargazer Lily, and Auntie J. loves this flower for both its beauty and its scent. I think we should award Aunt Julie a prize for photography, too, don't you?


I have to say, Aunt Julie has the patience of a saint when it comes to using her Green Thumb! I just spent all day separating and transplanting day lilies--gardening defnitely is a Labor of Love!

Gorgeous! I want some of those.

I had no idea we were neighbors! Glad you stopped over! Also glad Brett didn't come to the Vikings. We really didn't need the chaos over here. ;-)
