Lilys...who doesn't love lilys???  There are so many varieties....I have lots and lots.....while I was out of town, my sister attended the area Garden Clubs plant sales...she bought  6 new day lilies for us to share....I planted mine yesterday...yummy names like Ocean Rain~Brocaded Gown~Southern Sunset~Scarlet Orbit~Pardon Me~and Designer Gown.....how fun...I in turn gave her two starts of a double white lilac~3 starts of my Pee Gee Hydranga~a new Iris I had just purchased and not yet planted called Edith Wolford...I have a habit of buying plants for names that mean something to me...my grandmother was Edith...I have a rose named "Bess" after my other grandmother "Bessie".....I also shared two Hosta's~ Blue Cadet and Christmas...and a start of Lobelia........
My card inspiration today is one of the Oriental Lilies newly planted this year...I saw these"paper" lilies on another blog.....made with the SU 5 Petal Flower Punch....are these fantastic or what.....love them!!!   Back tomorrow with another "inspiration from the garden!!!
