Surprise Lilies for Starr Lillie

This is the sight all over east Tennessee right now.
One time I used one of my photographs of these lilies for my niece Starr Lillie,
without thinking about her middle name.


Now I think of her everytime I see them bloom.
Today is her daddy's birthday, but this post goes to Starr.


For those of you that don't understand why the name, I will explain.
In the spring the greenery shoots up with the daffodils, even appears to be a daffodil, but it never blooms. The greenery fades, along with the daffodils. Then late July or early August upshoots the flower stem, with buds aplenty.

Hope everybody is doing well, and has a blessed day.

You know what, I totally forgot about setting something up with you in TN this time. I could have done it too. I promise to get in touch with you next year. It will be around the same time of year. So keep that in mind. I'm sure my mom would love to meet you too, she is a knitter as well!
Gorgeous pictures as usual! I love Lillies, they are my fav flower!

Very beautiful lilies!! I have a few of these. They are also called 'Naked Ladies' because they pop up and bloom without foliage!

Love the color of those lilies... Your Starr Lillie will love seeing those flowers with HER name.....

Hugs,

Here in the Upper Midwest they're known as "majic lilies." Still it's always a surprise when they pop up out of the ground. :)
