Thanks again Chari for hosting Sunday Favorites-such a fun and easy idea! I'm new to the blog world and don't have many posts yet but I will share a repost from last month. Thanks Chari for all your encouragment and kind words. You are the most gracious hostess. Here's my repost from April...hope you enjoy!
Anyone who knows me very well knows my favorite flower is the Stargazer Lily. My husband gave me my first potted Stargazer almost 20 years ago and he bought it at a grocery store flower department. I had never seen this variety of lily and I thought it was so tropical and exotic looking -it was love at first sight!
When it finished blooming I almost tossed it out until I noticed the care tag and the instructions said this lily could be potted outdoors as a perennial. I never expected it to live, but I planted it anyway ( just in case) and to my delight my grocery store lily not only came back but bloomed the following year. I was hooked! I now have them throughout my flower beds and in Oklahoma they bloom around the Fourth of July. We enjoy them so much and they are fantastic in a vase-just remember to cut the pollen off as each flower blooms if you bring them indoors. The aroma is strong so beware if you are allergic. They are reliable easy care lilies. You'll find us out in our garden on any given evening in July just "stargazing" !
Have a wonderful Sunday everyone....Miss Bloomers
