Lily




 
 











I have at least 3 different varieties of Lily’s growing in my yard. This particular variety I dug up from my mom and dad’s property after mom passed away. I do not know the variety; if anyone could help me out with this information, I would appreciate it.
According to Wikipedia, “Lilium is a genus of herbaceous flowering plants growing from bulbs. Most species are native to the temperate northern hemisphere. They comprise a genus of about 110 species in the lily family (Liliaceae). They are important as large showy flowering garden plants. Additionally, they are important culturally and in literature in much of the world. Some species are sometimes grown or harvested for the edible bulbs. The species in this genus are the true lilies. Many other plants exist with "lily" in the common English name, some of which are quite unrelated to the true lilies.”
Flowers are a gift from God, please take time to enjoy them.
