My Beloved Tiger Lilies



























These Long Island Tiger Lilies go way back. They were first transplanted from my grandmother's garden to my parent's garden and then to mine. I wait for them every year to make their appearance and they do so without fail. Are they not exquisite?

What a beautiful picture of a beautiful flower! I love tiger lilies. That is so neat that they were transplanted from your grandmother's garden, to your parents, to yours. I remember when I was a girl we had this type of flower in our yard.

Absolutely beautiful. and how nice that they've moved from one generation to the next. I wish I could garden. I have black thumbs. And that's the truth.
