Trumpet lilies, that is. If you stop by our house at the right time in the summer, you are greeted by fragrant yellow lilies by the front steps.
|A hand-me-down from my mother's garden many years ago,|
these lilies reach more than four feet tall, so they do require staking.
We have been repainting the porch this summer, and I have enjoyed the occasional bursts of scent wafting from the lilies when a breeze blows. It makes the arduous task of scraping and painting a little bit sweeter.
|I wish you could smell them!|
