Day lilies grow all over the sides of the roads in New England during this part of the summer. But, I haven't seen any lilies in this spot this year, so I've been wondering where they went.
That is, until I pulled up to my own yard and looked over to admire my gorgeous flower bed. That is when it hit me.
My mom was living with us last summer and she and I would work in the yard together. On one such occasion, I believe I mumbled something about wishing I had the nerve to go with gloves and a shovel under the cover of darkness and dig up those day lilies on that hill, so I could transplant them to my own flower bed. And, until they bloomed earlier this month, I'd totally forgotten. That is exactly what she did!
