My garden has a plant that probably is 50 or more years old


Tiger Lillies

Shyly again unfolding from their buds
Every year on long and fragile stalks
They sway in brilliant orange and stripe
Waving gayly at passers by

History and continuity matter, as evidenced by this shy plant and gentle poem.

I like this bright, ebullient imagery. Terse yet very effective!

Wonderful! The fifty-year-old plant displaying perennial rejuvenescence. Maybe there's a lesson there for me? Hmm...
