I was so happy to see this bloom when I went to take the garbage out this morning. I haven't had tiger lily bloom for at least two years because the scarlet lily beetle devoured my lilies.
Why is this beautiful?
My mom gave me these tiger lilies many years ago. I think she split the plant in her yard and brought some out for me. My mom knew so much about gardening and I miss asking for her advice. Goole just isn't the same.
Even though I only lived in Saskatchewan for the first few years of my life, my family is all from there so the lily represents family and connection to me.
I am so happy the beetles didn't totally kill off the lily after two years of infestation. The tiger lily is resilient just like all of us. Just keep growing.
