I'm a bit old to be starting out in life again, but that's where I am. Sadly. Or gladly. It's where I am. Come along. Watch the fun. Inch by inch, row by row, gonna make this garden grow.

Some of the colors of the lilies

Some of the colors of the lilies in my yard have really amazed me. Some of them have already died off - there was a pale shrimp colored one with a yellow throat that died back really quickly.

There are, of course, the chrome yellow ones.

And there's the blood-orange one in the backyard with the deep yellow throat.

There's also one that would have been the yellow/orange, orange/yellow crayon in the old Crayola box.

After all is said and done, I can't pick a favorite, but I do love the scent of this pretty, impossibly pale lavendar phlox. It has a light, powdery fragrance, and as my bedroom window sits right above it, it puts me to sleep and wakes me up with its perfume.

All in all, it is how it all comes together that pleases me most.

Yeah, well all of these people who comment on how nice your garden is, and how this is that flower and that one is this, and blah blah blah, have absolutely NO idea how UNGARDEN-LIKE you have been all your life! Hello..... grass? flowers? "what's that" is more like it! Just another testament to the Palmieri woman's ability to adjust, adapt, accept and learn a new art, no matter how set in our ways we may seem! This is an outrageous garden! More-so because of who you are and how you grew up! ;-)
