Lone Tiger

For only the second time in the five years we've lived in this house, one lone Tiger Lily has bloomed beside our driveway. What a sweet surprise it's sudden appearance was to me this morning as I was leaving for work! I didn't plant it--it's a remnant from the days when an old lady owned and lived in this house and enjoyed tending flowers. I always take a moment to send a mental "thank you" to this long-dead woman when something pretty pops up in the yard. Tiger lilies are among my very favorite midsummer flowers.
