A day in the life

Of a day lily

We all do foolish things, but make sure you do them with enthusiasm.

Arranging a bowl of flowers in the morning can give a sense of quiet in a crowded day - like writing a poem or saying a prayer.            Anne Morrow Lindbergh

When you have only two pennies left in the world, buy a loaf of bread with one, and a lily with the other. Chinese Proverb

  15. This is a description of my grandson to a T:

    We all do foolish things, but make sure you do them with enthusiasm.

    He does everything with enthusiasm. You can never fault him about that.

  16. My favorite Lily, the Tiger Lily. At least that is what I think it is. I had a wonderful dog named Tiger Lily. Hope you have a super day.

  17. When I first looked, I thought that Duke had certainly changed a lot since the last time I was here, but Arlynda slapped some sense into me (according to her). She then informed me that they are actually some lovely pictures of a lily. By the way, please tell Duke I really appreciate how concerned he has been about me, and that you will be frying up a slab of bacon for him as soon as humanly possible.
