You see, I was worried when I came home from vacation what I would find. Would the plants be watered well? Would any be dead? What would be blooming? Anything? What about the weeds. Would they have taken over everything?
What would my garden look like?
These questions kept going through my mind. Last year my garden looked so bad when I returned from vacation, it was hard to take. The thought of how my garden looked through last year's drought made me lily livered.
I was worried.
Could I face my garden? What would be there? These questions kept running through my mind.
So, when I got home, I unloaded the car. And out of habit, I looked out the window toward the garden.
And what I saw took my breath away.
The lilies were blooming!
I couldn't wait to go outside and walk around my garden!
The lilies are blooming! Oh, what gorgeous flowers they are!
I love roses (duh!), and hydrangeas, and many other flowers. But the lilies - oh, the lilies! - are regal and splendid and magnificent and amazing!
I may be lily livered. But I'm also lily hearted, and lily eyed and lily everything else! They are all I can think of now!
Because the lilies are blooming!
