Lilies

I'm highly allergic to Stargazer Lilies. We just bought a house in January, and this spring, a multitude of lilies began sprouting all over the yard. I've been anxiously waiting to see what kind they are. Today one bloomed.

I was glad it wasn't a stargazer, but I didn't know exactly what it was. So I Googled "orange lily" and this is what Wikipedia says.

The Orange Lily or Fire Lily is a lily species native to Europe. When offered as a gift, the Orange Lily also signifies death to the recipient.

In a day or two, there will be about 10 blooming. My husband's crazy ex-wife is getting a beautiful bouquet of lilies.

Hi, I just came upon your blog from The Doc Whisperer. Nice posts. I'm going to blogroll you, if that's ok. I was sold after reading your post on fibromyalgia awareness. You are one brave lady. :)
