Tiger Lily

I love the hearty beauty of the tiger lily. They grow free and strong in wild places yet are fragile, soft, orange starbursts along the pathways of life. These tiger lilies were growing along a river bank in Valley Forge, Pa. on our trip to Philly in June for our son’s graduation from seminary. Then in two more northern treks this summer for my nephew’s wedding in Va. and the birth of our second granddaughter in Philly in July, I saw them everywhere along the highways north and south. Maybe I was paying attention to them more than before, noticing them since having taken this picture, but I was amazed at how they survive the scorching sun. I am not much of a gardener but I would love to have these blooming all over my yard. Tiger Lilies2
