Taking a walk through the garden, I was amazed to discover the spider lily. Early in the spring, I had purchased the bulbs at Walmart. Planted them. Letting nature take her time.
Yesterday, my grandchild and I decided to take flower pictures. We are creating a mixed media book for the photos. We painted the cardboard pages. These were shaped books from Michaels I had purchased for a dollar. She choose the flower. I chose a star.
We painted all five of the pages. Hers are spotted, sparkled, and vibrant. Mine are covered in papers on one side and painted on the other. After the rain, we carefully made our way outside with the camera.
Among the blue hydrangea, a transplant from my inlaws at Chapel Hill, the spider lily resides. She casts a sweet fragrance.
Pages finished, pictures taken, we decided to wait until her next week long visit to finish our books. The spider lily however glorifies the garden.
