A Tale of two Easter lilies

On Easter Sunday, Easter lilies grace churches across the country. What happens to the lilies after the blooms are gone?

My mom took home two of the lilies and enjoyed them in her home until the blooms were spent. She was going to throw them away, but I decided to take them home.

I planted them in my garden in part sun (really, mostly shade). This was in May.

Now it's August and they've rewarded me with pretty flowers!

I don't know if they'll come up again next year, but I'm getting to enjoy them now.

Have a blessed weekend!
