Here's some more lilies. And one of my roses decided to bloom. Constance, have you seen the black lilies?

I've heard something simillar before:

"Once you get the grease under your nails, it never comes out." A 70 year old man told me that about 10 years ago. And it rings true to this day.

Here's an oriental lily from my garden...
Miss Connie...I've not eaten stuffed yellow crook necks in that manner, but I have eaten stuff mirlitons in a sauce a few times...Now, I will try it with the yellow squash...Thanks for the inspiration!!!

I've just seen pictures in the catalog, Jeekins. I'm not a big fan of black flowers, although this one from Van Bourgondiens is quite striking.

They do look great. Although, I would prefer to showcase them by themselves rather than mix them in with all the colorful ones I already have.

....next years To-Do list. -LOL

I love the Star Gazer's. I think I only have one of those. I hope more come up this year.
