lilies and ireland

tiger lilies, proud
cacophony of orange
can’t hide green stems

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    Tiger lilies are wildly, gloriously orange and do create a welcome cacophony in the garden. Thanks for reminding me summer is around the corner!

  4. Your use of color to convey the prompt is as brilliant as the orange.
