A Happy Mistake

Remember last year when I bought all those Asiatic lilies that were supposed to be white and turned out to be pink? I moved them from the Moonlight Garden to the Perennial Garden where they blended in nicely. I am thrilled with them this year. They have beautiful blooms and nice structure. However I am missing quite a few due the the fact they are located right on the inside bend of Flying Rabbit Island and when the puppy races around the island they were just too convenient for her to grab the small stems in her mouth as she raced by and run with them in her mouth. Nevertheless, those that remain are lovely and turned out to be a good mistake!

They are just beautiful and a good mistake for once. I have gathered quite a few this year.
Have a wonderful weekend.

I'm picturing your puppy racing around like a rakish tango dancer with a flower in its mouth. The ones you have left seem to have a lot of blooms, and I like the colour. I inherited some bright orange ones from the previous ownersthat I can't seem to find a good place for in the garden. They hide out at the side of the house for now.

Ooh, now that's what I call a good mistake! Serendipity is more like it. So pretty!
