People give me a number of potted plants as hostess or thank you gifts every year. After enjoying them in the house they get retired to a spot in the garden. There are a number of hydrangeas and azaleas that were originally gifts that are now permanent fixtures in the garden and I have long forgotten who gave them to me and when. One exception is this Easter lily that is in the Moonlight Garden. I forget about it until it surprises me with a beautiful bloom and then I can't help but remember it as a gift from a friend that shared Easter dinner with our family a couple years ago.
