About Today’s Photo:
Robin planted a variety of lilies by Fargo Brook a couple seasons back. This season they’ve come into their prime, and this white variety seem to be quite long-lived with large hand-sized blossoms blooming for a couple of weeks now. The showy anthers leave a dollop of pollen on your nose if you lean in too far to sample the sweet scent!
