Nowhere To Hide

I must admit that Nowhere to Hide is one of my favorites. Its color with dark veins and ruffled-edged petals make it unique. It was given to me by my friends Joyce and Jimmy.

I love each of these six. Each has its own attributes.  I am fascinated by the subtle variations.

‘Sound and Fury’ really stands out with its rusty orange blooms.  It has been moved and abused numerous times, so I was glad to see it blooming today.

‘Gentle Shepherd’ is really that white.  It was given to me by my sister-in-law, Dana.

My Easter Lily is also blooming this week. The two look similar, don’t they?

Gentle Shepherd is a slow grower.  I divided it four years ago and it still has not recovered.
