As I watered the garden today I realized that I was saying goodbye to the lilies. I'm sure they'll be gone in the next day or two. They were magnificent this year, lasting for several weeks, and scenting the air with sweetness. You can see the Rudbeckia flowers peeking their yellow faces out from underneath. It looks like they are ready for the next act in the perennial bed fashion show.
Each moment of the year has its own beauty. Ralph Waldo Emerson
