Quiet Morning

It's a clear summer morning here before a hot day to come.

Their is a pot of pink rain lilies near the front step and they offered seventeen blooms this morning to provide a bit if serenity to the world.

The bulbs in this particular pot are direct descendants of a large clump that came from my grandmother's garden in eastern Kentucky more than sixty years ago.    A few made their way to Ohio with my mother and over the years they have been divided and re-potted several times.  This fall I will break open this pot and divide the bulbs again and we'll start over next spring. 

Very interesting plant that you can read about here.

More wine notes later.
