Asiatic Lily Buds
Asiatic Tiger Lily buds

Our gardens are enamored of the spring,
Of silver rain,
The cloudy green of buds slow-burgeoning,
The sorrow of last apple blooms that cling
And are not fain
To yield their fruit again.
We do not long for tropic pageantry,
Yet surge with love to see
The tiger lily’s muted ecstasy.

(From the poem "Tiger Lily" by Walter Adolphe Roberts)

One of my favorite flowers that I sadly cannot keep alive because the bunnies devour them. I love their scent.
