Why you ask, are you thankful for that?? Well, first of all. let me tell you what THAT is. Those are my Stargazer lilies. Here is what they look like for those of you who might not be sure (this pic is from last summer):
These are my very favorite flowers! And here is why I am thankful for those sprouts in the first pic. Last fall, Cody, our Border Collie, got loose and Mr. Lovestodig decided he was going to dig a nice big hole in my flower bed! EEEEKK!!! When I discovered that huge hole, RIGHT where my Stargazers had once been, I was SO unhappy. The stalks had still been there, I hadn't cut them down yet because I was waiting for them to die back. But they were strewn all over my flower bed and dragged into the yard. SO....fast forward to a couple weeks ago. I saw my tiger lilies pop up, but no Stargazers....then, a few days ago, to my very delighted surprise, I saw my Stargazers had started to peek! Oh happy daaaaay! I seriously did a happy dance, you have no idea. I guess when Cody dug up the flower bed he just missed them and must have somehow just knocked off the stalks (that or he totally dug them up and reburried them and they survived somehow). So anyway, I am a happy camper knowing that I will be able to see and smell my lovely Stargazers once again this summer. Yay!
