A kind offering from a visitor last year…after the single stem had produced a single flower I stuck it in the ground and forgot it. This year, it came back and is bursting forth. I had never really studied up on the Lilly and now learn they spread via tubers. This plant now has a half dozen stems at least popping up from the original single stem.
“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be
satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
