This smiling orange face has greeted me whenever I've pulled into my driveway for the last few weeks. June is the month when tiger lilies are in their glory.
I love hardy flowers - those that come back year after year, that manage to survive and be stronger than the weeds, that are able to thrive without much attention. I guess that's why I've always been drawn to lilies. They grow and multiply and never to fail to announce that summer has finally come.
It's a chunky little thing that could be hung on the wall or set on a shelf. The sides have been painted, and the picture wraps around the edges giving it a sort of three-dimensional effect.
In the end, it's a little piece of June that can last all year. Visit Orange Blast, Orange You Glad You Came, or Crochet by Momma J's Words of Wisdom where orange is celebrated - in winter... when we all need a little more orange!
