Tiger Lilies - 2013

Today marks the day in which I personally reckon the arrival of summer: the first tiger lily to bloom. This year the first flowers of Hemerocallis fulva (also known as "ditch lily" to more scornful gardeners, for whom the tiger lily is considered invasive) opened on June 22. This is the latest date I have recorded for the annual event, with the earliest opening being June 9 in my backyard. I suspect that the lengthy winter is entirely to blame for the late blossoming, which seems to have put many of my perennial flowers a week or so behind schedule in 2013.

Hey, looks like you're really slowin' down there in your blogging, Mike. Like, almost two orders of magnitude. 'Smatta? Years of socio-economic reality smacking you in the face finally convinced you that we're in the Great Depression Two? It's not 2006 anymore, pal. It's not the 1980s anymore, either. Union jobs and those days of safe mortgaged White neighborhoods are over, forever. Your Great Black Hope in the so-called White House turned out to be more sinisterly African than you planned.

If you were a real man, you'd leave this comment here. But Liberals like you are heavily censorial. Still, you've read it. That's enough for now.
