Passalong present ... awesome Oxblood lilies

What wonderful garden blogging friends I have. Today I had a delightful tour of Zanthan Gardens and tonight I am the proud and thankful owner of a bucket-o-Oxblood lilies.

MSS shared her amazing bounty with me, as she has with so many others in the gardening community. Her post and her photos of her collection, truly are amazing, as is her garden. We had fun talking to her goldfish in the pond and sharing garden tales.
So I promptly brought my bucket home and found special places to tuck these beautiful specimens. I divided them into four groups -- two went into the corner bed and two went into the shade bed.

They are all safe and sound asleep tonight inside the fence, as I learned that the deer do like them with their salad.
