Almost missed obligatory photographs of the big lily show --- the last major production in the museum gardens as the various plants gather strength for a new season and summer heat intensifies.
These were taken Thursday evening when I drove out late to push the trash trolley down the drive to the curb for Friday morning pickup.
Most of these were planted some years ago when Kay Brown, now semi-retired, was chief museum gardener.
The Stargazer lilies (top) continue to steal the show.
But the daylilies are pretty spectacular, too, when in their prime.
