Back in the Day Lily

I found this daylily in the woods on my land one day. Back in the day before I moved here, This lady name Lula lived here and she planted it. I was told she planted it the day her and her husband Wayne got married which was June 19th 1958. Well Lula found out she had cancer and she died in 1984. Her and Wayne lived a very happy life together. Then in 1987 I met and married Wayne.We were out walking one day and came across this daylily and he told me the story about the lily. We decided to clear some land and inlarge our yard one year and I made sure the lily was part of the yard. Well Wayne died of cancer in 1997, but this beautiful lily lives on. I think Lula knew what she was doing the day she planted that lily.
It is at the edge of a petal that love waits.

Hey Dianne, Thanks for the cheers. Believe it or not I really enjoy doing this.You really should try doing this to, it's a lot of fun, and I know you would have a lot of interesting things to talk about to.

Hi Carla, Thanks for the comment on the lily. Yes I do believe it is an Easter lily. I don't know a lot about any kind of lily, This one just means a lot to me. Thanks again!
