Kiss the Toad Lily

Toad Lily

This is my first toad lily–Samurai, I believe. I love the speckles on the flower, I love the fact that it’s a shade plant, and I flat-out adore how weird and otherworldly it looks. Between that, the Himalayan cobra lilies, and the Jack-in-the-pulpit, I’m beginning to notice a trend, sorta. *looks innocent*

In a couple years, the garden is going to be AMAZING. It’s a new thing, to put down roots like this. I felt temporary for over a decade at the old house, because it was only rented, after all. Now I finally feel like I have a place to belong. After growing up a military brat and my peripatetic life afterward, it’s a relief.

Fabulous. 🙂 Those won’t grow here in subtropical Florida. Speckles on weird flowers are THE BEST!
