Welcome back, Ramona! What have you been up to other than moving a million lilies to your new place?

My husband has been critically ill... He spent 6 weeks in the hospital. He's home now. But I almost lost him. He had an infection in his spine (abscesses.) He's still having problems and probably will never be completely recovered. But he is home and starting to walk without a walker! So thankful he is still here with me!

Wow, Ramona. My prayers are with you and DH, too.

I'll have bulbs of Amelita to return to you next year. Smiling

I also went to the NALS Convention in Ontario this summer! Can you imagine a place with acres of lilies! S-W Gardens was awesome even if it was rediculously hot that day!

Hi Ramona, I am new here but I am sorry to hear of your recent difficulties. Hope your husband has a speedy recovery!

The last photo you posted of the martagon hybrid is amazing!

Ramona, my best to your DH for better days. That sounded horrible.

Love the posts about S.W.Gardens in Ontario. I may just have to take a drive over there next summer when I go up to Canada, though it is way west of were I go each summer, but looks like a worthy detour. Patti
