“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
2 For by it the elders obtained a good report.
3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.” Hebrews 11:1-3 KJV
The Tiger Lily is such a fascinating plant. It grows from a bulb reaching about 4 feet (1.2 m) tall.
They are easy to grow. Here is an article where you can read more about its growing conditions. http://www.pfaf.org/user/plant.aspx?LatinName=Lilium+lancifolium
I was doing some reading about this plant and many sources stated that parts of it are edible for human consumption, but the pollen is toxic, and all of its parts are toxic to cats. here is a link to an article that was interesting: http://www.eattheweeds.com/tiger-lily/
The Tiger Lily is such a striking plant that I can’t help but think about how miraculous God’s work of creation really is whenever I see them growing.
“Tiger Lilies” by Theresa Anne Moore
Morning sun and dappled shade
From sweet gum tree and oak tree casting
Provide a place where the squirrel can raid
His secret stocks and break his fasting
The honeysuckle scent will pervade
As it reaches, winds, and succeeds at grasping.
And in the midst is the warm glow made
By the tiger lilies that is everlasting.
The picture has been taken and lovingly displayed.
This post was submitted as part of the A to Z Challenge, where participants agree to post an article that corresponds to each letter of the alphabet and publish an article every day during the month of April (except Sundays).
Here at Serenaded Softly, my theme for the month is Blossoming Verses, where I’ll share a picture of something in bloom, a passage of scripture, and a poem.
