Day 259

Daylily

After the girls at work told me daylilies were edible, I almost ate a border lily by accident. Not sure if those are toxic, but luckily I didn’t have to find out — mine were past bloom. (I inherited a sprawling garden from my mother, and I have almost no idea what goes on in there.) So I had someone in the know lead me to the right specimen — always a good idea. The petals are like a sweeter and more beautiful lettuce.

  2. I’ve tried marsh marigolds, and bull rushes, … but not lilies.
