winner and a smile

Congratulations Andrea ~ At Home Mommy Knits!! The roll of a dice says Stitch 'N Bitch Nation is heading off to your house to live. Please send me your mailing address at rycole at hotmail dot com I'll be sure to send it off after this Long Weekend is over.

These old fashioned orange lilies grow at the corner of our garage where I can see them every time I pull in or out of our driveway. My maternal grandfather had dozens of orange lilies growing at the back of his garden. When I was about 5 or 6 years old one of my last memories of him was of asking him why he had so many? He said because they always made him smile. Every time I see these blooms I remember Opa and smile. :)
