Do you know the name of it? Is it a trumpet?

It's a trumpet and Polly didn't tell me the name. I've had it several years and she can never remember what she sent me, nor can I.

Even without a name anymore, it's beautiful. I like that creamy white and butterscotch. It looks like an ice cream sundae. Lilies are hardy here, at least some of them, so I should get more. Last spring I put in an Easter lily that only cost about $2, I hope it will bloom next spring. It's my only trumpet.

Clusters, and the last pic is also hugely beautiful, a yellow, also from Polly:

Your Easter lily should grow and bloom, Mary. I have one that I planted right from the pot about a zillion years ago and it still blooms even though now it's totally shaded by the River Birch that was small when I planted it.

We've had high winds since yesterday, gusts of 50 - 60 mph. Now we are in a severe wind and tornado advisory till 8 tonight and the temps are around 70. If you are east of me . . . Vic . . . y'all be safe. We've had no rain, or very little, but I swear I have all the leaves from Oklahoma and Texas in my yard.

Yes, River Birch bark is my favorite and right now it's loosening and blowing away. I should be grabbing it and sending messages, permanent marker should work. Smiling

I've not seen any severe weather alerts for us. I wonder if your winds are heading northeast? High winds terrify me Crying

Probably NE, I think Ohio and Indiana are in the direct line.

High winds aren't my favorite either.

Thanks Jon.
The little town just across the Ohio River and about 20 miles slightly north west of me was devastated, Brookport Illinois. But though I had heavy winds and rains most of the afternoon, there doesn't seem to be any damage here other than limbs and wind debris. Thanks so much for asking. The tornadoes bounced around us, but didn't touch down in my town.

The devastation in Brookport continues as they check for bodies in and under the mobile homes that were leveled. They have set up an animal shelter for those wandering animals that no longer have homes or families right now. That was the only good I heard this evening, the little animal shelter that someone had set up.

Thanks Jon.

Glad you could use the words, Sharon. I hope every body is safe from the winds.
