I assume that @jackieLbrewer has already noticed that the #lilycount is 13. (Ooh! We also had 13 lilies exactly one year ago!)
Jackie counts the number of lilly blossoms every morning, and provides that day’s #lillycount.
Here are the lilies in full bloom, shown with Jackie admiring them.
The penultimate lily of summer.
For a couple of weeks we had dozens of lilies each day. For a while Jackie would count them. Then she decided that it would really be more respectful to great each one by name, so she started doing that. (Fortunately, they’re all named Lily, so it was pretty easy.)
We can see one more bud, so we’re expecting one more lily tomorrow or the next day, but then they’ll be done until next summer, I guess.
