Spider Lily

Last weekend as I was working on planting my new Golden Nugget Dwarf Japanese Barbaries, I found a funny little stem sticking out of the grass near the storage building.  It had tiny red buds on the crown, but no leaves.  I left it alone intending to come back to it later.  This weekend while prepping to plant a few more dwarf shrubs, I see that the most interesting blooms have developed on this little leafless stem!

I sent this picture to my mom and she said that it is a Spider Lily.  She remembers seeing them in her grandfather’s yard when she was young.  She also said that it will multiply to create a colony, so if I don’t like the location (which I don’t because Bradley will end up mowing over it), I can move it once the blooms dies back.  So interesting that I am still finding new things after being here for three years.

I think Habitual Rearranger fits me well because I am never settled on designs, colors, or placement of items in our home. I drive Bradley crazy sometimes, but I keep figuring out new and better ways of doing things! I am not striving to be profound or an expert on anything in this blog. It is simply a way to keep a record of all of my adventures - home and life - for me to reference and also for my loved ones to follow along. I am a born and raised Georgia girl. I don't think I would enjoy living anywhere except the south. Bradley and I spent six and a half years in our starter home and are now in our forever home, a 1970s traditional two story brick house. I love getting into all kinds of projects around our house, and I try to document all the dirty details here if for no one else than for me.
