Oriental Lily

I rescued this bulb when the new walkway was installed. In its old location, the deer would eat most, if not all, the buds.  I  tucked the bulb in a corner between the edge of the house and the stone wall and hoped for the best.

As the spring days passed, the buds grew bigger. Frequent deer sightings, in the front yard, made me doubt this plants survival.

When I came home tonight, the lily was in full bloom.  Isn't it beautiful ?
