Notes:

Hey Walter!!We just moved into our very first home and I am LOVING digging and planting in my very own yard!! How gorgeous is it this flower? I know it’s some kind of lily, but not sure what kind. It’s Sept, and it’s all bunched up in one spot – can I separate now and give to some friends or share it’s beauty with our hospital garden where I work. This other is driving me crazy and keeps coming back – winding itself all over and thru my bushes. HELP! Thanks so much for your time!

    The second one is a cypress vine. They don’t root very deeply and should be relatively easy to yank out where you don’t want them.

    Looks like an old fashioned amaryllis. Here’s a pic so you can see. It also looks like there’s some blue stokes daisy growing along the edge of the sidewalk.
