My Grandmother A lived in Sanger, California...a small town near Fresno if you know where that is. When I think of that area I always think of driving down a two lane highway with orange groves on both sides as far as you could see. Grandma had a screened in back porch where she kept her flowers. One of the flowers she had there was a Rain Lily. When she died somewhere around 1975 my cousin Carol took Grandma's Rain Lily home with her. Carol visited me this spring and when her husband came to pick her up he brought two Rain Lilies her sister and my cousin, Patty, had potted for my sister and me. I put them on a small table beside my front door in a courtyard area which gets sun only in the middle of the day but shade most of the time. Today they bloomed!
From Grandma to Carol and Patty to Sherry and me and, someday, hopefully on to our children. Isn't that a wonderful legacy?
