Looks like the construction crew left one lonely lily plant behind. Yes, this is what's left of the huge clump I tried to rescue a while ago.
Did the workers purposely leave this lily untouched?
Or was it just not necessary to remove it?
I don't know. I sent these pics off to my local newspaper. We'll see if this is a newsworthy story (in our small town, just about anything goes).
As it is, this major road construction is the talk of the town. Roads blocked off, trucks lumbering up and down the streets, dumping loads of gravel at 7:00 in the morning. Ah well, it will nice when it's all done. A bigger, wider main street with bicycle paths.
