20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Lily 'Forever Linda' in the afternoon with black backdrop

I have kept an extensive garden of perennials for the last 15 years. This year I endeavored to photo document each of the 300 varieties, from the first Winter Aconite to the last Pink Chelone (Turtlehead). This 'Forever Linda' Asiatic Lily bloomed June 12th, 2022 in central Indiana.
