Tucked away in one of our Inn courtyards, there is a pink lily that stands above the rest -- at over five feet tall! This lilium speciosum rubrum was planted nearly five years and and hit its stride this year, sprouting up to peek above the courtyard fence. Keep an eye out for the pink blooms across from the Fitch Creations Administration Building. Full Post >
