Sarah Orne Jewett House

Tiger Lily

“There are few of us who cannot remember a front-yard garden which seemed to us a very paradise in childhood. It was like a miracle when the yellow and white daffies came into bloom in the spring; and there was a time when the tiger-lilies and the taller rose-bushes were taller than we were, and we could not look over their heads as we do now.”
Sarah Orne Jewett (“From a Mournful Villager,” 1881)
