The recent article on the new exhibit at American Visionary Art Museum incorrectly describes the lilies in the icon of St. Kateri Tekakwitha as a "talisman," which is an object thought to bring good luck or have magic powers ( "New exhibit at AVAM explores the moment of inspiration," Oct. 6). A devout Catholic, the "Lily of the Mohawks" would have no use for luck or magic - she had Christ. As with the Blessed Virgin Mary, St. Joseph, St. Rose of Lima and others occasionally represented holding lilies, the flower is a symbol of purity.

Miguel De La Cuadra calls his Charles Village garden a work in progress, yet its profusion of color gives the impression of a long-completed work of art. Just three years in the making, the rowhouse garden features raised beds overflowing with lilies, hosta, astilbe and roses. A Japanese maple drapes gracefully over a koi pond. Potted impatiens, petunias and geraniums brighten a privacy fence. De La Cuadra, a human resources generalist, says he aspired to create a garden that blooms with color from spring to fall.

Tall, stately, and regally clothed in rich-hued blooms, lilies are the empresses of the garden, commanding attention wherever they appear. Lilyflowers can be 8-inch-long trumpets that exude perfume, big, ruffle-edged starbursts waving on sturdy, eye-high stems, chandelier-tiers of Turks' caps with peeled-back petals, and delicately sculptural, like the shell-pink Asiatic 'Aphrodite,' which resembles a carefully-wrought origami bloom. Because they are so tall -- many reach 4 feet and more -- lilies are staples for back of the border while their waxy blooms offer a distinct contrast in size and texture to surrounding perennials.

Day lily `Barbara Mitchell' (Hemerocallis) Pink and highly fragrant, `Barbara Mitchell' is a good reminder of why day lilies are such popular perennials. It's easy to grow, hardy, resistant to insects and disease and, like many day lilies, its petal color changes subtly during the day. Only drawback? They are popular with deer. Day lilies cultivars vary wildly in shape, height, color, fragrance and length of bloom, but they all love the sun. June and July are prime months for choosing day lilies at your local garden center because they are in bloom.

Years ago, a 7-year-old Indya Streams was riding in the back of her aunt's car when she burst into a spontaneous freestyle rap. Streams' aunt, Tracy Wilkins, turned down the car stereo to listen. When Streams was finished, Wilkins tested her, making her repeat her rhymes, and was impressed with what she heard. "She just spit it out," Wilkins said. "I was like, ‘Wow. Do you want to do that?' She said, ‘Yeah.' " Most 7-year-olds dream big, but Streams followed through.

Before there were books and Bibles - and people who could read them - there were myths and stories and works of art that often used flowers to help explain events in religious history and nature. The Easter lily has a starring role in such stories. And the tall and graceful trumpet flower that is everywhere this weekend has a rich modern history as well. The cultivar you will be seeing on church altars Sunday is probably the "Nellie White," named by lily grower James White for his wife.

It was on an early morning walk this week that I observed the evidence of the cooperating weather we've enjoyed this spring and summer. I was just off Charles Street, in the Homeland neighborhood. Lawns remain emerald green, without any early-July brown patches. I thought it was May in July. There were wild rabbits everywhere. They've obviously had a choice of expensive garden perennials for breakfast. It was not hard to spot the super-healthy oak-leaf hydrangeas and their cascades of white blossoms.

Watching football, raking leaves, carving pumpkins and planting bulbs are activities generally associated with fall. Spring is when those bulbs - daffodils and tulips - are supposed to reward that autumn investment with brilliant flowers. Lost in our pent-up urge to plant perennials and annuals in the spring are the summer flowering bulbs that should go into the ground in May, too - dahlias, cannas, gladiolus, tuberoses and more. Now is the time to order these bulbs so that they can reward you with flowers throughout the summer, until a killing frost.
