It opened this morning!

The lone orange in the sea of pink!

Tiger lilies are what my Grandma Baker grew by the porch.  They remind me of her and therefore are my favorite flower.  I can't express how happy and emotional I was this morning when I saw it had finally opened and saw that it was indeed a tiger lily.  I planted a bunch of them in the fall and didn't know if they had survived the winter and the late spring snow storms.
