Unique Lovely Lily & issue update

I was taking photos in my Lily patch and came across this lovely 2 color lily. It’s so unique and fun. It made me smile. I don’t recall ever seeing it bloom before.
A couple years ago we bought several different varieties of lilies for the front yard. There’s quite a bit of shade in our front yard, but we figured the lilies would do okay. Unfortunately, we were wrong, they didn’t do well and barely grew or bloomed.
Last year, We made a lily patch in the back yard, in an area of full sun, and transplanted the front yard lilies to it. All the lilies took off growing and have thrived wonderfully.

My Blog Issue Update:
I can surf blogs with other browsers, fairly well now, but not for posting and commenting.
I’m using a Chrome browser for posting today. I want to see if it helps my issues before I contact WP support.
So far, so good…
I’m going to try and visit and comment using Chrome.
Hopefully, I’ll be able to visit and do a bit of catching up with you all.
Wish me luck 🙂

Wishing you all a beautiful week free of issues.

Lilies & Zinnias – low maintenance lovelies

We’ve spent quite a lot of time outside enjoying the colors of Summer. I never tire of seeing the flowers in bloom. Right now the lilies and zinnias are making a show. I’ve kept my camera busy. For me, the fun things about my lilies and zinnias are that the lilies are perennial and require very little maintenance and the zinnias are all volunteers from last year’s zinnias and require no/low maintenance as well. Pretty neat 😀

Wishing everyone a beautiful week!

Wednesday Winter Sprouts

The temperatures has been in the 50°s and high 60°s here lately. The daffodils, lilies and rose are trying to make their yearly debue. Unfortunately, the temperatures are rumored farecast to start dropping and the new growth will probably be bit back. Fortunately, the temperatures will warm up again soon and the new growth will began again.

Ornamental Tiger Lilies

a-IMG_5223These flowers are ornamental Tiger Lilies and precious heirlooms to me. They came from seeds that my Mom gave me a couple decades ago from her own ornamental lilies. Mom’s ornamental lilies came from seeds given to her by her Mom from her ornamental tiger lilies. As close as I can figure, this line of ornamental tiger lilies has been in my family for probably 90 years or more.
c-IMG_5423I’m always anxious each year waiting for the bright orange blooms to burst into full color. It makes me smile to see these living beauties of love from my Mom and Grandmother.
