My Beautiful Lilies

July 30, 2008

Gardening

Oh July! I love this month because it’s when everything is glorious buzzing with activity! And my most favorite flower, the fragrant Oriental lily, is blooming. Click the photo for a very large view. You can almost smell them from here.

I clipped a few and have them in the house. Their scent fills the home with their sweet, heady fragrance. Mmmmm.

My son has a growing collection of grasshoppers. He wanted me to post a photo of them. I think they are ickky. But I remember how fascinated I was with bugs when I was his age.

    The flowers are beautiful! All of my potted flowers, that I started from seed, have died in the heat we’re having. I have some crepe myrtle blooming, but that’s about it. Thanks so much for sharing the photos!
