TODAY'S FLOWERS - Oriental Lilies


With our extreme heat lately, there is nothing else flowering
except a few lilies in pots.

Though there are not many, the scent is still almost overpowering


A glamorous virginal white that, on closer inspection,
is quite hairy.


also, these few brilliantly stunning pinks.

  10. Hello, I happened to read your comments on Jodi's (Blooming Writer) blog and just wanted to pop in and wish you peace. May you always have a flower blooming on your windowsill and peace in your heart.

    All the best from another Nova Scotia blogger.

  12. I love lilies. I grow them in pots here in the Summer time - but beware of their stamens - brush against them and the stain is so difficult to remove. Still the scent makes up for that.

  14. Oh, your oriental lilies are so pretty! They're one of my favorite flowers. The attendants at my wedding carried those pink stargazers. I found the white Casablanca lilies a few years ago. Hope you're feeling better.
