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.

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.ReplyDelete
All the best from another Nova Scotia blogger.
gorgeous! the stargazers are so potent!ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
Pretty lilies! Liz @ MLCReplyDelete
Great photos. I really like the close up.ReplyDelete

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.ReplyDelete
