Flowers From Our Yard: Simplon Lily



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

We have a flower bed near the road in front of the house, and one of the things in that bed is Simplon Lily. There are only two plants, but they have put on a display for a couple of weeks now. I've seen people stop just to admire them. They also have a very pleasing fragrance.

I saw that on Betsy's post. I am impressed with the profusion of blooms!

I am glad you still have some flowers to enjoy. It is a hopeless case here.

Betsy has these on her blog today, as you know by now. She likened them to dotted swiss fabric. And she is right. They make a fabulous show in a bunch!

You have so many beautiful flowers growing in your yard, you need to post a photo of your entire yard.

These two make an impressive partnership! What beauty.

What delicate beauty. I like how you made the white stand out against a dark background to great effect.

I misread the name of the lily as "Simpleton". :) Your beautiful Simplon lilies would have me stopping to admire them too. Great photo!
