Lilies in Our Yard



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it. Clicking a second time will make it full-sized)

Our new flower bed near the road contains quite a few lilies. Unfortunately most of them bloomed while we were out west on our trip. But the neighbors say that they were all beautiful. We were fortunate that this group of lilies were still showing off when we got back home.

Hello George thanks for the reply I do appreciate it. And yes I google Mt. Pisgah and yes it's so pretty, I can't imagine how does it look like this Autumn, it would be spectacular too. And by the way I noticed you have many different kind of lilies, and it's all very pretty!!

Those look at the peak of their beauty for that late in the summer, Aren't we going to miss all the flowers shortly? Boo hoo!!! I think I will miss them more this year than ever, maybe because I'm getting older and seem to need them more. The fall is not so bad because we have wonderful trees and grasses to see, but winter just has nothing!!
