From My Archives: Touching Lily



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

Our newest flower bed contains a variety of plants -- roses, irises, lilies and day lilies. They all put on quite a show this year. I got this picture of this pretty lily -- Touching -- in May of this year. We were delighted that it bloomed while we were home and could enjoy it.

so pretty and I like the buds almost as much as the open flowers.

That is a very pretty lily. I'm not a horticultural type - but love the pictures you take of the flowers in your yard.
