Today is lily garden day. I couldn't resist showing off these beautiful blooms. Some of these blooms have been shown before and I hope you will enjoy them once again. Actually these blooms are different because now they are in 'full' bloom. For all you lily lovers and or just flower worshipers in general, I have a question for you. Look at the close up photos very carefully. Do you know which two photos are hybrids worth $200 each? They were given to me as gifts. Lucky me!!
I haven't been able to capture the true beauty of this lily garden taken up close. The next photo was taken from my deck and it is somewhat better. The truly beautiful lilies are shown at their best in the closeups. What do you think? Don't forget to look for the hybrids.
The deck view. Now for the closeups. I don't know why they are so much prettier than last year, they just are. This is the second year since we planted them and we have had more rain.
This is all there is. This lily garden is the first thing we planted before we moved here two years ago last May. Our house was finished but Bill had one more year to work before he retired. Just by chance we stopped at a flea market and a lady had lilies in grocery bags with a root ball. She dug them out of her own garden and was selling them for $5 a piece and I knew absolutely nothing about lilies, but they were blooming and beautiful. We bought eleven lilies, all different varieties. I am sure they have names but I haven't looked them up to see what they are.
God made the flowers to beautify
The earth, and cheer man's careful mood;
And he is happiest who hath power
To gather wisdom from a flower,
And wake his heart in every hour
To pleasant gratitude.
Thank you for visiting my post. I truly enjoy your comments and interest. Don't forget to tell me which two lily photos are the hybrids of value.
