My World: Consider the Lilies

Lilies in our yard, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. June 12, 2010.

This is my post for the My World meme.  It is hosted by Klaus, Ivar, Sandy, Wren, and Fishing Guy.  To learn more about our world or to join and share your part of the world, click HERE.

Most of you know that Betsy and I love roses and have quite a few in our yard.  Roses are  definitely our favorite flowers, but lilies are a close second.  We have lilies in three beds; the picture above is of part of the bed along the side of our deck.  When the doors leading to the deck are open, the fragrance is heavenly.

    George: They are certainly a beautiful flower, you do little work as they toil to produce.

    Those are the flowers of labor, beautiful.

    You do have a nice collection there George. They really do smell wonderful.

  4. Kathy Ariano Says:

    I agree with you and Betsy — the lilies are a close second. And while I love day lilies — the fact that they bloom only for a day is just depressing. The Asiatics, however, are another story!

    When I enlarged your picture, I could see just how beautiful all the lilies are George. I can close my eyes and almost smell the sweet fragrance. Your post title reminds me of that beautiful hymn. Thank you for such a lovely post this afternoon. Is the intense heat doing any damage to your roses/lilies?
