My World: Lilies

American Original lily, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. June 25, 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 have roses in our yard, but we also have other flowers as well.  We like to have blossoms spread out over as long a period as possible.

Our lilies started to bloom in late May and we still have a few blooming.  The lily in the picture above is called American Original.  It is in the long flower bed on the side of our house.

Golden Splendor lily, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. June 24, 2010.

Golden Splendor is another lily in that same flower bed.  We’ve had this lily for several years.

Garden Pleasure lily, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. June 3, 2010.

The new flower bed in front of the house contains some new lilies.  This beauty is called Garden Pleasure, which seems to be a very appropriate name.

Montenegro lily, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. May 29, 2010.

Montenegro is another new lily in that front flower bed.
