Today's pictures/Opening day

These three beauties made their first appearance of the season today.


  1. Beautiful pictures. Everyone laughs at me when I mention fairy lights here in Texas - apparently they have a whole different meaning.

  2. I love the different colors you've got!!

  3. Nan, they are gorgeous! I have to say I am extremely fond of the last one! Love the color and just the everything about that lily!

  4. Oh wow! When I opened your post, that flower was like a burst of sunshine! Beautiful! Have a wonderful Sunday!

  5. Hi Nan: Thanks for posting these beautiful photographs. They certainly have helped to brighten up a very rainy day.

  6. Ann, I learned the term from British books and television. :<)

    Jill, aren't they just amazing!

    Staci, I just stand and stare at them.

    Sherri, that one is very special. If you click to enlarge it, you'll see what could almost be called veins. And I've never seen such a color - it is yellow and pink at the same time. Is this what is called apricot?

    Kay, the colors are so beautiful this time of year.

    Carolyn, I so love them.

    Donna, we could actually use some rain. It's still hot and sunny but in 80s not 90s!

  7. The Lilys are stunning. Thank you for sharing. I love your Blog. I have been reading non stop for the last half hour. I will be following. I hope you will stop by my new Blog "Heathers Meadow" sometime and let me know what you think.

  8. Gorgeous flowers! A celebratory opening day for sure.

    My computer is kinda' slow today and I have to tell you that your header photo had me drooling by the time the site loaded. Those raspberries look --- well -- good enough to eat! Just a perfect photo.

  9. Daylilies in gorgeous close-ups--raspberries to die for--what more could we ask of July [?]

  10. Nan, those raspberries on your header are beautiful!! Yummy!

  11. Beautiful! Love the new header too, luckily I am about to eat a bowl of raspberries or I would be dribbling!

  12. Thanks so much, Heathers Meadow. I have a lot of fun with this little blog! I did stop by your blog yesterday and shall be back soon!

    Thanks so much to each of you for your praise of the raspberries. They are all eaten now! But more will be coming daily. What bounty.

  13. Nan dear,

    They're delicious looking, but then, so is that header. It made my mouth water.
