Pink Lilies

 Lillies
I am very partial to Lilies. My favorite are Tiger Lilies.  Different parts of my yard have different lilies that bloom different times of the year. At this time, I have some pink lilies blooming, which you can see in the above picture. They are SO pretty!
Did you know that there are 110 varieties of lilies? Some species are sometimes grown or harvested for the edible bulbs! Lilies are actually leafy stemmed herbs.
The large flowers have six petals, are often fragrant, and come in a range of colors ranging through whites, yellows, oranges, pinks, reds and purples. Markings include spots, brush strokes and picotees (a variety of flower whose edge is a different color than the flower's base color). The plants are summer flowering.
Do you have a favorite variety of lily?

Petunias and Hot Summer Weather

It's been two years since I have updated my blog. I had gotten busy with my Etsy shop which took a lot of my time. Just lately, I started missing writing on my blog. So, here I am with my first post in two years! 
 I was looking back at my early summer pictures and was surprised at how much my petunias have grown. the above picture was taken in early June. 

Here it is late August and they have grown so much. They've needed a lot of water and tender loving care during our very hot summer weather (over 100 degrees most days). 

A few times, I thought they might not make it. Glad they did, as I love looking out my window at their beauty.

Hello September!

Hard to believe that we are leaving summer behind already. But, welcome September! Inching ever closer to my favorite season of the year.



September days are here With summer's best of weather And, autumn's best of cheer
