Show & Tell - May 30th

A proliferation of Asiatic Lilies . . .




With more to come in hues of apricot and palest pink . . .




The sight that thrilled me most alongside the feast of Lilies - first rose . . .




The bushes need some organic mulch - too much rain lately, so there are some spots on the petals. I can hardly wait for more to bloom - this one's fragrance was quite heady even by itself and even not full out open.

All these blooms leave me to heave a contented sigh . . .

For more of what the class has brought, see here.

Those are gorgeous flowers Julia. This is my year for getting flower beds in shape. I'm hoping come fall I can plant some bulbs.

Beauteous. I moved to a new house last July. We are trying to work on the yard this year.

I kind of wanted to name all the girls I was going to have after flowers: Lily, Rose, Violet, Jasmine and even Jonquil.

But not Crocus.

Beautiful pix, Julia.

Cara said...

Julia - I have to say you and my mother could talk and compare flowers for hours! I live the beauty vicariously through both of you...cause ....they don't do well round here!

Amazing and beautiful. I love how nature feeds the soul. Someday I hope to have flowerbeds where I can grow such beauties.

How beautiful! I love the smell of roses. We don't have any roses since we moved and I really miss tending to them. Feel free to come on over to my yard next 'o)
