Lilies in our Yard

Gosh---it's hard for me to say which of our perennial flowers I love the most...  I love all of them (Daffodils, Crocuses, Hyacinths, Tulips, Irises, etc.) ----but the Lilies and Daylilies are WAY at the top of my list, especially the Lilies.  Right now,  we have 18 different varieties of Lilies which have bloomed so far,  with more to come!!!!

I have already shown you 3 of the lily varieties  (click HERE to see them)---so today,  I'll show you more of these beauties,  all of which have bloomed in our yard this past month..  The picture above is a favorite this year (PINK PERFECTION) ---not only because of its beauty,  but because this lily is HUGE  and TALL....  Be sure to click on the pictures to see them larger.





George is about 6'4"----and the PINK PERFECTION lilies are taller than he is.... These lilies are in the road flowerbed in the front...  They are awesome!!!




Here's a close-up of PINK PERFECTION.  Aren't they beautiful?




Here's a reddish lily named  RED TWINKLE...  This lily is located on the side flowerbed (where many of our lilies are located).  I love the color of this one.




Here is a picture of several different lily (and daylily) varieties.    These are in the side flowerbed  in the back (near the deck).... I love sitting on the deck admiring these beauties...




One of the lilies you can see in the previous picture is named MADONNA (the white ones pictured above).  We have many of these lilies and they smell incredible!!!!




Butterflies love lilies...  This little butterfly was going from one FREEDOM GLOW lily to the next...




This is another picture of all of the lilies (and daylilies) in our side flowerbed.  This is looking toward the front yard...   This is the view I can see from the kitchen window... That makes washing dishes much nicer!!!!!!ha




And, finally here is another pink lily  (named PINK LEMONADE) that is very pretty.  George took this one ---after we had had some rain... I always love seeing the raindrops on our flowers...

Hope you enjoyed seeing today's post showing more of our beautiful Lilies... I'll do a post soon showing some of our Daylilies and more of our Lilies...

Thanks so much for all of the well-wishes we received (Friday's Blog--click HERE if you missed it).   We had a fabulous weekend celebrating our 11th anniversary on Saturday.  As you can imagine,  we took TONS of photos ---so that will be coming up soon!!!!  Hope you had as great a weekend as we did.  Thanks again!!

Have a fabulous day.
Hugs,
Betsy
