Welcome to JOYFUL REFLECTIONS. My Header Picture for September 2021 shows a beautiful Sunset with the Shenandoah Valley below. My picture was taken from our room balcony while at Skyland Resort on 8/3/21.

Today I will share some of the many varieties of LILIES we have in our yard. Above is a favorite named LOLLYPOP. Below are more.
As you know, we have lots of deer around. Now that it's gotten so hot and dry here, the deer come into the yards looking for their lunch. We spray something entitled Liquid Fence in order to keep the deer away from our yard and flowers. It works about 98% of the time ---although during times like this, we have to spray more often. The Liquid Fence doesn't harm the plants nor the deer --but they just don't like the taste. SO--they stay away MOST of the time.
However, this past week, one lone deer enjoyed some of our flowers --including the gorgeous Montenegro Lilies (like the one pictured above). I'm glad we at least got one picture before they were eaten!!! Since that latest visit, George has been spraying about every other night... So far--so good!!!
Hope you enjoyed seeing some of our Lilies. Hope you also had a nice weekend. We are still HOT HOT HOT.. BUT--we got a tiny bit of rain yesterday ---so thank God for what we got....We are so dry now--so that rain helped!
