Who is SMILING at YOU?

2020 DAY LILIES in our YARD


Dear Blog Friends,   Can you believe that I never posted these pictures --nor ANY Day Lily pictures this summer????  I guess it was meant for me to wait until now to post these to make you (and ME) smile!!!!!  I needed this today since I've had a rough week.  Hope you enjoy seeing these little Sweeties!

We have had a lot of flowers to bloom in our yard  this year--and I've posted many groups of them  (including Daffodils, Tulips,  other Spring flowers and shrubs,  Irises,  Roses,  and Lilies)...   I'm sure the Day Lilies feel left out --so hopefully,  I'll make up for it by picking out some of my favorite ones to share with you.  By the way,  I have a lot to choose from since we have more than 70 Day Lily plants in our yard now, each with many, many blooms... Wow!!!!  Hope you enjoy the beauty of these wonderful little flowers!!!!!  I am smiling....  Did I see a BIG smile from you?????

To see the name and date the photos were taken,  put your mouse over each picture (don't click; just hold) and the info will pop up!!!

Hope you enjoyed the Day Lilies today... I'm sure I'll post more soon!!!!  

Life is hard these days for so many of us... In our country,  we have been dealing with so many changes since Covid-19 started...   Not just Covid  problems,  but anger/bitterness/demands/protests/violence --and HATRED is all around us threatening our freedoms, choices, and our lives!  On top of all of this are our upcoming political elections.  All of this wrapped together is hard for us.  We are a country DIVIDED--and it just makes me so sad....  God Bless the USA.

Have an awesome week ---and do as I'm trying to do:  PRAY hard, and find ways to SMILE!!!

WOW, these are all so beautiful. I couldn't even choose a favorite, each one is just as pretty as the next.
This is a difficult time for so many reasons. I think there are a lot of people who are struggling through this for so many different reasons. Praying is definitely needed now.

Hello, Betsy

Your day lilies are beautiful. Lovely images, thanks for the smiles.
I hope you are doing well, take care and stay safe. Have a happy new week!

Betsy said...

Gorgeous! I like how I can mouse over and see name. I must find out how to do this. Yes, so much going on like you say, but good will win out. I am not letting the turkeys get me down. Never have.
Happy Monday to you

You got some great pictures of our day lilies. I'm glad I didn't have to pick out a favorite. Thanks for the hopeful message.

Lovely lilies.

Arkansas Patti said...

I am always amazed at the varieties you have. Just beautiful and all different. I just have ditch lilies.
Pray we all get through this and grow.

Oklahoma Sand Barr for me! Or maybe Savanah Debutante; that one is like a sunset!

Betsy said...

Thank you for sharing the beauty in your yard with us. So many varieties of lillies.
Yes, our country is definitely in an upheaval right now. It's hard to know why people are reacting the way they are and I'm sure it saddens God's heart. I'm hopeful that people will realize the wickeness of some of the stands that are being taken and actions that are being done.

Yes, Betsy, these made me smile. We all have so many things on our minds, some confusion as to what is fact and what is simply hype. These flowers are a wonderful lift and bring joy.

Deb said...

Hi Betsy - you and George have the most amazing flowers! Thanks for sharing these lovely pictures. I am also saddened by what is going on in our country. Prayers for peace and unity for our great country! Amen to God Bless America!!
