Lilies in our Yard ---Part I

LILY COLLAGE 2020
Dear Friends,   I am 'back' to this new Blogger set-up  (I guess the 'old way' is gone now) ---so forgive me if things are all messed up a bit!!!!!   I'm not only learning about the writing of a post,  but am learning how to set up my Blog using the new method....... Quite a learning experience!!!!

Anyhow--- today I am sharing with you a favorite flower of mine  (and of the deer).... Because the deer were eating the beautiful LILY blooms,  George put some of our Lilies into containers and brought them to the deck last year...  SO far,  the deer haven't been on the deck --so the LILIES for the past two summers have been gorgeous.... I absolutely love LILIES --and have enjoyed seeing about 15 different varieties this summer with lots of blooms on each one.  This is such JOY for me --and they smell fantastic...

Hope you enjoy seeing some of these beauties today...   I divided some of my favorite pictures into two posts.....

Hope this all comes out... Busy weekend:  New Post,  New month with my August header and theme!!!!  Fun fun!!!

OH the JOYS of Blogging... I've been blogging since 2006 --and have gone through many changes given to us by Blogger ...  SOME have definitely not been what I call an improvement!!!!   Oh Well...  It is what it is!!!!!!

Hope you have an awesome week!!!!

Hugs,

BETSY
