LOVE IN BLOOM







My first lily to open is always the most exciting. This one was so large this year I couldn't believe it. It was bigger then a saucer plate.. The day I took these was a little windy so it was a challenge. It is on a stem four feet tall. Can get to swaying. But the lighting was wonderful so I didn't want to miss the moment. Also the pollen changes after it has been open for very long.
Have a beautiful Sunday..................

Thanks for coming by my blog. I love your jewelry, each piece is so charming! What fun stuff~

The lilies are gorgeous. You must live in a cooler climate than me here in the St. Louis area because my Stargazer lilies are long gone. They are breathtaking when they bloom though and the fragrance can be detected across the yard! Enjoy them on these last days of summer!
