At last we had rain. Drenching rain which caught me on my walk! That was yesterday morning and it continued to rain until this morning so the ground is very wet and my poor Hydrangeas are hanging their huge mopheads towards the ground. I hope they will recover as they dry off.  Our temperatures are forecast to be near 30 again come the weekend so they will definitely dry off.

While I was outside poking around and seeing how much damage the rain had done I discovered this lovely Lily hidden beneath a Rose bush. Since it was so hidden I thought I'd cut it and bring it inside so we could enjoy its beauty. 

Now I'm off to the kitchen where I plan on making some thing delicious with the luscious cherries I bought on Tuesday. I think the cherries this year have been better than years past and I'm going to buy more tomorrow. The season isn't that long so we have to enjoy them as much as we can. 
    Are you enjoying the fresh fruit that is so abundant right now?

  1. What a gorgeous lily! Yes, eating lots of fruit. In fact, I should eat more just to keep up with what's in my fridge! :)
    I guess I'm not sure what country you live in. You seem to refer to Celcius temps, so I'm thinking you're not in the U.S.?

  2. I live about 50 miles east of Vancouver, B.C. in the lovely Fraser Valley. We have the mildest temperatures in Canada ( also the most rainy days!). We do get some snow most winters but it doesn't usually stay long. Thanks for being such a faithful commenter. ( Is that even a word??)

  3. "Commenter" sounds like a word to me! I think you probably mentioned living in Vancouver before. Short memory! You're on my blog list. Hey, us introverts have to stick together! Since my husband passed away I'm enjoying my blog friends even more. Thanks for sharing the little things that make your life worthwhile. :)
