Lilies

 When middle son was home at lunchtime I asked him to take a couple of pictures of my Lilies . In this hot weather they won't last long. I seem to have best luck with Lilies when I grow them in pots. In the ground they seem to disappear after a year or two.  Not long after he left I saw a beautiful butterfly land on the orange Lilies ( I believe it was a Tiger Swallowtail).  We don't see pretty butterflies around very often and this one was the first  of the year.

I've decided which camera I want and again middle son will help in ordering it from Amazon ( I do not enjoy the process of ordering on line and manage to find someone to help me every time). It's a simple point and shoot camera quite similar to my lost one.

 





 Thanks for visiting,  GM

  1. The lillies are beautiful. Most of my flowers look terrible after my week away during very hot weather. I've been trying to baby them back to health but it doesn't look good for most of them.
    Good for you in ordering a new camera, even if it was with help. I know you're excited for it to arrive now.
    Blessings,

  3. Your lilies are gorgeous :)
    I'm with you when it comes to ordering things online. If it is fairly straightforward I can usually manage it, but anything else needs son's help! Hope you get your new camera soon. Mxx

  8. Your lilies are lovely!
    I used to pack my big DSLR camera around, and it does take great photos, but since I got my iPhone 8, I use that almost exclusively now.

  12. These lilies are very beautiful! Here in the Bavarian Forest they will open their eyes in about 10 days, I think. There is a fine lilie-field near our house since two years, but like you say, I mean to see, that they disappear somehow...

    You have three sons like me?

    It is good, that your middle sone will help you to find a new camera.

    The colours of your flowers are so nice!

    Enjoy the time and be blessed always!

  14. Your lilies are beautiful. I like the big flower pots. Two years ago I planted in my roses - with scent :-).
    Good luck with the camera, it's good that you have help choosing.
    Best regards. Viola
