  2. I used to grow these years ago--loved the fragrance, the color, the whole aura they created in the garden.
    Now I am happy when the day lilies make it...stubborn, hardy, can't-be-killed.
    I miss the old garden that was a prima donna, but I love the day lilies.....

    XXOO~~♥

  8. What a beautiful lily! Things are actually starting to poke up through the ground in some places here where all the snow has melted, so maybe, just maybe, we will start seeing Tulips and daffodils in a month!

  10. Laura,

    I had the strangest sense that as I looked at your gorgeous picture of the lily, I could smell the scent which I love. Synesthesia? The power of memory? Perhaps your photos are conjurors of dreams and memory...

  13. Always enjoy your photos and post.
    Love the Lily's.
    Roses are my passion..Every early spring..I plant a new Rose..Maybe I just watch them be planted but I always touch the soil around them to place the spirit of love.

  23. Very nice lily shots. You have to watch the pollen on some, it stains ones face and nose when you smell too close.It is a favorite family of flowers, I even named my dog Lily.

  31. Perhaps it is a bittersweet memory...

    I agree with EG Wow in hoping someone helps you, and with Texwisgirl that it is inside you. Also, it seems to me that you are cultivating friends all over the world and making a difference with your blog.
