Beautiful Lilies


Hi everyone, again today I am posting yet another of my flower photo's, this one is of my gorgeous lilies which are now just coming out. I love them and the perfume of them I find is so hypnotic and its also the favourite flower of my mother, who also had them in her garden.

I want to thank Jules for her lovely comments yesterday, about not feeling compelled to post a card daily. I have been making cards but not for posting but for Christmas, they are just for the locals so they are the quick turn around type which I dont feel are good enough to post, so it maybe a couple of days before I find I have enough time to create one for posting.

Thank you all for your love and loyalty, with hugs and kisses, Shirleyxxxxxxxxxxxx

They look lovely. I like stargazer lilies, but they can be a bit strong in numbers. I was in a choir once and on performance night they pushed out the boat and had huge displays of flowers, as the church was a bit larger than we were used to. The lilies were so strong and so numerous that one girl fainted! LOL It was a beautiful display though, and I love the look of them.

Hiya oh Shirley I have so missed visiting you and what a fantastic picture they are fabulous. I got the same lilies and too some photos but then my mum came to stay so I never did get round to posting the pictures. Mine have gone over now because of all that rain I have one Star Gazer still in flower and smelling like heaven lol. They do make you feel cheerful don't they

Big Hugs

I love lilies.

Sounds daft, but thanks for your thanks!!! You are so sweet.

I bet even your Christmas cards are beautiful. I haven't got many done yet - perhaps I need to try harder!!

Love Jules xx

They are stunning :-D. I planted some of those because they flower in August and my Hubbys birthday is August. They have promptly flowered in early July every year so far :} Juliet
