L is for lilies

Mrs. Nesbitt's ABC Wednesday Round 3
has progressed to the letter L.
Here you will find links to many other L posts.
L entries without comments can be seen on
ABC Wednesday Anthology.




These spectacular stargazer lilies are ones I bought rather than growing.


This is my favorite fragrant Oriental lily


A simple day lily


Peace lily, one of my house plants,
given to me by Sue Taylor more than 30 years ago.


Even this buck enjoys smelling the lilies.
This is the same buck I showed you 3 weeks ago
but is a different photo of him.

That Peace Lily looks very like 'Lords and Ladies' Arum maculatum.
Good choice for today.

Hope you're doing well.

I always love lilies--in any color.

I don't know why this post reminded me of " Lilies of the field" but it did. Gorgeous, so is the precious Buck photo! Isn't wildlife beautiful, I can't imagine harming a hair on his head!

Hi Granny Smith, I love your lilies. They are so cheerful and the deer is endearing.

Lovwely lilies. A friend sent me some Daylily bulbs, but they didn't bloom this year--hopefully next year.

Beautiful lilies. I had to clear some of mine out as they were growing like weeds and taking over the garden. But I might like to plant a different variety next year. :D
