LILY LOVE

















I love how the people that lived here before us planted all orange day lilies along the path and down by the water, and they planted different colors all along our deck...but no orange. Most of the lilies along the deck are these yellow ones with a purple middle, but when they all bloom there are some red and peach lilies as well. Loving these flowery days of summer!

    1. Exactly Jill. I often say if I could hug my home and hill on the bay I would. Feel so blessed and love it so much. ;)

  2. How pretty - my goodness, you must have been so surprised the first time they bloomed! I love lilies! You are in lily heaven! Love the views that these lilies have, too! The lake is so gorgeous. xo

    1. I was Karen! The first summer we were here I thought it was so neat that it looked like our deck was floating on a sea of lilies. And then to have them all along the water and paths too - I instantly fell in love. ;)

    1. There had been a few different owners before us - so not sure how far back it goes....but someone did great work and I love enjoying them for sure! ;)

    1. It's so nice too, Judy, as they seem quite a hardy little flower and they multiply like crazy! I have divided them a couple of times and given some away. If you ever pass my way I could give you some. ;)

  6. I wish I could send you the picture of my day lilies. I have found a different variety almost every year from the daylily society here. I am digging and separating some of my favorites to bring home when I move.

    1. Oh I bet they're beautiful Margot! That's the wonderful thing about lilies too - they divide so easily don't they? And they're a hardy flower. So happy you're bringing some with you. ;)

    2. I used to go a daylily farm in NH, and I loved the ones I had. I did not bring any down here, but I remember a flower called a chorus line. It was a shade of pink. I have some doubles, and some shorter ones which are doubles. My mom used to say why would you plant them, they only last a day. Yes, but the next day there's a new bloom and so on for about a month. My hibiscuses are like that too.

  7. Lilies are such a beautiful flower! We are enjoying ours also that were planted by the previous owners. :-) If only they lasted longer... Have a great night!

    Blessings,

    1. Amen that Jill! When all is said and done and some bloom at a little slower rate- they're probably around only 2 weeks or so. Not enough time!! ;)

  8. They are gorgeous!! I wish that someone would breed a two day lily though so that they lasted just a little longer! xx
