Summer blooms, etc.

Good morning. Can hardly believe that it is Friday already. Below are some pictures taken this week.

Hope you all have a great weekend. I'm working at my job today and tomorrow, so no gardening those two days. I'm just going to say that the first one is of the Blackberry Lily or Leopard Lily bloom. The rest I'll fill in later, as I've got to get a move on. Click on pictures for larger views.

ooh, That Leopard Lily is so beautiful, so are the rest of the flowers, especially the roses! Love the water drop on the vinca picture, nice! Your sachets must smell wonderfully with the laveder filling.

May I ask what is that lovely
peachy coral colored flower
pictured after the pale pink
rose? I would love to be able
to grow that in my garden.
All your flowers are so very
beautiful. I am getting ready
to post some of mine today,
too.
Blessings,
Sandy

Although we live 5 zones apart, I have lilies in bloom too! Although mine are the lowly daylily as opposed to your lovely exotic blooms.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Oooh, what a pretty raindrop photo! Love the blackberry lily. I had those in my old Atlanta garden, and now I wish I had brought some with me. I've been unable to find any here.

All your close-up blooms are gorgeous and the raindrops on the petals outstanding. I always love seeing your whole garden though, so cottagey and inviting.

Good morning everyone ~ Thank you so much for visiting and leaving your kind comments.

Ami ~ I am thrilled to have that lily. I grew it from seed too. Hopefully I can collect some from these blooms. We'll see. I liked the rain drops on the vincas too. The lavender smells wonderful, and I feel so relaxed when I am working on these.

Gina ~ Thanks.

Sandy ~ Those flowers are from the trumpet vine. I don't know if they would grow up there in NC or not.

Jane ~ I think daylilies are wonderful and wish I could grow more down here. I think it's too hot and humid for the majority of them to grow down this far south.

Tina ~ Thank you. At work I get to sit on my frannie, so it's a relief from working outside.

HHG ~ Thank you. I drool over a lot of your images too. :-)

FloridaGirl ~ I haven't seen them around either. I got seeds from someone. Maybe I'll be able to collect some seeds from mine. We'll see.

NanaK ~ Thank you. I'm glad you think our gardens are cottagey, that is what I've been trying for.

Have a great weekend ~ FlowerLady

Beautiful blooms, FL! The orchid is one of my faves, as is the unfurling vinca! NICE! Your garden offers so many different kinds of blooms...something for everyone. And your sachets are lovely, as usual!

Cameron said...

Everything looks so lush and beautiful. The drops of water on the bloom...refreshing!

All the flowers are lovely here, in pastel pinks, purple and white. I bet the fragrance must be exquisite too. The crystal clear water droplet on the vinca makes it the best picture of the day.
