Lilies in my yard

Several years ago a friend and I went together and bought lilies from Breck's and we split the cost. The Pink Pearl Oriental Lily is one of the lilies BJ and I bought together. We bought Asiatic and Oriental lilies. Over the years I have learned the orientals bloom later than the asiatic lilies.
My orientals are beginning to bloom, you know me, I have to get up close.
Isn't it beautiful and amazing when you look closer?
My Calla Lilies bloomed a month or so ago. Now they have started their rebloom. Sometimes flowers do funny things on the rebloom. This Calla Lily decided to split. I gave some of these to Teresa last year, and her rebloom is doing the same thing.
Been busy, and not been blogging. Can't promise to blog more, but as time permits I will. Have a photography assignment job tomorrow morning, before going to my 'real' job. I have also been taking some knitting classes. I have knitted for over 40 years, but I am trying to branch out some with my knitting.

You are really getting me hooked on these lilies! I'll still be here when you decide to post again next - I've been slowing down too.

Leedra, I've never seen calla lilies split. Have fun knitting. (I've just started quilting). It's good to be busy.

The Calla is still beautiful though. These photos are wonderful Leedra.

Beautiful lilies, Leedra. Ours have put on a show this year also.

I surely do miss you --but understand.

Please keep in touch.
Love you my friend,

You've got some beautiful lilies and I like that you get up close. Our oriental lilies are also blooming now, but we don't have this pretty Pink Pearl.

I love Calla Lilies! Your special lilies look like their petals shimmer - I expect to see fairies there!

Very very nice Leedra. I like the lilies too.... and a lot less work than some other flowers.

Love the calla lilies! I tried to plant some last year, but didn't put them in a good spot. Will have to try again. We will miss you if you get busy, but I certainly understand :-) I've been finding that blogging takes up too much of my time and tried to slow down.
