Flowers feed the soul

It’s lily season in New England. I know they only last for a single day, but I love them anyway.

They’re the same, but different. The colors are all beautiful. They’re straight, and they are curly. They are large, and they are small.

They’re like us humans – all different, but all beautiful. πŸ’—

  3. Flowers feed the soul! So true and you never ever can have enough soul food! I have a question, what do you do to your lily plants once they stopped flowering?

    That’s a beautiful array of flowers! I wish we could celebrate the differences among humans as we do among flowers . . . .

    Ours just popped out too! They’re along the edge of the woods and so pretty in orange and yellow. I love the way they spread by themselves and resist dying the second I look at them the way most flowers do!

    Beautiful collection Judy. Mine are done for this year except for an aggressive, old roadside-type thug of one that I can’t seem to get rid of.

  12. We’ve had a huge bumper crop of day lilies this year. There are SO many on each stalk … I wish they would last forever. They are my favorite garden flower, I suppose because they are so dependable and tolerant. Not to mention beautiful.

    I love the day lilies because they always pop up unexpected, and all are different but lovely, just as you say. I love your gardening quote too!

  19. They are just beginning to open here in Maine as well, Judy. I do love them ….daylilies are just plain happy and seem to really speak ‘summer’. And the assortment, quite stunning!

    I liked all of the colors in contrast to each other. I am rather partial to the pinkish and lavender rosy colored ones. The curly-edged ones always remind me of ruffled blouses. πŸ™‚

    I LOVE lilies and daylilies. They do feed the soul. We have a Will Rogers Park in Oklahoma City where I had my first taste of lilies, and they were beautiful. It stays in your heart.

    Your lilies are beautiful! Really doesn’t matter what color they are. Should be the same with humans. Have to admit I worry about you traveling.

    I wish I could have dug up my lily collection and taken it with me to Florida. Not enough cool weather here for them to grow and bloom. I’ll just enjoy your beautiful blossoms instead. πŸ™‚
