As unseasonably hot as it was in June, July has been very wet! All the rain has kept the flowers blooming.
I love this lily. My neighbor down the lane gave me the bulbs two years ago. I couldn't resist trying to get a picture of it with the rain on its petals. I'd love to build a little flower garden in this north east corner of our house. I can picture a few Adirondack chairs and lots of mismatched pots with colorful annuals. We've already begun with my favorite hydrangeas (from my dad), several elephant ears we planted after being at the Biltmore, and these lilys.
The pool is now cool, the flowers are blooming and the grass is growing! Summer!
