Lilies of the Field...

Well, actually lilies in my sunny flower bed down by the road. They have been weeded a dozen times this year (at least!) and mulched and they seem to be happy about that! I can't remember the name of these particular hybrid lilies, but I really like them. I've planted a long area of lilies and the next clump will be blooming maybe next week.


Anyway -- this is how I'm dividing my time this week -- pulling weeds and quilting. I've been working on a couple of baby quilts, but none are finished yet -- hope to finish by early next week -- I'll post pictures then!

Gratitudes:

Blooming lilies -- God's way of thanking me for weeding them!

Bill staked the lilies I have blooming in the front of the garage -- they were falling over the sidewalk.

The storm that was promised last night was not the storm we got -- no tornadoes, thank you.

Oh those are gorgeous ones! Everyone has been showing their lilies, and I never thought about it, but we don't have any! Probably because I hate to weed!

We're thankful for no tornadoes both your way and ours. I plan on playing in the garden today... I've got a week's vacation....

Thanks for the visit -- have added you to my Bloglines. Wow, I've missed a lot of your good stuff! I'll be back.

Glad for you, regarding 'no tornadoes' - we had our share of wind damage in western Nebraska, but thankfully, nothing major.

Gorgeous lilies! I just inherited them from a co-worker, but we don't know what color they are. I hope they are as beautiful as these.
