And now we return to our scheduled programming.....
Wow, nearly a week since I blogged?? I have had a busy week and had the rellies to stay last night. But now the rellies are gone on their cruise and MB has disappeared off to Berlin for ... um .... something - and I'm back.
We are finally getting a sunny day after another week of rain and wind and my lilies have bloomed........excuse the slight blurring of the images, there is a bit of a breeze still.....reminding us more torrential rain is expected tonight and tomorrow.
My sweet li'l ol' Missee Bug at Ladybugxing asked what the lilies look like in full bloom - well, honey, here is the whole plant........stunning, isn't it? They only grow to about 18" - wouldn't they look magnificent on a 6' plant????
And some of you will remember the Day Lily bud I posted here... well, here is the fully grown bloom, isn't it magnificent? So many shades of orange.....These lilies only bloom for 24 hours (hence the name) but I get lots of buds that bloom at different times, so I get about 2 weeks of this glory.....
And I mentioned to you that I had found the bulbs under the shed? Well, there are some I missed and every year, one or two resolutely grow and bloom where they are hiding. This one is behind the shed.
Finally, as it's Saturday and it's Meet and Greet time, a caption contest for my blogbuddies.......Remember, keep it clean - familyblog and all......
Although this isn't a real competition (no prizes, sorry) I do read all the captions and pick my favourites.
Last time (here) I was torn between loads of good suggestions until the last moment when Carmi suggested
who is, of course, who Pandora was named for........and then a late entry from RCA confused the issue, because I did like her caption
“Let me explain it again Schrödinger.... just because I'm in the box doesn't mean I'm dead”
.......SO made me consider renaming Charlie Schrödinger [grin]
So it was a tie - Carmi in London, Canada and RCA in London, England.....
oops - nearly forgot.......[hollers southward] Happy Bastille Day!! to French people everywhere! Hope your bals des pompiers were the best ever!!
