Another Walk In The Garden

Taking a stroll through our yard I found a few new treasures.  This is the Turk's Cap Lily which, according to my in-house horticulturist, is relatively rare.  We are so fortunate to have this beauty right outside the bedroom window.

What would summer be without a few daisies?  This is a flower that likes the sun, although I see one trying to stay cool in the background shade.

And then there are these small mushrooms which are definitely hiding from the sun's glare.  It looks like something has taken a few nibbles here and there.  For all the discomfort that summer brings there is always the garden and the beauties found there.

"Everything that slows us down and forces patience, everything that sets us back into the slow circles of nature, is a help.  Gardening is an instrument of grace." - May Sarton


  1. I love your eagle eye that makes me look anew at your property. Mushrooms abound here though in much shade, few flowers, and our mushrooms are huge and somewhat less attractive.

  2. Turk's Cap lilies are one of my favourites. We used to have some fabulous yellow ones at our old house and they thrived on neglect. Hardly surprising there are nibbles out of your mushrooms with all those mice you have around!!

  3. I have those lilies and never knew what they were called. I would never have enough lily in my garden. Every year I add one more. This year my daughter brought me MANY from the garden she is removing in the front of her house. They never wilted even a little in the heat. Not the right time to do the transplanting, but better it worked!

  4. That lily is truly gorgeous!
