Well the sun has been shining again today - it is certainly a much better summer this year than of late - with the odd rainy days but otherwise lovely sun. I noticed that my pink lily had bloomed while I was looking out the bathroom window. I dashed (well moved as quickly as I could!) downstairs and went out armed with the camera.....


It is a lovely shade of pink and in the picture it looks as if it's white on the edges - it isn't - just a reflection...........



I did some macro shots and you can see that the little darker patches on the petals are actually growths..............


The white lily was looking so gorgeous lit up with the sunshine............


The petals are slightly frilly which is gorgeous..........


Look at the dusty stamens - no wonder bees like it and pollenates other flowers with this amount of powder to walk on......

Not much more to add really. I've been stitching the other quilt for Yvonne's daughter. This wouldn't take as long as I thought it would. So hopefully it won't be all that long before I finish it completely. Then probably another two weeks and my quilt will be finished! It's so therapeutic to me, I just love the satisfaction of seeing them all finished and thinking to myself - I did that!
