The Lilies Are Blooming!

There was a day lily in the backyard when I moved in.  They're not my favorite plant, but I have a hard time getting rid of anything with roots, so I moved it to the front where it would get more sun last year.  
It has finally decided to bloom for me.

The Dad has given me bulbs of two other lilies, both of which are blooming now.
There's a dark orange and a deep maroon.  
The maroon one is loaded with buds.  
 This is it's best year yet.

More colors have opened on my sweet peas. 
I wish Blogger had smell-o-vision!

My wagon that The Dad dug out of a dumpster for me is starting to fill in.

My very first zinnia has bloomed.
This one is Envy - it's a lime green color.

And a begonia I bought this year is starting to earn it's keep.

  1. Your flowers are so pretty. I love that begonia. What kind is that?

  2. Oooh, that lime green zinnia is gorgeous. It looks like that first week in June when everything turns from brown to a surreal sort of bright, fresh green. Mmmmmm.

  3. Shasta, ahhh, you're puttin' me on the spot! I threw the tag away so I don't know the exact name, but if you were to look for one, it would be labeled as a pink tuberous begonia. :o)

  4. Thanks, I going to try to find one for my garden. Its beautiful!

  5. Sweet Peas!!! love them.....Popping over from An Oregon Cottage to peek around! xoox, tracie
