Cee’s Flower of the Day

Ronovan’s Haiku Challenge, prompt words: HOPE and UP

Our Weekly Photo Challenge: SUMMER

I was wondering which photo to choose to represent Summer and walked out of my front door to be greeted by the first Stargazer Lily to open this year – mmmmm that scent – mmmm those colours – says Summer to me.

What would your SUMMER photo be – to join in, leave a link in the comments.

  3. Beautiful flower! You’re right, it does represent summer. Lovely summer haiku too. You always blend the challenges flawlessly and in a way to please all the senses. 😉

  4. I agree about the beautiful scent of Stargazers and the detail on the super close-up shots is so vivid. When I worked as a florist one of my jobs was removing the pollen from the lilies, for mess and allergy reasons, and I find myself holding back doing so to the ones in my garden. Rather leave them as nature intended now that I can.

    • Working as a florist is one of the jobs I think I might have enjoyed. I know the stamens can stain clothes. I’m enjoying watching the stamens go through their different stages, I’d never noticed before taking these photos how much they change from day to day.


  5. Great detail on the lillies! I have been enjoying summer from a boat over the past week and share this link to my summer post

  11. Stunners, aren’t they? I don’t know what has happened to mine ~ four years ago I had an amazing display, now I’ve got about five puny efforts!
