A Visit to a New Friend

I recently met a wonderful lady , Diane.  She has a greenhouse full of fabulous flowers - and I was invited to come and take photos.  Today I'll show you the lilies she grows - they are amazing.
 The biggest lily I'd ever seen - at least 10 inches across - and the scent was so powerful you could smell it from several feet away.  This one was new to her greenhouse, she's not sure what it might be.  But for sure it was not anything she had planted.  A delightful surprise.
 The colors were amazing.  Diane knew the names of all the lilies - I didn't write any down, next time I need to do that.
 Wandering about the greenhouse was such a treat - so many lilites.
 Hard to pick a favorite - the bright yellow one really caught my eye.
 This lily, with its unique coloring had not been in bloom the night before, so it was a surprise to Diane too

 Such loveliness
 This lily was facing downward so I had to take the photo up towards the top  of the greenhouse.
There are so many other flowers in Diane's greenhouse that I will show you later.  And I've been invited back to see the Dahlias when they are all in bloom.  Thank you Diane.

When the Lord promises to take care of "the lilies of the field" he certainly keeps his word! Theses are beautiful blossoms and Diane is a nurturing caretaker. I'm sure she appreciates your skill with the camera, too!

Beautiful! Lilies can be so extravagant and gorgeous - colorful, strongly scented, and showy. It's amazing that the largest one she has is a "volunteer."
