The Color Orange....

 The lilies are blooming and  look very nice. The flowers of this second lily hang their heads down. So you miss some of their beauty. The little spots have a purple look to them.They are tall plants too.

 Here is the daisy my daughter gave me for mother's day. They do well outside, but I have never had one grow back after being planted in the ground. Any clues? Are they just annuals?
A tinge of orange in the setting sun, completes the day. You can see the bluebird house here. I still have not been able to sneak a picture of the bluebirds.
 Today I am going to the funeral home. A beautiful lady, that used to hire me to watch her sons ,has died. I always thought a lot of her. Three of her sons passed away before her., one at 50, one at 40, and the youngest at 25. Two from heart attacks, one from an accident. The loss of her sons had a toll on her. I think she was strong to the end. May God bless her soul.xo


  1. Love your orange theme... :-)

    Sorry about the loss of your friend. Poor thing, all those losses, must have taken a terrible toll on her. -sigh-

    Gentle hugs,

  2. I love tiger lilies. They are so pretty and fun.

  3. The color orange would be right in style here in "Big Orange Country.":-)
    That is probably a Gerber daisy, and I think they are annuals.

    Blessings on you as you have a day devoted to honoring the memory of someone special.


  4. Sorry about the sad day. Your orange flowers would be right at home in my yard!

  5. Your lilies are such a beautiful color!

    I'm so sorry about your friend. I don't know how she coped with so many losses in her family. So sad.

  6. I love orange and especially orange lilies. Your tiger is gorgeous. Our Mini Wee's planted some last year and they are blooming now.

  7. Susie,
    I love the color Orange, and I am told it is the happiest color. How fitting it is to post these lovely flowers on the day of your friend's funeral. She sounds like such a strong lady, and one could really learn from her.

    Love your orange flowers, Susie. They made me happy today.


  8. Sorry to hear about your friend. I love orange too and Lillys are my favorite.. You take care. Hugs, xo

  9. beautiful flowers for sure. sorry about your friend honey. very sad...

    hugs, bee

  10. Hi Susie, I love the tiger lilies. My dil has some like your second picture. I am sorry about your friend. Depending on how close the losses of family members could have something to do with her death. Have a wonderful day and I loved the picture of the sun through the trees. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

  11. What gorgeous flowers. I never think to plant orange, but I love these. xo Laura

  12. Didn't read all of the other comments but the daisy is probably a Gerbera Daisy and it's an annual in our zone.

    So sorry about your friend. When I was younger and all about me, I always thought the worst thing in the world was not to be able to have children. Now I know better. I learned from my husband who has two sons that have nothing to do with him, and my Aunt who has lost two of her four children. Way worse. So sorry for your friend. I might be speaking out of line, but when you think of her, think of her as happy and with her family once again.
