Flower of the Day Challenge

I have found the inspiration for the Train and Tracks post and the Flower of the Day Challenge from Cee at her CeenPhotography blog

Here is a true lily amongst the daylilies ( which I just learned aren’t true lilies after all ) Found in my backyard under the Eastern Redbud Tree.

Lily  “a bulbous plant with large trumpet-shaped, typically fragrant, flowers on a tall, slender stem. Lilies have long been cultivated, some kinds being of symbolic importance and some used in perfumery.”

 

Raindrops on Lily in Dorothy’s Garden

The gray and rain prevented me from photographing  all of Dorothy’s beautiful garden for her family. She tended it so well.   The blueberries ripening, a giant broccoli ready to cut.  New lettuces. And the tomatoes have really shot up.  As I was leaving, the vibrant orange stood out amongst the greens. I am certain there is a special name for this flower. Dorothy kept the tags and seed packets of what she planted in her garden, for future reference,

Giant orange lily with swollen raindrops sitting on the petals.
Just after it had rained.
