The lilies are blooming their little heads off..
Someone wrote in one of our local papers that the Daylily ..well the common Ditchlily actually..should be our little town's official flower..the roads are lined with them at this time of year..not to mention our driveway...and some of our dishes..:)
I have lost the driveway battle so now I hope they just keep multiplying..
I prefer REAL daylilies:)As in the first photo..
To me they are like Irises..each so different and delightful.
My favorite still..Maggie..and she's again back in town.♥
The yellows and peaches are also appearing in corners of the gardens..
and I seem to be gravitating towards peachy colors in food..
The grilled shrimp are a staple here..thanks to Bobby Flay..
and the brined pork with a gorgeous blueberry peach salsa..well that's from the queen of colorful healthy dishes..Sam..@ My Carolina Kitchen.
I can make that salsa in my sleep I think after only having made it once..
It's pretty to put together and I could eat it by the spoonful.
C'est si bon!
That darling little 3 year old is my daughters friend Amy's youngest one..
I could not stop snapping their photos..
In the last photo..a seagull landed in the pool:)
I bought a book at Winner's (TJ)..it said watercolor..I felt the paper..not watercolor at all..in fact I found it a bit glacé..But the cover was sopretty and it reminded me of our trip there..so I bought it..
You know what?
I find it is fun to try watercolors on different paper..
It's large compared to what I am used to..so lots of flaws if not all flawed..but it's funny..I feel like it is Layla and that day♥
