Surprise Lilies


Just a short post to share photos of some sweet Surprise Lilies (aka Naked Ladies) from the neighborhood. 

In late (?) spring, small bundles of long-leafed foliage appear, but nothing else happens. The plants even appear to die. One would be tempted to think she had a bunch of "duds." But then, 'round about now, all over town, beautiful pale pink Surprise Lilies appear. 



Worth the wait.




Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word
and believes him who sent me
has eternal life and will not be judged
but has crossed over from death to life.
John 5:24

If you're waiting for something wonderful to happen, hang in there. God is working!
Sending loving thoughts and prayers your way,
Bess

Stoplight Cats!


My company took this photo (with a phone) of their kitties, and look how the eyes turned out! Interesting.

And my own Sweetie kitty is trying to help me as I type this. I'll be back with a new post in a day or two. And to my company ... miss you already! :O)

"The favour of your company has been much felt, I assure you. We know how little there is to tempt anyone to our humble abode. Our plain manner of living, our small rooms, and few domestics, and the little we see of the world, must make Hunsford extremely dull ... but I hope you will believe us grateful, and that we have done everything in our power to prevent your spending your time unpleasantly." (Mr. Collins to Elizabeth in Pride and Prejudice by the incomparable Jane Austen)

Stay cool!

Just Wanted to Share a Photo ...


of my first Hibiscus flower to open! This plant was a gift, and I think repotting it gave it a shock. But now it has bunches of buds and this was the first to open.


Thanks for stopping by! Back in two weeks or so,
Bess
