A nice shot of this lovely lily Herman. I had many lilies in my garden, but the deer ate them all, so I'll have to start all over again as I do like them!
Rgds., Jim
PS. Should maybe explain, we've had quite a bit of housing development in this area, so the deer now have lost their usual habitat, I feel so sorry for them!
