Our first Day lily started flowering last week. They are such faithful colour providers in a garden.
A huge thank you to Cathy and Billy for gracing my crazy horse photo with their Users Awards - totally unexpected but most welcome Smile Thanx to all who voted and commented on the weird horse as well Smile I cropped the white horse's head off when I saw the potential of creating a monster Smile
Have a great Monday
