Backyard Lilies

By LynneJoyce  
Lilies are associated with death so posting photos of my backyard lilies following my mother's death seems entirely appropriate. This flowered on the day she died so it seems fitting.

The plant was gifted by my next door neighbours as a thank you for my disposing of a broken barbecue for them. I am delighted with it, it adds colour and jollity to my otherwise dull back yard. It's vibrant, sulphur yellow is not to everyone's taste so I did some colour variations in Photoshop (V's 8 & 9) and I like them, especially the violet one.

The photos were taken in the evening and V12 is a deliberate attempt to create a late evening mood. The rest are what they are, perfect for Flower Friday. Thank you for viewing and I hope that you enjoy at least some of them.

Great work, Lynne!

Just a word of caution - I've been told that the pollen can be dangerous for some animals.
Obviously I haven't tested it.

You will always remember your mother when these bloom each year, not that you won't remember her any other time, but especially now. I'll take the yellow, it looks bright and cheerful to me, just what you need.

Sunshine memories, my mum died a long time ago, but her favourite flower was the rose and I always remember her in particular when they are flowering.
