FRIDAY FLOWERS! :)

Happy Friday Everyone!

I can't believe it is Friday already, where did the week go?!?!

Before I show you my Friday Flowers I wanted to share with you this beautiful treasury "Pick Me Up Pink" that my wonderful Blogger Buddy Erica from Caustic Threads Etsy shop included my "First Magnolia Bloom" photo in :) YAY!

Thanks Erica you rock :)

Check out Erica's other Etsy shop Acrylic and steel where she has her beautiful artwork and Adam, her Hubby, who makes the most amazing knives and also, her Blog where you can learn all about her fun life and see her cute little one, Autumn, who is just the most adorable little girl :)

And now for this week's Friday Flowers! Lilies and Daisies :)

I hope you Enjoy them! :)


I Love Tiger Lilies :)






I have been experimenting, recently, with "bokeh" I am really having a lot of fun with this! What do you think? Do you like this effect?





























A lot of my Lilies didn't come up this year. I think because we had such a terribly wet Winter and Spring that they most probably rotted. I guess I better order some more, any excuse (He! He! :)


I know these are "Technically" weeds but I love them and they are the only thing that will grow in this shady area in my garden in the Summer.












I really hope you enjoyed my Friday Flowers! :)

Have a Wonderful Weekend :)

Happy Painting/Creating! :) T.

Hi Poppy - they are not weeds if you like them, and they are so pretty. It's hard to find flowers that bloom in the shade - keep them!

Erica said...

Thank you for the mention! those lilies are so beautiful!

I agree, I love those lilies! Such wonderful colors.

I agree that plants are not weeds if you like them. One person's weeds are often another person's herbs. Your lily photos are beautiful!

All beautiful photos...and congratulations on being in another lovely treasury...yea T !!!

Oh if only my weeds could be so pretty !
I've always been fond of tiger lilies, they're an old flower that is never out of fashion. Would love to be able to grow them but South Florida is just too hot and humid. Even the people who live here wilt in the summertime.

Lovely images! And I have to say - anything that looks like a daisy shouldn't be considered a weed at all! ;)

Great flowers! A bunch of the Lilies on my property didn't come up this year either. I have to be on the ball to get pictures before they all disappear!
Thanks for sharing!

Who doesn't love lillies? The colors are very vibrant in the photos. Weeds or not, daisies just make me smile! Have a great weekend, T. :)

Beautiful images as always - I love those orange flowers. Well, orange is my favorite color so I guess I am kind of biased!

Have a super weekend!

aaack! i missed friday flowers!!

daylillies and daisies totally remind me of my childhood. my mom transplanted a small section of daylillies in our yard, and they grew over the years to completely surround the house and outline the yard. they are sooo contagious. :P
daisies were my grandma's flower. her tiny den was all daisy themed. makes me happy to see them. :)
