Summer Showers!

Hi everyone! I'm so happy to report that we've had a day of much needed on an off showers here north of Philly! This is a Stargazer Lily that Ma gave me about 5-6 years ago. I really tried to get a shot of the drops on the leaves, believe me this year the rain is big news!!!
In the past this flower has been dinner plate big, this year not so much, but I'm still grateful for the display! Mother Nature is amazing, the ground is so hard and dry that water just runs off, so the showers (storms) were scattered today. Love that, giving the ground a chance to absorb some, soften up a bit and take in more water with each successive rain. Hopefully we'll have a few more over night too!
I hope Mother Nature is treating you well where you are!
I'm joining the following parties:

  17. I love Stargazers. I need to move some of mine, they are next to a tree that has grown and now there is too much shade. Here in Oregon we have had crazy weather, too, June was the wettest June on record and now July is about to become the driest July on record. Our humidity is low, that is a saving grace.

  33. Thanks for sharing the pictures - that lily is gorgeous! I bought a Tiny Dino lily and I hate it! I don't know what I was thinking.. I have all soft purples, reds, pinks, and yellows and I bought a CONSTRUCTION color orange lily..lol.

  34. Oh, one of my favorite flowers. I just took a picture of mine last night! The fragrance is wonderful! Glad you got the rain you needed! My BIL lives in Garnet Valley, so I know it's needed. Here in Iowa we've had plenty to share!

  35. Pretty. We are getting tons of rain here in the afternoons making it so HUMID but my grass is nice and green and my flowers are blooming. Of course the people on the island who are vacationing are not happy about the rain:-(

  36. Beautiful blooms! My weather's been the same as yours. I had one puny Stargazer and now my Madonna's have bloomed - they look good, at least!
