Looking back Sunday -

It's been a while since I did a Looking Back Sunday

Even though I'm "looking back" - these pictures were taken in 2009, these incredibly fragrant flowers are also blooming right now in this year's garden.   

The perfume from these beautiful lilies floats in through the kitchen window night and day.

The only difference this year is that the bloom stalks are about two feet shorter!  The Shepherd says it is because the bulbs are too crowded - he is going to dig them out in the fall and replant.

I would like to take a stalk to work, but I think we have some people who are sensitive to strong fragrances. 

I can't remember the name of this one - but it is related to the Stargazer lily - the one that started it all.  It's also very beautiful and very fragrant! 

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend. 

PS - I'm getting really close to my 800th post!  Any guesses when that will be?

800 posts? I'll guess next week, on Friday! Make sure the Kitties can't get into the lilies, they are quite poisonous.
