Some More Flowers

Every year during the Easter Season our church decorates the whole church with Easter Lillies and then the parishioners take the Lillies home on Easter Sunday...Susan and I each get a pot and I plant them in the flower bed...These lillies are the result of the last 2 years...They didn't bloom until the 1st of June this year but they were so beautiful that I just wanted to share them with you.

The Hydrangea was a gift for Susan at the end of school. It has been blooming for over a month and is still covered with buds. The Hibiscus is a plant that Susan got for me because of my knee replacement surgery. It is so gorgeous...The center is red...One day it had 14 blooms and is now covered with buds...we had a bad hail storm and the leaves took quite a beating, but it has recovered and is ready to bloom again. Hopefully it will bloom all summer...it reminds me of Acapulco where they grow wild.

Your flowers are just lovely. I am very partial to Hydrangea and they do not grow here, it is too hot for them. I love getting to see them in your photos!
