This Year's Bloom 2 HSS
Textures thanks to French Kiss and Kerstin Frank.
I have gardens of many flowers, but lilies occupy them the most. I have about 50 different varieties and many that are favorites. But, this one makes me the happiest. It's first day, it bursts forth with such bright colors---oranges, yellows, pinks, purples. As the days go on, it fades to the pale pinks and yellows in this image. The flower in my photostream above this one, is the same lily...only in it's first day of bloom.
