Obsessed

Lately all I can think about is gardening!
This beautiful Nippon Lilly made it to Alabama from my New York garden.
I am so pleased to see it preform!

Wonderful! Great that you could move it and have it bloom this year! Lilies are so wonderful to have around.

Thanks for your comments today Mary. I wanted to tell you I saw my first Blue-gray Gnatcatcher the other day! SO SWEET and I thought of you!

What a beautiful lily, Eve. I can see why you wanted to have it at your new home. I've never seen a blue-gray gnatcatcher - good for you!

Hi Eve: That is one yummy flower! Glad to hear that you're keen to garden. I would love for you to do a guest post series on my blog. Are you up for that?

Cheers, Yvonne

Daniel Spurgeon said...

Great photo, Eve- I like the composition as well as the subject. I'm glad that you were able to bring some of your flora with you.

Congrats on seeing a Blue Gray Gnatcatcher- they are one of my favorite birds. I had written an article on them last year: http://www.natureatcloserange.com/2008/05/blue-gray-gnatcatcher.html

I was also able to get the following photo of one early this spring:

I hope that you are having a great weekend!

Eve said...

Thanks Tina, Kerry and Daniel. I'll be over later to check your gnatcatcher post Daniel! First...shopping!! ;-)

A lovely looking flower Evie, I wouldn't want to be a in a room with one though.

Eve said...

A little allergic Roy? I'll leave it outside just for you!

Bird Girl said...

Yes, Eve - that has to be really exciting to see a flower from your old stompin' grounds...blooming in your new space - yippee!!! It is a beauty I must say!
P.S. thanks for sending me a black-throated green...now do you have any black-throated blues? I've not see one yet!

Aluajala said...

Gardening looks like a wonderful obsession. It gives so beautiful-looking results!

Mary said...

Glad to hear you saw a Gnatcatcher! I bet that woods around you is loaded with good birds.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi Eve, Love that lily. We have alot of lilies and daylilies also.. In fact, we have one similar to yours --which is named Goldband. Ours is a little different....I know you saw Part III--but when you are on my blog, click on the topic on my sidebar for all of our LILIES and/or DAYLILIES.

Hope you have a great week.
Hugs,
Betsy
