Gorgeous Gals

That's Rose, Lily, Myrtle and Kate.

My editing page has gone walkabout - a windswept rose

 Gorgeous Lillies from Kim and Rogan Ayres who were here on Sunday - of which more later.

Your flowers are always so beautiful, Pat!

I don't have any flowers. But soon I will have a garden, after I move into my house. I don't know what's planted there so spring will tell.

But no plants of any kind in the house as the cats think they are snack food. *sigh*

Pat said...

Ponita: your new garden will be a voyage of discovery - it can go on for years with different plants appearing. How exciting.

LL Cool Joe said...

Wow you have those Lillies growing in your garden? Beautiful.

Pat said...

Joey: they are from Sarah Raven and really paid dividends this year.

I'd love to be able to grow lilies. I have some in a vase on my table at the moment - but it would be something to see them growing outside my window.

GORGEOUS, GORGEOUS Flowers, my dear Pat...The Colors are stunning and of course, the shapes, divine!

Granny Annie said...

I would love Myrtle because that was my favorite grandmother's name:)

Guyana-Gyal said...

All truly gorgeous!

I've been inspired to take pictures of flowers here too. And to get back into the garden.

Kate's wedding dress is a little like my mother's...but with a high neck line and a peter-pan collar.

I loved the fact that Kate's dress was hand-stitched, hand-embroidered.

Can't wait to hear about Kim and Rogan's visit. How exciting.

Lovely, as usual! You can share the prize! x

Séamus said...

The flowers are merely mediocre in comparison to the lady of the house my dear. A true English rose indeed.

Kim Ayres said...

Glad the lillies have come out - I'm always slightly worried when most of them in a bunch are closed that they might not bother...

Pat said...

Scarlet: the white ones in the garden are massive great trumpets.

Naomi: it always seems magical when the garden looks sparse and then gradually all the stars appear.

Granny Annie: one seldome hears it nowadays.I like it too.

GG: weren't the dresses so much more attractive. Those bare shouldered dresses are so boring.
Alice leaves tomorrow - her parents will be there for a day or two and the Uni have laid on two friends for her. She makes friends easily. Her biggest problem will be missing Tom but she comes home for Christmas.

Seamus: you do say nice things and I don't deserve them.

Pat said...

Kim: they are going to last for ages as they are coming out gradually. And they are very fragrant.
I suspect we have over 'll'd the lilies:) According to my dictionary.

You know how much I love your garden and these flowers are are very beautiful. I have always loved Roses an the Lillie are wonderful.
I must look up Myrtle and see if there is any significances behind the plant.

cheers, parsnip

Pat said...

Judy:for my money she was the perfect bride.

Parsnip: do let me know please if you discover any significane about myrtle. i can't find anything in my Shakespearean Gardens.

Pat said...

John: jolly nice of you:)

GYPSYWOMAN said...

and who could not love a lily - and you, as another commenter noted, dear lady, the fairest of them all!

Guyana-Gyal said...

I agree, those bare-shouldered dresses are so boring, they all look the same.

I have a feeling Alice will have more than two friends by the time she leaves Florida, she will have a LOT of fun. I'll email you soon.

Pat said...

GG: I had photos from her and she seems very happy.
