Sweet and spicy

This Asiatic lily has this sweet, spicy smell...so strong it almost makes Roger sick to smell it.
I only have this one in this color...I think it had 15 blossoms on it.
**************
Lorelei had a dental appointment yesterday afternoon and Sarah said she talked up a storm with the dentist!  Jeremy took her by to see Sarah at work afterwards and she walked over to one of her co-workers and talked her ears off.
************
First thing this morn, well, after I got dressed, I did go down and get some more quilt pieces cut.  Still several to go.  But was a good thing I did it before the day started.  I had no  energy left at the end of the day.

We had another box collection going in the garage...I got busy this morn and got them all broke down and stuffed within a big box.

I always start out just intending to save a few to have for mailing items.  Then I end up keeping them all instead of breaking them down as they come in.  I told Roger we will probably need one before the week is out to mail something.

We got our little yard mowed--and then late this evening I got one of my flowerbeds weeded..I am so glad none of you could see it.  It was a mess...I don't know why I delayed doing it.

All in all, was a wonderful day...always feel good when I get something done.

They look like Stargazer lilies, which I adore.

I'm impressed with how much you got done. Now I have a few jobs for you. ;)

Beautiful flowers, what a shame your husband doesn't like them.
If you have some spare time perhaps you'd like to pop over and clear out all the cardboard boxes my Roger has been hoarding recently?

gorgeous blooms. i remember talking to my dentist as a kid ... that was when the dentist was fun to go & see ... now not so much. ha. ha!! ( :

it never fails for me when i get something in the mail and throw it away & suddenly i find i need it & don't have one to send out something ... so i understated you keep them. very smart. resourceful.

I did not know lilies have a smell, it sure is beautiful. to funny on the boxes. i save them in the top of the living room closet. i went on a spree and through ALL but one away and also threw all that popcorn stuff away. 4 days later, i need a box and the popcorn to mail the camera to Canon. not one.. i now have 3 up there but will get sick of them and start the game over.

Stargazer Lilies!! The scent is so overpowering. Casablanca and Stargazer were the most popular lilies we sold at the Nursery I used to work at. And for the first time I now have some in my garden. Can't wait until I have as many blooms as you do.
I just chuckle at some of the stories you tell about Lorelei.
I dislike weeding so I do procrastinate but do feel good when it is done.
Keep smiling

Hi Rose, I know these lilies. The lilies are gorgeous but the smell is awful especially in air-con rooms.

A wonderful and fruitful day indeed. The lily is just stunning!!! Such vibrant colours.

Beautiful lily Rose. I'm heading to a quilt retreat this weekend and hope to get some things done. Can't wait to see what you are making.

Gorgeous and so many blooms. My mom's had 2 one of which pretty much dried up from the excessive heat we've had.
