Snapshot Saturday, July 26

This week I wanted to show you the giant stargazer lilies I have in my yard. Everyone else I know has stargazer lilies that are waist high with a few flowers on the stem. Not mine. They are taller than a person with twelve or so flowers per stem. (The bush behind her head is a climbing rose, the lilies are the pink flowers next to her head. The tallest stem hasn't bloomed out yet.)

My daughter standing next to our goliath-sized lily. The cat was NOT happy to be in the photo.
(Snapshot Saturday is hosted by West Metro Mommy Reads)


  1. Wow, they would make a wonderful floral arrangement - if you can stand the strong fragrance in your home :-)

  2. Gorgeous flowers, thanks for sharing.
    Hope you're having a great weekend.
    Here's my snapshot

  3. I do love the expression on the cat's face. It's a nice photo of your daughter. We would call those tiger lilies, stargazer is a nice name too though- yours are extremely tall.

  4. Wow! So impressive...and I am envious of anyone who can grow flowers. LOL

    Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.

  5. Beautiful! (The daughter and the cat, too.)

  6. amazing! and coming from the lily capital of the world [with Lily Festival this weekend!] that would def be a prize winner =)
    great share - thanks for the FuN!!

  7. Gorgeous flowers, and I'm sure their scent is heavenly too. What a delightful summer display.

  8. What amazing flowers. I have some lilies, but they are only about kneehigh.

  9. I saw someone else had tall lilies in the neighborhood too, maybe there's something in the soil?

    1. Really? In our neighborhood? Maybe you are on to something about our soil.


I look forward to your comments and interactions! Join in the conversation.
