Early summer in the backyard

It seems that Christmas is early in our backyard - the Christmas lillies are fantastic, even with scorched leaves from a couple of hot days, then drooping from some welcome rain yesterday. :D

There's a bit of fruit and vegie-type stuff around them...

The lilies look lovely, Luzy, I love the shot with the fruit tree framing them (Y) What is the blue plant behind them?

Thanks, Marrion. Shame the lillies and the plum weren't co-ordinating, as the plums could have been baubles decorating the frame...

The flowers behind are sweet peas. I had used last season's vines just curled up as a bit of a mulch for some Red Runner Beans - the vines made it hard for the black birds to dig the beans up, and the sweet peas self-seeded and clambered up the wires (kind of...). :)

I like the framed one too - has a kind of 'romantic' look to it.

Is that a potted nasturtium I see buried in the lawn? Good idea! :D

Good spotting Pam! (And we'll get around to mowing the lawn again sometime...)

As Marrion and Pam said, I too love the second photo, Luzy, with the fruit tree framing the lilies - very nice photo (Y)
