Double DayLilies In A Sweet Container...




My friend Leslie...

Over at "Leslie Jane Moran" blog...

Gifted me this adorable wee 9 vessel in a wicker basket bud holder...

I FINALLY found the perfect flower to use in this container...

Do you not think this looks absolutely sweet??

I was very pleased with the results...

I had tried it earlier...with Lily-of-the-Valley...

But I believe it needs the much larger bloom of this double Day Lily....







Thanks again Leslie...

I know I will be able to use this for many more wee arrangements...


























Hope you are all having a great day so far....

Kinda dark and gloomy here...perhaps finally some rain!!!

I have just put Sweet Cheeks down for her morning nap...actually about 20 minutes ago...

Just enough time for me to do this post...as I have so many things to share!!!

Hopefully she will nap again this aft...after Grampa and I wear her out!!!


On the menu tonight...

Something easy...defrosting some Spaghetti Sauce....YAY!!!

And....also a salad...hmmmm? Maybe something with cukes in it!! hahaha!


Enjoy the rest of your day...

                                   Cheers!  :o)

  3. Beautiful! What a sweet basket of bottles for arranging flowers. I agree that the fuller blooms really make quite a show. Hugs. Pam

  8. Hello!
    Those are absolutely the most beautiful lilies I have seen in awhile! They are big and bold and look quite content in that pretty basket. Your little Vivian is an adorable little girl. Look at those cheeks! Well, you have a nice dinner and hope the weather cheers up. (We're expecting a storm right now but it's teasing us with very humid weather.) Thank you very much for visiting my blog :) I do hope you stop by again.
