Crash, Rose and Lily

It's been a cool and somewhat wet week and I haven't been outside much.
A large tree limb came down like a spear from high above and I'm so glad no one was out there at the time.  It moved a large piece of flagstone and landed on some plants but no real harm was done.  The piece in the lower left is what broke from it and you can see all the wood exploded off the surface of it as it made impact.

I found this gem of an oriental lily called Sunny Azores
The zonal range is 3 to 9 so we all can enjoy it!

This miniature rose was a gift from my daughter for Mother's Day.  Soon after I received it, it got a little sickly and I had to do a severe trimming and remove the other two that were in it because they had died off so badly.  Anyway, it's taken all summer but it's finally recovered and blooming!

That's about it around here- I've been keeping busy with a some storage organizing in the basement and a little fun with decorating stuff indoors.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!


  1. Liz, I think anything falling really would have hurt someone. Thankfully you and your family were not there at the time. That's the trouble with grown trees, we never know what may break. I love your little basket grouping with the rose. xoxo,Susie

  2. You are lucky there was nobody outside when the tree limb was falling down! You really found a lovely oriental lily.
    Have a nice weekend!

  3. I am so glad this didn't hit anyone. It certainly would have done some damage. Have a wonderful weekend xx

  4. Gosh, Liz, I am so glad no one was hurt! That's what scares me about the storms where the girls are. The neighbors have old, tall thin pine trees; and those things can fall easily. I love that little miniature rose! I am so glad you were able to salvage it. I never have good luck with those!

  5. your garden is looking fresh from all the rain...cool and wet here too! Love that new lily

  6. Wow, glad there wasn't more damage!
    That lily is so pretty, great find!
