Fiery Orange Dwarf Lily

That time of year is here again, as the flowers bloom and add colour to the garden. The fiery orange of this dwarf lily, recently potted and given a spot in the garden, caught my eye, and lens.

Shadows – Lily of the Valley

I have posted photos of these pretty little white flowers before. On this particular day, after a short rain shower. I noticed the shadows cast by the sun. The flower pot was in just in the right spot to catch the evening sun. It does add up to a pretty picture, especially with the rain…

Industrial Robin Red Breast
