Hi Kathleen, It has been blistering hot here too and dry! Really dry. We have had no significant rainfall for weeks. It is sad to see your lily live such a short life. Still, it was a beauty.

Been so hot here I feel just like your "Stargazer"!
Still beautiful pictures.........xoxo Mom


I am so sorry Kathleen and I understand completely~that's how fast my lilies bowed out this summer. I have cut flowers in the kitchen~'Stargazer' is in the bouquet and it's like having smellavision as I look at your lovely photos. gail


Awwww, poor Stargazer! That "before and after" about wraps up the mood this summer, doesn't it?! I hope you get some relief from the heat and drought soon!

Great contrast of how the poor lily changed over the course of the day. One hundred degrees is just nuts!
