Flowers for Christmas!



A warm day forecast for tomorrow at 37deg C so expect I won't be doing a great deal.

The roses are blooming well as are the lilies. The photo I have below is a common Lilium, they seem to multiply and not die out as other varieties of the Lilium do.

My late mother used to have beautiful Liliums and because they bloomed around Christmas time we called them 'The Christmas Lily'. I do have a photo of them somewhere, but for now a photo of the common one.

    1. Thanks. Many plants and flowers are poisonous to animals and humans, pays to be careful.
      Oh yes, your 40 is way too hot for me too, once it gets over 30 to about 33 it's too hot and I love the hot weather if I stay inside.

  3. Great shot of the lily. Hope you have been able to keep cool today. We have 40° on the Peninsula but it doesn't seem as hot as in Brisbane at 32° I guess because it is not as humid. All our melbourne friends are sweltering but they have gone to the beach to lie in the water. We preferred to stay home in the shade and find it bareable.

    1. Thanks Diane.
      Yes, stayed inside and outside in shade. Brisbane is as you say more humid, and it's that that makes it feel hotter. Keep cool, supposed to be another hot one here tomorrow.
