~ Flags are Blooming ~



“In my garden there is a

                                          large place for sentiment.

My garden of flowers is also my garden

                                        of thoughts and dreams.”

                                                                         ~Abram L. Urban


Once again, one of my favorite summertime
 flowers is blooming. They always make
me a little sentimental, reminding me
of my mama and growing up in the country.

This takes me back to a little girl, playing on
the porch on a warm afternoon
and seeing mama's flowers blooming
along the fence.

 We called these day lilies "flags",
I guess because they seemed to wave to
us in the summertime breeze.

They're a cheerful reminder of a
time when life moved slowly and
the smallest of pleasures brought joy.




I feel like summer has arrived!
 (even though it's not official yet.)

We are going to the Sunflower
Festival tomorrow.....:)

Absolutely beautiful!!

As I scrolled down, I saw the color, and was expecting cannas, for those were the ones my Mammaw called "flags." Same colors, but more ruffly, like glads.

It's in the FIFTIES here today!! June and Jackets just don't go together.

Your photos are so pretty, Carolyn! I love the daylilies and wish they bloomed for a longer period of time.
Have a nice weekend!

I love lilies, too--but I've never heard them called flags. I like it. Will have to remember that. . .
