Six word Saturday


‘Pictures of Lily.  Lily, oh Lily!’






Keeping it simple, because I won’t be here to respond to comments till late in the day.  It was our wedding anniversary yesterday and I’ve whisked him away to the Yorkshire Dales (or perhaps, he’s whisked me?).  Normally I’d receive a bouquet, with lilies, but I wasn’t here to receive them. Instead I’ve been keeping an eye on some lovely ones that we planted in our garden a few weeks ago.  There are 3 different shades and I’ve been watching them steadily unfurl.  Fingers crossed, the last bronzy ones will be open on my return.

Anyone remember ‘Pictures of Lily’?  The Who.

Happy Saturday!  Don’t forget to share six words with Cate.  See you soon.



  1. how great to have planted lilies – and bronze ones sound nice –
    I have a vase of a mixed bouquet that a dinner guest brought me – one lily has opened and two are firmly closed still – it Iliad been almost a week having them and seeing the opened lily today made me realize how much I love lilies in a vase – they are easy going and they just do their thing – and change every day – anyhow – the six words here could have easily been my words seeing the case today!

    1. Yvette, I love you! The outdoors ones didn’t last very long but they were such a lovely splash of colour. If/whenever I get a bouquet from Mick it always includes lilies. 🙂 I have some spikes of coral gladioli on the hearth now, just starting to look tired.

    1. It’s not too late 🙂 I may be late with the walk this week the way it’s going! I’m still playing catch up on 6WS and I’ve spent too long watching Rafa play tennis. A girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do 🙂

    1. Thanks, darlin’. I was just thinking that today won’t have enough hours in it, but yesterday was beautiful (if a little wet at times 🙂 ) Love the photo of ‘your gang’. So many lovely memories we are both building, sweetheart. Very tender hugs this morning. 🙂 Have a put your feet up day!

  2. Happy anniversary, Jo. I am sure you had a wonderful day together. And the lilies are just so beautiful. Such lovely colors, and I’d imagine quite fragrant! 🙂

  3. When we moved back to the United States from living overseas, my husband planted some lilies. I was amazed at how big they grew.

    I’m glad you had a wonderful anniversary celebration.

  4. Happy Anniversary, Jo and hope you had a lovely romantic time in Yorkshire! These are beautiful – I love lilies. You say you only planted them a few weeks ago? Is that right? They’re stunning and I used to have many in the garden every year until my son hit football age and so many became damaged! Hardier flowers and bushes now!

    1. I took pity on them, sitting outside Aldi desperate for a drink, about 3 weeks ago, Annika. They have repaid in full 🙂 🙂 Thanks, darlin’. We had a lovely time.

  5. I hope you’ve had a lovely time 🙂 thanks for putting this song in my head darling, my laptop has been open at your page for a couple of hours now and I think I’m stuck with the song for a while yet.
    Did you ever have a crush on Roger Daltrey?

  6. The best bouquet is the ones in the garden 🙂 Your lilies are much later than mine, all mine have finished. Mindst you the slugs and snails helped themselves a lot. Hope you had a lovely break and the weather was kind to you. Cloudy and humid here today and when that sun breaks through it is HOT!

    1. I only bought them 3 weeks ago from Aldi. They were looking very sorry for themselves but they’ve come to a good home. 🙂 Thanks, Jude. The weather was very British and we got rather damp out walking, but we had a great time.

  7. Amazingly beautiful flowers, Jo. So precious to have them in your garden. We have some day lilies here, but most have faded already. Happy anniversary! Enjoy your little – romantic – break!

  8. Happy anniversary Jo! These lilies are quite the showoffs aren’t they? Especially the one having a little crying with her tears. Or is that sweat? Either way pretty in pink. 🙂

  9. Such natural beauty, Jo. These are simply stunning. Sending blessings for an anniversary filled with love and beauty. Congratulations.
