It seems as though we are bombarded almost daily with scenes of ugliness, barbarism or brutality – at least if we watch TV at all. The nightly news has almost become too much for me to bear. I’ve been wondering why I am so much happier when I spend time on the north shore. I’m convinced one of the reasons is because I don’t watch any TV when I am there, so my sensitivities get a rest from the otherwise daily onslaught. And I’ve been watching far less TV since I got back from Lutsen the last time. And it has helped tremendously. So, I’ve decided to start a new feature on my blog, at least for a little while, to showcase some of the beauty I am seeing around me each day. I have a ton of pictures from my garden, which has given me enormous pleasure this year. Every day when I turn into our driveway, I smile inside. I’ve decided to share that with the world. So here goes …
One of the beautiful Asiatic lillies we have have in our front garden bed. It just opened, finally, yesterday, and I must say, she’s gorgeous, wouldn’t you agree????

Stunning. I love the transition of colors.
I love lilies. I really should get off my ass and plant some.
Boyd, the pink ones are my favorites. Thanks for brightening up my Friday morning.
