The first day lily bloomed this afternoon.
Tatones on Resa’s Tree. They will open soon sending cotton blowing in the wind.

May Peace be with you.
Wild, pre-sunset clouds looking east.
The color remained close to the horizon as the sun was tucked away for the night.

I love ALL of your photos – colour, vibrancy and oh that amazing sky. But my most favourite is “Cotton blowing in the wind from tatones on other cottonwoods in Corrales.” A wonderful, mystical effect, Tim.
Thanks, Rebecca. I expect it will be looking like snow snow.
Ah, Tim! That is exactly what it looks like! And believe me, Canadians know what snow looks like!!! LOL
I meant it will look more like snow soon and it came out snow snow. Between autospell and my bad typing, it’s a wonder I can communicate at all.
😀😀😀You have the best communication style, Tim!
I just commented on your communication interview. Oh let us be unterstood.
Over the years, I have been in many courses that taught how to send a message, but there was only fleeting remarks about listening for understanding. I believe that communication starts with us and must include all aspects of our lives – trees, birds, kitties. I have so much yet to learn, Tim. And that is a good thing….
Yep. Stunning Timothy.
My lord, these are abso stunning.
Eye behind the bazooka has captured real beauty! Those flying cottons can be a bit of a nightmare but they do look beautiful while on flight!
Wow… fiery wild clouds!
Happt Monday, my friend.
Thanks, Marina. There will be more cotton photos. Resa’s tree has lots of tatones as do other cottonwoods.
Oh, can’t wait to see! 🙂
Your photos are beautiful. Do your roses smell good? I love old roses that smell good. I am planting some in my little garden right now.
Hi Flo. Unfortunately, our roses have little scent because it’s so dry out here.
Little scent but magnificent roses anyway 🙂
Splendiferous as always!!
Beautiful flowers. And your skies are amazing, as always.
Thanks, Lizzie. We have skies, you have green.
They are all beautiful photos, Tim, the colors of sky and flower captured through your lens.
Beautiful photos, the Day Lily is a lovely flower one does not see often. I have a poem about a day Lily. Have a wonderful day Timothy.
Thanks, Holly. Did you post your day lily poem?
Hi Timothy, actually it’s a poem by a friend who passed away a few years ago. I will post it. Your day Lily has inspired me.
Stunning roses, lilies and skies! 😍
Luscious flowers and skies, Tim. The cottonwoods here are about to explode as well. 🙂
Thanks, Mary Jo. We’ll have to compare cotton snow storms.
Beutiful, all these colours of flowers and skies! I especially like the “paper-look” of the Graham Thomas rose on this image.
Thanks Heidi. The David Austin roses really do look like paper. I didn’t like them as much as hybrid teas at first, but they are so hardy that I have come to respect them and enjoy their blooms then other roses are suffering from the drought, and late frosts.
With roses, I like the many varieties and the surprising hardiness of some.
Ooooo la la! Made my Monday Evening!
Thanks, Nancy. So happy to make your evening.
You caught some beauty there, Sir.
Pretty flowers – had our first Asian Liliies bloom a few days ago and the very next night a raccoon decided to dig up the entire plant and scatter them across the landscaping – just the new one, it left the other mature ones alone. Gathered them up and replanted them on the chance they can survive – the main issue has yet to be dealt with… but it will ha!
Hi Brian. Those pesky raccoons. When we grew corn, the raccoons would pull the ears off the stalks, peal the husks back, eat the most tender ends of the corn, and then they threw the rest of the corn of the ground. The most wasteful critters I’ve encountered. One time the raccoons got into the lighter fluid that was on a shelf in our outdoor kitchen. They went berserk and trashed our outdoor kitchen. Good thing they didn’t figure out how to use the lighters.
WOW just WOW!!!💖
Yellow roses have always been my favorite!
Yellow roses have always been my favourite, such a gorgeous photograph of one! These are stunning!
Thanks, Al. Yellow roses are not my favorite, but they are blooming and beautiful, so I love them.
We have a clumph of Day Lilies in our postage stamp. They are full of buds. Soon, a brief glory!
It’s nice you have a bit of growth and color in you little space outdoors. Thanks, Resa.
Stunning! Those roses are beautiful ..
