PITTS, your garden pictures are just lovely! How you must enjoy your view. Talk about a feast for the eyes.

The rest of the pictures are wonderful. What a variety of beautiful plants, shrubs, flowers and more. I just love coming to visit this thread.

My first lily of the season bloomed this morning! I have two groupings of Asiatic lilies growing in my backyard. One type (deep red) were planted in the ground. The other type (a beautiful salmon/orange/yellow color) were planted in a planter. As of today, each grouping contains about 60 pods. I'm so impatient for them all to bloom! I just love lilies....

This shot is the lily that bloomed this morning. The second shot is the same lily about two and a half hours later... Sorry about the photo quality. I took these pictures with my cell phone.

Nice pics everyone.. LadyLily, do you trim the flowers once they start to wilt or they fall off? I don't have any of these and want to get some.

I love the big multicolored clump of azaleas. Maybe because it's still Spring...but I really love them.

Yep, mine shed their flowers a couple of weeks ago, but I think azaleas still look pretty nice even without the blooms. The mountain laurel and rhodie are also gorgeous. I just noticed the asiatic lilies! Apparently they like acidic soil and moisture (thank god) so ended up with a poo-load of them this year.

I love lilies, too but I can't quote lily lady's post for some reason. I got some lilium superbum this Spring, but I understand they'll take a little time to establish. I'll try to post some pics of my lilies in the next couple of weeks.

Here are some of my parents' garden in the Florida Keys. I helped to plant much of it 10-15 years ago. A hurricane's flooding killed much of the vegetation in 2005, so virtually everything that is low to the ground has been planted since then.









Can't really see the canal/dock area (it's just beyond the palm tree), but it's right behind him!

BEAUTIFUL. Do you remember what the ferns are?

I'll have to try to find out. My father planted them about four years ago and they have grown up quite a bit since. These pictures are about three years old, I believe.

Nice pictures! Looks like Kitty got his nose sunburned in the Florida sun?
