Thank you. My first photo post on CD after posting for over 4 years!

P.S. My 11 year old daughter had to help me.

Don't count your lilies until the last deer passes!

I'm busy caging everything.

Beautiful lily.

NK....it's BEAUTIFUL! They got my apricot ones, but so far, I've got 3 plants which are pink w/ a burgundy and yellow throat that they haven't bothered yet. I'm SO crossing my fingers. Come to think of it, they got ALL of my others...every one. Stupid deer!!

Lovely flower. Lovely story about your daughter helping you. Lovely that you shared all that with strangers.

Thanks, no kudzo.

Thanks all for the kind comments. If DD can be patient I might be able to start posting my own pictures soon. I swear- it is so instinctive with these young kids. I know they get experience in school but she is so brave she tries everything and hops all over the keyboard it makes me dizzy. "Slow down, I want to follow what you do" I yell but she is a whiz.

I hear you! If we get a brand new tech gadget in the family, the kids are always the first to figure it out. HA their time is coming! Some day, it will be his/her turn to be the frustrated, headscratching elder.

Of course, mine (most young adults now)....can't resist the occasional jab at us old timers...you know, something along the lines of, "What's the matter? Too technical for ya there, Mom? It's so EASY a kid can do it!" Sometimes, I can't resist a return jab, just to try to regain my pride, by saying, "Yeah? Well I can spell and do math without a calculater!"
