It’s been awhile since I’ve had my camera out. I hit a dead zone of sorts, what with the crappy winter that transitioned right into a heat wave and drought overnight. But then it rained a little Thursday and a bit more on Friday. On Saturday, I looked out into my little yard and found these lilies had popped up on long, tall stems. I had to take photos, and I set out to walking around my yard snapping away. I looked up to find a robin sitting on the roof not paying me any mind, and then Lucy, the neighbor’s dog calmly watching me.
