Corner View: Flora

Corner View is a weekly appointment - each Wednesday - created by Jane, where bloggers from all corners of the world share their view on a pre-arranged theme. If you'd like to join in, please leave a link to your Corner View post in the comments at the Corner View link, and be sure to visit other participants you'll find there too. Today's theme is "flora".

Comer Georgia: My yard has a ton of tiger lilies. They're bright, tall, and the first thing I see when I pull in the driveway. I hate to see them go. This guy is starting to turn a bit, and fade out. The lily season is always so short.


Comer Georgia: Morning glories growing up the fence next to the hayfield. They're so vivid! He looks like he is glowing.

Poppies stretching for the sun. This photo was taken in Lubec Maine, a place far north in the US and where the sun is up for a short time of day. Their vivid color against the New England clapboard amid the fog and slate grey Atlantic across the street made for a colorful pop.
 Thanks for visiting my (late) Corner View!

i think i'm finding out, through your blue morning glory here, that is is a weed, is that at all possible? we seem to have white ones ourselves, and i'm forever tearing them out because they grow so wild and suffocate all others?
the poppies are so fragile looking.

I'm sorry to see the lilies go too. I didn't plant morning glories this year.I have to find another spot for them. The leaves always got a fungus that seems to be prevalent by that corner of the garage. So next year I will try again elsewhere.
I do not have poppies,but would love some.
That is an awesome photo with the vibrant poppies against the house and the ocean and sky reflected in the door's window! Beautiful!

Flowers reminiscent of my childhood!

Did you plant the lilies? We have wild lilies (probably planted by some tenants ages ago), but they bloom in the spring - they sign the warm season for us!
