I’m joining Cathy at Words and Herbs for the last day of her third annual Week of Flowers. She writes:
“Please join me in making December a bit brighter. From Wednesday, November 30th through Tuesday, December 6th, create a post. It can be one photo, or more if you like. You can post just one day or all seven. But do leave a link in the comments so that we can all see what you have found to share!”
Thank you for hosting, Cathy, it’s been a beautiful week!
Any beauty Eliza.
Sorry for the typo! I meant Another beauty Eliza!
Thank you, Cindy! x
What a beautiful picture!
Thank you, Anne!
Great capture, with the raindrops coming into focus on the stalk and wonderful shape of those sweeping petals.
Thank you, Allison, one of lovely woodland natives, Lilium canadense.
That’s a beautiful flower and a lovely photo with the fern and raindrops. I can’t identify the flower though…. .? Thank you so much for adding to the beauty this week Eliza! 🤗
Thank YOU for hosting, Cathy! That is a Lilium canadense, Canada Lily or Turk’s Cap lily, one of our woodland natives.
That is a new one to me. Thanks Eliza.
Reblogged this on Anita Dawes and Jaye Marie.
Thank you, Derrick!
I love this! Like a fairy umbrella!
IKR? 😉 Thanks, Dale!
Adorable and lovely.
Orange and green are such pleasing colors….would make a beautiful skirt for a Dryad…
..and I love the lighting on top of the lily..
Thank you, Alice! It does look like something a fairy would wear. 🙂
Beautiful capture and we’re still receiving more rain than snow!🙂
Thank you, Susan! Do you think we will have a white Christmas?
I keep hoping and checking the extended forecast every day, but so far it looks like Santa might need to bring his umbrella.🙂

The green is as pleasing as the flower; they complement one another beautifully.
Thank you, Linda. Such a lovely woodland native.
For some reason this makes me think of garden scenes in Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”
It would fit in beautifully! Thanks, Barbara. 🙂
To my way of thinking, few sights are prettier than raindrops on flowers.
Agreed, so fresh a beauty!
Well captured, and it reminds me how dry our 2022 summer was. 😜
Thanks, Hien! Yes, our lilies made a poor showing this year.
You reminded me of the Tiger Lillies found on the trail from Stehekin to Rainy Pass. https://higheredtechtalk.files.wordpress.com/2022/12/suiattlerainypass2018-241.jpeg
May be one and the same… this is Lilium canadense, Canada or Turk’s Cap lilies, or at least, yours may be a similar species.
The water droplets on this one really make your photo, Eliza — thank you!
Thank you, Debbie. It was one of those misty rains, so perfect for flower photos. 🙂
So pretty. It looks like it’s preparing to take flight.
🙂 A flight of fancy… thanks, Kris!
A lovely final entry!
Thank you, Belinda!
Great shot…what is it?
Thank you! Lilium canadense or Turk’s Cap Lily
Thank you, Judy. We’re always thrilled when these bloom.
I know I’m not the first one to mention this, but fairy umbrella is also what I was thinking. Good to keep off the sun or the rain!
Yes, a lovely hat or an umbrella!
I recognize the Canada lily from our 2012 visit to Massachusetts. The ones I saw didn’t have raindrops on them.
Fine misty rain makes the best raindrops!
So beautiful it looks unreal. Great photo Eliza!
Thanks much, Maria! x
It’s so beautiful✨.
Thank you, Anita!
🧡 Stunning composition 🧡
Thank you, Donna!
I’m just catching up with your week of flowers. What a beautiful set it makes! It seems like just yesterday that you could look out the window and see them. All the same, I had fun in the couple of inches of snow that fell here last night. So pretty. (Especially since I am retired and don’t have to worry about driving!)
Thank you, Julie. Being retired sure does take the stress out of inclement weather. We can usually just wait it out. 🙂
Eliza, this photo is a beautiful capture. Sorry I missed joining the week of flowers, but loved checking out your posts. Longing for spring now.
Thank you, Susie. We’re almost to solstice and spring will be here before we know it. I actually enjoy the cooler season more than I used to. 🙂
I so enjoyed this dose of freshness and summer brightness.
Thanks, Jet, glad to know it!
Great capture of a beautiful flower. I’ve only seen one once, some time ago.
Thank you, Tom. Rodents love the bulbs and deer the flowers, so they are becoming more rare around here.
Your week of flowers is beautiful and a bright note on a cloudy day!
Thank you, Denise, glad you enjoyed them!
