White lilies-true lilium pictures

Welcome to Macro Flowers Saturday 59!

White lilies are blooming in the gardens. They are one of the few flowers that tolerate the summer heat.
Our roses are still a beautiful patch of color from the distance but on a closer look, they are all burned by the sun. I tried to take some new rose photos and I couldn't find one in a decent shape.

I took a walk yesterday to see what is going on in the neighbors' gardens.
White true lilies (Lilium), tiger lilies (or fire lilies), as well as the common orange day-lilies are among the June flowering beauties, taking relatively well the hot weather.
Larkspur flowers are still blooming, clematis vine started to bloom and it is full of flower buds.

The white lilies are gorgeous Maia, I love your last macro.

My Tiger lilies are still a few weeks away from blooming and my day lilies are just forming buds.

I love the macro texture of your flower this week, Maia! It looks ticklish. Mine is pricklish, if ever there is such an adjective! ;-)
