Speechless Sundays: Orange Surprise!

This beautiful orange lily just popped open this morning in an old pot whose flowers had long ago died. I don't recall these lilies ever being there, so the seed must have migrated. Maybe it's a sign that something good is going to happen. A "windfall" perhaps? Darn, I didn't buy a lottery ticket!

Hi Dan - Good morning to you. Today might be a Cocoa Beach bike ride day!

Posted by John Mayer, Your Beach Area Expert (Oikos Realty, Cape Canaveral, Cocoa Beach Florida) over 7 years ago

Hi Sharon - Today seems different somehow. Maybe all Active Rainers will have good fortune on this day :-)

Good morning John. Love seeing nature show her colors in unexpected places. I think you are right. Today is going to be a great day!

Beautiful, we have so many things blooming around here especially with the rain that hasn't stop for the last three weeks.

Posted by Winston Heverly, GRI, ABR, SFR, CDPE, CIAS, PA (Winston Realty, Inc.) over 7 years ago

WOW John!  That blossom is in your face gorgeous!  Lilies are among my favorite flowers.  I'm especially fond of Stargazers (the red ones with the white edges), but this beauty, you have captured here ranks right up there.  Spectacular!

I went out yesterday and took a bunch of beautiful pictures of flowers myself. I'm still processing all of them and figuring out which ones to use. But, no matter what I was left smiling at the end of the day.

Winston - We've had a lot of rain here too but today will be as beautiful as this flower. Take Care!

Hi Myrl - Stargazers are great! I think Captain Kirk had one on the Starship Enterprise :-)

Interesting John. I did buy a lottery ticket and it didn't do anything for me. The seed might have been "redeposited" by a bird.

Posted by Richard Iarossi, Crofton MD Real Estate, Annapolis MD Real Estate (Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage) over 7 years ago

Thanks for the feature VB. I hope things are going well for you in Vegas.

Posted by John Mayer, Your Beach Area Expert (Oikos Realty, Cape Canaveral, Cocoa Beach Florida) over 7 years ago

That's great Rich....so you're saying this beautiful flower came out of a bird's butt? :-)

Posted by John Mayer, Your Beach Area Expert (Oikos Realty, Cape Canaveral, Cocoa Beach Florida) over 7 years ago

Wow John, what a beautiful color!   I like it with the pink roses in the background too!

Posted by DeeDee Riley, Realtor - El Dorado Hills & the Surrounding Areas (Lyon Real Estate - El Dorado Hills CA) over 7 years ago

Thanks DeeDee - I placed the lily by the roses for effect.

Posted by John Mayer, Your Beach Area Expert (Oikos Realty, Cape Canaveral, Cocoa Beach Florida) over 7 years ago

That's a real beauty, John. Our neighbors have Amaryllis which we've never had in this garden and this spring we had a bright, red one that looked just like theirs. Pretty picture.

Hi Toni - Isn't it amazing how nature always finds a way preserve beauty?

Posted by John Mayer, Your Beach Area Expert (Oikos Realty, Cape Canaveral, Cocoa Beach Florida) over 7 years ago

John- one of my favorite things to do is look at my orchids to see if there are any buds coming out.  I have never seen  lily that color and all I can say is wow!!! What a nice surprise you had!
