One more. Who ever is interested, have a look in the Archives on January 2, 2014. The blooms are almost identical. So it must be a lily after all :) ?
Calliope from Somewhere about 10years ago said:
For what it's worth, they look exactly like the tropical Agapanthus or Nile lily, with the difference that Agapanthus grows in a big, round ball of many blossoms So, I wonder...

I Googled my hunch and came up with Campanula. Nicely bell shaped. ???
Jim from Nebraska about 10years ago said:
Very pretty, Betty! I love the "pin stripes" on the inside of the blossoms. I agree with Jean, though. They sure look like lilies.

Are you sure those are irises? They look more like day lilies to me.
Calliope from Canada about 10years ago said:
A great capture. So simple, yet so beautiful. I do love the simple things. They always make the more lasting impression on one's happiness.

Hi Christine, the white ones about to open are wild Daisies, which now are open. The white/green leaves is a Hosta. Hugs :):)
Christine from Australia about 10years ago said:
Yes, that is one of Betty's beauties. The colour is lovely with the contrast of the white and green below. Are those marguerites wanting to open in the background? Yes, it sure catches my eye.
