Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose

Carnation
 
Lily

Rose
 
 A June garden in bloom is one of life's great delights.

(Dianthus, first waterlily of the year, Lollypop lily, David Austen Lilac rose.)

Inspired by John Singer Sargent's portrait:
"Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose".
Love the garden, the lanterns, and the starched white muslin dresses.
If I had been blessed with a little girl, I would have named her after a flower!  Rosie?  Violet?  Marguerite?

In love with summer,

Come join me at the Garden Parties--so many lovely gardens and gardeners to visit!
