I thought the Strawberry Candy lily wouldn’t bloom at all this summer. Usually first flowers flower in the last days of July. I was happy to, at about the end of July, finally see three stems grow taller day by day. On Friday 11th August the first flower was in bloom. Each stem has about 12-10 buds. I will be able to enjoy new flower(s) still for about one week. Nice.
I had forgotten the name of this flower so I looked it up on Google where it says it’s also called Turk’s cap. I learned the flower may be from pink, purple and white to brown and even black. I have seen them only in pink and white. I don’t have of these in my garden. These grow in the garden of a friend of mine. Google also mention it’s highly toxic to cats.
I saw these from the car growing on the roadside. As so very often when I see something when we are driving I shouted to my husband to stop, stop, stop. It was a windy day. The flowers were swaying a lot. I would have loved to take some close ups but it was impossible. Instead I took a short video clip.

I have been quite busy and almost missed photographing the apple flowers. On Monday I saw they started to turn brownish already. I quickly took a couple of pictures. I, of course, have plenty pictures of them from years back but, when they are in bloom I can’t resist them. Jacky was very curious about what I was doing. He climbed up in the tree trying to figure out what was going on. Wednesday was a windy day and all the petals blew away.
