Cottage Day Lilies

Day lilies are such simple, easy going plants.
 They don't need to be watered, deadheaded or anything. They just grow and look kind of plant.

I think they are the epitome of cottage living.

Several clumps of day lilies were planted around our little cottage in the woods by the original owner.
I love them!

We are building a storage area here to house garden tools and a safe place for our outdoor kitties to eat their kibble. We planted this clump of lilies after adding a mudroom/laundry/porch.

Don't they make you glad.....just looking at them?

I put together a collage of other orange items in our cottage-marigolds, onions, a rooster,quiche, a teacup and of orange.

Here are two versions of collages that you can print.
One w/o text and the other one I titled 'Orange You Glad?'
I know...kind of corny, but that's how I roll...[smile]
Looking at our lilies made me think about the scripture in Matthew 6. 
 I call it the DO NOT WORRY verses:

Do Not Worry about your life... See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you... But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow.....Matthew 6 [niv]

Worry just takes all of the glad out of our lives and what good does it do?
None what- so- evah! If worries are taking the glad away in your life try giving them to your Heavenly Father. He does love you and He does care!
 Let the glad back in.

Thank you, Jan at Have a Daily Cup of Mrs. Olson for featuring my post

Remember...take time to smell the roses...don't allow time to slip by without enjoying the important people in your life!

Many Blessings, Audrey
