Lilies & Lions in my City

About a week ago,
we were surprised to see these beautiful purple/pink lilies
growing all around our shed.

The joys of moving often - you never know what plants are growing in your yard!

This guy jumped up to get in the picture.

My tomatoes!
The only thing truly flourishing in my garden. It is SO dry here.

I love the way the lights showed up in this shot.

A light - up hula hoop!
Some of the women were doing two at once and they could keep them up for ages!
It was crazy.

I am going right over to ebay to see if I can get one of those hula hoops (if anyone has it, they would - right?)
Florida - those tomatoes should be great, you must have the longest growing season. And love the lillies.

The lilies were sure a nice surprise!

I don't think I've tried doing a hoola hoop in 30 years! I yiyi, I'm pretty sure I won't be trying it again for another 30 ;-)

Cheers, jj
