Gilding the Lilies

This should read "guarding the lilies".
For the longest time, with our wet, did I mention wet?, WET, wet, spring, the lilies were in their tight little bud raincoats. And THEN the SUN came out and the lilies started opening like popcorn kernels!
I wish the pictures could do them justice...but they can't.

Which is really too bad; because I'm afraid they may be gone before my special guests come in a couple of weeks.

Guarded/captured here in photos..... the lilies, in all of their gilded loveliness

The last photo where the sun is shining across the stamens and making them golden is perfect.
