Thank you so much, dear Annie - these blossoms were growing alongside a gravel road - as well as wild columbine in the same hues. Happy hugs (O:

Oh this is super Suz - doesn't she remind you of a balletdancer in orange tutu, standing on points?

Any minute she is going to waltz off and whirl round that summer stage! My Mom used to call these lovely flowers "Tiger Lilies" but I don't know if she was correct.

You have certainly captured the essence of this shy little lily, well done - LIKE a lot!

Warm hugs,

Similar lily lives in our mountains in Slovenia. It is very rare,therefore is under protection !

Hello dear Suzi!

Wonderful wild lily! I love the contrast/mix of orange and green, perhaps an australian?:) and a very beautiful photo!

Best greetings from China-Germany, Udo

Thank you, dear Hazel, for your imaginative comments - I always look forward to them! I have always loved lilies, though have rarely seen them in the wild - a memorable treat! There is some correlation between my given name, Susan, and lilies - I like to think I have a natural affinity for them. Happy hugs, dear friend (O:

It was wonderful to see these lilies growing along the very rural dusty gravel road, urigeller. There were also nearby wild columbine (aquilegia) in deeper hues of orange and gold. Thank you for your welcome visit and information. Friendly greetings to you in Slovenia from Oregon (O:

A happy hello, dear Udo, and thanks very much! I know you love lilies - yours will be popping out of the ground soon now! We had a lovely sunny and mild day today after a stormy heavy rain for two days. Happy hugs (O:
