Bananas and Flowers, 162/365


I love the way banana bread makes the house smell.  The photo below is for "Movement in March".  I don't have great natural light in my kitchen, so food photography is always a bit tricky.

And more oriental lily photos.  These are a small percentage of what I took, but over the next few days I will share the ones I think are the most fun.







Very busy day again today, but I am thankful to be able to stop and smell the "roses" (lilies)!

Coming here this morning Margaret is truly deja vu!!
I made 3 loaves of banana bread this morning, and just got back from the florist with a bunch of lilies!

Truly, great minds think alike!! :-)

Have a wonderful day, and these lilies are just gorgeous!!

Margaret, It truly is a Lily Explosion!!!! Wow, are they beautiful! And yes, the housework is STILL waiting. I was hoping little elves would come during the night and get it all done, but no such luck. Have a great weekend. Mickie

Goldenhairbear10 - thank you, but I will have to turn this down as I just accepted another award and I think I need to list 10 blogs I admire. I don't usually accept as selecting amoung my many bloggers that I follow is so hard for me... Again, thank you for the honor...
