It's hot .......

..... and we have Lilies blooming and 13 year Cicadas emerging. I'm off to Scotland next week and will be back sometime in June.

The Lilies bloomed this morning. I love the color.

The Cicada nymphs are taking over one of our large trees. Once they molt they will turn black with bright red eyes. I'll have to ask hubbie to watch our peach tree and red bud tree since they still have fairly slender branches.

The Peonies are still looking good.



Since I am going out of town I might not be participating in Bloggers Quilt Festival this coming week. I'll have to think about that. It starts on Friday. Thanks to Amy for hosting this again, it's always wonderful. The link is in my side bar.

Your blooms are gorgeous ! Those cicadas are everywhere, their skeletons are covering all the outside furniture, trees, flowers.
I'm glad it's only every thirteen years :)
Enjoy your trip home, eat a pork pie for me, it should be a lovely time of the year...

What a great shot of all those cicadas. I usually only see the empty skins. Have a great trip.
