Lily Stripes

Yes, there is a theme emerging...  stripes.  Lily stripes is an interesting burnt orange asiatic lily with rusty brown patches near the center.  This flower (from my back garden) had a sprinkling of yellow pollen scattered on some of the dark areas of the petals...  yellow freckles.  The wide striped background of a chaise lounge in the garden gives the suggestion of lazy summer days... long gone for another year.
