A Few Flowers

This afternoon I posted https://derrickjknight.com/2022/07/13/a-knights-tale-145-banking-on-the-bar/

It was hot and sultry outside enough to prevent me from undertaking anything other than photographing

a few flowers which are named in the gallery.

This evening we dined at Lal Quilla with Becky, Flo, Danni, and Elizabeth. The meal was a very happy birthday party for Jackie, Danni and me. I haven’t registered who ate or drank what, but we all enjoyed the food, the conversation, and the event.


  1. We’ve had hardly any bees or butterflies so far this summer. Is it the same for you, Derrick? Have you had any Painted Ladies yet?

  2. Lovely flowery hat, flowery flowers and flowery planter!
    The Yucca is beautiful! We grow them here, too.
    Love the Crocosmia Lucifer! Devilish name…heavenly flower! I know they are akin to irises! 🙂
    Because of the tender loving care you all give the garden, the flowers are enduring the heat so beautifully. Keep taking care of yourselves, too! Stay cool! ?
    (((HUGS))) ❤️

  3. The flower gallery is absolutely beautiful, Derrick, especially the double-blossomed orange and red daylilies. It sounds like you had a wonderful birthday party in the evening, too!

  4. You seem to be experiencing an unusually long hot spell Derrick … is this a normal occurrence your way at this time of the year ??

  5. Beautiful flowers Derrick and the name Lal Quilla is nice. In the 70s my father was posted in New Delhi. We went to Red Fort every year to watch the Independence Day celebrations. My father was in the Indian Railways and got a pass.
