Daisy ????

Think this is possibly a daisy, but not sure.
The top photograph I have used in several cards, and a calendar.

Lilies

I like these lilies with the rain drops on them. The top photo is either an Asiatic or an Oriental Lily.
The bottom photo is one of my Orienpet Lilies.

Tree Swallow

Early this morning I went outside to photograph the flowers while they still had dew on them. Before I made it back inside the Tree Swallows caught my attention at one of my Bluebird houses. I took several photos, but I think this is my favorite.
