Walk with me to the back yard and see what is blooming. I follow the wonderful sweet scent and know what is blooming.Can you believe this color? Just look at the perfection in these beautiful flowers. I don't take any credit for these. I just took a wrinkled bulb and put it in the soil and voila....a beautiful flower appeared months later.
These are oriental lilies, because of their scent. I planted them in my little garden by the deck originally. Then I decided to move them, so I did, but I guess that I didn't get all the bulbs. These are a result of that action.
When you plant them, you want to make sure that there are other plants near to hide some of the tall stalks. I leave them in the garden after they are done blooming. Unlike many flowers, their stalks are kind of pretty. I'm sure to dead head them, so that the nutrients all go into the bulb. No seed heads on these.
Look at that beauty. There are no words for this.
I think that the name is interesting. These lilies face up, when blooming...gazing at the stars. Every flower that blooms in my yard is my favorite.... as you can tell.When I pick a favorite, I forget about the next one coming and then that one becomes my favorite. I do love this favorite of mine, but my real favorite is coming soon. What will it be?
