Thank You, Sir, May I Have Another?

One thing I definitely hope to add more of in my garden is oriental lillies. I think they're spectacular--the scent, the splashy color, the slightly ruffled edges to the petals. I like all of it. I started with just two Stargazer lillies planted earlier this year and the first buds on one of them has just opened. I think the buds got a little toasted in the recent heat wave, so they aren't perfect, but still ... wow!

And I'm not the only one who loves them. My cat Linus greeted me today with his white mustache dyed orange from the lilly's pollen. Apparently he finds the scent irresistable too.


  1. it looks beautiful.I photographed some of Sallyanne birthday cut flowers and one looked similar to yours.I will be trying to grow some next year though...

  2. Gorgeous! :) Glad to see that Linus approves of the lilies... does that mean he's forgiven you for cleaning up "his" nook a few weeks ago? *grin*
