I have some lovely lilies to share today…they’re getting ready for Pink Saturday and they are turning out to show off…Ready to open…on Wednesday while it was misting.
Along with their darker pink cousin lilies…
I don’t know the names of any of them, just their provenance…these came from Uncle Arno and Aunt Hilda by way of my mother who gave me a blub several years ago…now I have at least six…and you can see how many buds are in each bloom…I count nine or ten for sure.
I try to keep them trimmed as the spent flowers begin to fade…they look prettier with just the fresh flowers…and I think they keep producing more buds…the white spider lilies are also just starting to bloom…they came from my sister by accident…she thought she was giving me elephant ear bulbs…she got them from her friend, Kathy, I think. They are probably my favorites.
When they first open, they are really star shaped…
They also have lots of buds in each bloom. Sometimes we have so many that I cut them and bring them into the house. Now if my sister reads this, she’ll think twice about digging up mystery bulbs for me again….I think I’ll tag a few to dig up this fall…I should return the favor…it’s the Pink thing to do, don’t you think?
