My lilies are blooming so finally I believe summer is here to stay! This beauty is a stargazer. I have no memory of it being a double.
Two years ago red beetles arrived and ate all the liliums before they bloomed. This is the first time they have bloomed since then. The daylilies just go on growing and flowering. The plain oranges have begun to flower; the named varieties are in bud.
In other news Hurricane Arthur is down south being a hurricane. It's predicted to hit, if at all, south of Cape Hatteras which means it will go out to sea as it comes north. We'll get rain, and most likely high tides, but no hurricane. Besides it's a category one, not very strong. This doesn't mean it should not be taken seriously. In a way these weak storms are more dangerous because they aren't taken very seriously.
There is enough rain predicted that the Boston Pops Esplanade Concert is going to make tonights full dress rehearsal into the performance. All are hopeful that the fireworks will proceed!
Toes crossed that everyone stays safe and dry.
As always, thanks for stopping by.........*s*
