They are about a month late, but at last the lilies have started to bloom.
The top photo is a true lily that I have had for many years. It has survived red bug and caterpillar infestations so it's a real keeper.
I'm not sure where the yellow day lily came from. I found it in a pot a year ago and stuck it in the ground. It was just a couple of pathetic leaves so I did not have much hope for it. It appears to be coming along nicely. I knew it was yellow, but did not remember that it was double. Surprise!
This is actually a darker red. I bought it from Larry the Pond Guy when he was closing his business. We still miss him. He was a fount of knowledge on ponds and water plants. I have yet to find someone in the area who is as knowledgable.
Summer has finally arrived. We went from early spring temps to summer in the space of two days. Guess I will open the pool after all.
Toes crossed that all enjoyed a Happy Independence Day!
As always, thanks for stopping by......*s*
