Lilies flowering...

13 comments


My daughter gave me 50 mixed lily bulbs for Easter. The ones that are flowering now are gorgeous. I took these photo’s this week….


I have only had a small problem with lily beetles so I’m very lucky to have so many flowering and many more in bud. The scent on the patio from the ones in pots there is really powerful this evening. I can’t wait for my daughter to see the results of her thoughtful gift. :o)

Hi Sheila, some very nice lillies there, unusual for a mixed collection, Derek.

You lucky lady, they're gorgeous, especially the last one.

Thanks Derek and Steragram, It was a lovely gift from my daughter. They are giving me so much pleasure. There are some with very fine leaves and long flower buds too just opening up. I can't wait to see what their flowers are like.

A very special present and she will love them when she sees them.
All my lilies were from last year and really didn't do very well at all but slugs did a lot of early damage. I shall treat myself to some new ones hopefully!

Wow! HB, what a lovely gift and aren't they just beautiful?!

Thanks everyone, the scent is so strong now. They seem to be loving this hot weather. The fine leaved ones opened today and they are more trumpet shaped and I think they are really pretty, yellow and white.
