Thanks for the pic, 3pb, they've obviously got this date built into their flowering calendar.

Lovely are nt they your welcome Paul hope you enjoy it when it flowers for you. Not sure if you get lily beetle there watch out if you do as I ve found lily beetles on these and my imperial above.

We do get lily beetle, however, they don't show up until late summer when everything is winding down. The birds around here do an excellent job keeping them in check so it's really not a problem.

With the cold weather we have had so far no sign of any lily beatled 🐞 thank goodness this spring. Wish the birds around here would your lucky your birds eat them Paul.
