Wine colored Asian lillyThis unnamed Asiatic lily opened this morning.

Elegant Lady lillyThis first bloom of the pink Easter lily 'Elegant Lady' (Lilium longiflorum) had some difficulty opening properly. The scent of these, like the white Easter lilies, is heavenly.

Sigrun, I have always liked to know the names of things, because then it is so much easier to research them.

Thanks, Joy! Thanks, Karen! :o)
