Hi Janet, you are back! I hope, you had good and not so hot time.

Your Lillies looks very nice, I have no Lillies this year. But in the garden of my father - wow, they are so big, much mor big than my which I had the last years.

Oh what lucious lillies you have! I really must have the yellow stargazer. Gorgeous!

Janet said...

Lynne, you are so right. My yard is very fragrant right now.

Sigrun, the weather was actually extremely hot, as most of North America laboured under a heat wave. We would have to take refuge in air-conditioning on a regular basis.

Sandy, I've fallen for that yellow Stargazer too. And unlike most Orientals, it is actually pleasant to my nose too.

Hi Janet:

Killing some time so I decided to checked out your blog.

Whenever you thin out your garden don't forget about passing some on to me. Your lilies are beautiful especially the Freak Stargazer...hint, hint. There's others I like as well and will make you a list.

Bye for now,

Silvana

Silvana, sorry no immediate plans to thin out the lilies. You'd have to smuggle them in while your hubby wasn't looking, anyway.

Mind you, those Easter lilies have produced a lot of bulblets. OK, I'll pot them up for you...
