Gilded by Lilies

Lilies-SM

Two lilly plants.

What it took:

Pulling out all plant life around the general area where I thought the lilies might be.

Hope you don’t pull up the actual lilies.

Suppoting the tall stalks on an arbor and, in this case, an old broom handle.

NOT watering because we’ve had so much rain this season, watering would have done more harm than good.

Telling friends and neighbours when they start to bloom. The lilies are true performers and seem to thrive on attention.

Breathing deeply. Theses blooms give off the most amazing aroma. Much more pleasing than the off-gassing from the cosmetic counter at the drug store.

I’m so proud of these babies and I had almost nothing to do with their success. Such is gardening.
