My lilies are finally blooming! They started blooming last weekend and they are still going strong!
These lilies came with the house. There were tons of them, so many that I gave several away to neighbors and even threw some out!
I’m not sure why, but the first two or so years that we lived here the lilies were a paler or duller orange. However over the last few years the lilies seem to have become much more vibrant. They glow with their fiery orange and really stand out in the garden when they are in bloom. Same for the yellow and red ones that I grow.
I guess they are enjoying something in my soil. I just wish I knew what it was! Perhaps it’s the doses of Alfalfa tea that I make up and pour on the plants a few times each year. That really gives the roses a boost and I’ll bet it gives the lilies a boost too.
