As I have mentioned before (MANY TIMES I am sure---ha), we have a huge chipmunk/squirrel problem here. AND those cute little critters LOVE to dig up lily and tulip bulbs and try to eat them (thinking they are 'special' nuts for them)... Sometimes they just move them to another place --and when we get a flower growing in an odd place, we know who did it!!!!! Sounds like fun to them I'm sure, but it drives us bonkers --as we have to work so hard in our yard --while sharing it with the wildlife around... Fun fun!!!! WELL---to make a long story short, we have lost many of our Lilies (and Tulips) through the years due to this problem!!!! Oh Well--tis LIFE!!!
I'll show you a variety today (some as singles, some in groups, and/or both). Hope you enjoy our Lilies... Besides the Roses, I think Lilies are my second favorite of all of our flowers (especially the ones with fragrance).. BUT--as you know, I love them all--and love to have something blooming most all seasons!!!! Be sure to click on the photos for enlargements....
