Lilies in our Yard--Part I

Many of our Lilies have started blooming since the weather has been so hot the past couple of weeks.  Usually they don't bloom here until the end of June--but this year is different.  Some of our Day Lilies are also starting to bloom --so I'll share more in a later post.

Today I will share some of the many varieties of LILIES we have in our yard.  Above is a favorite named LOLLYPOP.  Below are more.

Here's a bunch of LOLLIPOP LILIES.

As you know,  we have lots of deer around.  Now that it's gotten so hot and dry here,  the deer come into the yards looking for their lunch.   We spray something entitled Liquid Fence in order to keep the deer away from our yard and flowers.  It works about 98% of the time ---although during times like this,  we have to spray more often.  The Liquid Fence doesn't harm the plants nor the deer --but they just don't like the taste.  SO--they stay away MOST of the time.

However,  this past week,  one lone deer enjoyed some of our flowers --including the gorgeous Montenegro Lilies (like the one pictured above).   I'm glad we at least got one picture before they were eaten!!!   Since that latest visit,  George has been spraying about every other night... So far--so good!!!

Hope you enjoyed seeing some of our Lilies.  Hope you also had a nice weekend.  We are still HOT HOT HOT.. BUT--we got a tiny bit of rain yesterday ---so thank God for what we got....We are so dry now--so that rain helped!
