LILIES in our YARD in 2013

GARDEN PLEASURE LILY
Except for the deer eating some of them this year,  our LILIES have done really well in our yard... We've had so much rain that things are flourishing, although lately,  we've had TOO much rain... Oh Well!!!!!  Better too wet than too dry I guess.

Hope you like seeing our 14 different lily varieties this year... It's hard to pick a favorite --but the one above  (named Garden Pleasure) is a favorite of mine... Too bad that this is one that the deer also loved and ATE --so we haven't had many of these blooms this year...

Below are more.  Click on them for enlargements...




JUANITA LILY



SARINA LILY




MONTENEGRO LILY



Combination of REGALE and MADONNA  LILIES  (Regale has pink outsides,  and Madonna is white on the outside;  But other than that,  they are similar.)



REGALE LILY



LOLLYPOP LILY



TINOS LILY



PINK PERFECTION LILY



FREEDOM'S GLOW LILY



PINK LEMONADE LILY



TREFFER LILY



GOLDEN SPLENDOR LILY



TOUCHING LILY
Hope  you enjoyed seeing our Lilies...   Four of these (Juanita,  Sarina,  Tinos, and Pink Lemonade) are in the round lamppost flowerbed ---and the deer got to them this year,  eating many of their buds... Hopefully,  we will have a larger group blooming in that bed next year.

The one which bloomed the most this year was Pink Perfection... These were amazing.  AND  Touching will have alot more blooms on it, as you can see from the picture above.  Touching is a beautiful lily since it is a pale yellow with a red inside and pink outside....

Golden Splendor,  Regale,  Madonna,  Treffer and Freedom's Glow are all in the side flowerbed near the deck... I enjoy this group since I can see them from both the kitchen and the Great Room.

Pink Perfection,  Garden Pleasure (which the deer ate),  Touching,  Montenegro and Lollypop are in the road flowerbed out front...

We may have a few more lilies to bloom --to add to this year's collection,  but this is most of them.  IF we do get more,  I'll share them on an upcoming blog post.

Do you have a favorite?????  Gosh---if I HAD to choose from this year's group,  I'd probably choose Pink Perfection --since we had SO many of them... BUT--I also love Touching and Garden Pleasure..... Ah Shucks---I love them all.

Hope you enjoyed seeing them today!  Wish you could smell them.  Lilies just smell awesome!!!!!

Hope you had a good 4th of July.  We had a VERY VERY wet one here --with  more rain than I've seen for a continuous amount of time in a long, long time!!!!!   Many of my friends asked if we were going to build an ark!!!!! ha

ADDENDUM:  Besides these 14 lilies,  we also had 3 more to bloom:  Gold Band,  Simplon, and a tiger lily (either Black Beauty or Midnight Queen).  SO --that made 17 total for 2013.

Hugs,
