This is always the last of my Lilies to bloom. They have a lot of buds left to enjoy when they open so I am happy about that. These are the only Lily plant I have that are the turned down type of flower. Instead of pointing upwards the point downwards. This is about 3 feet tall also. It sits on the side of my house. I hope the seeds I collected from it will grow next year as these are absolutely georgeous in my eyes. Thanks for latting me share my flowers all year with everyone here. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

I thought lilies where from bulbs and not seeds. I guess I was wrong. Oh well live and learn. My flowers in the cart are doing great. I will be sending an updated picture later. I will rate the photo when I see it. LOL

Lilies are bulbs when you buy them. But the female plants do get seeds on their leaves every other year I think. And I mean a lot. From this one Lily I've gotten maybe 150 seeds. HAPPY POSTIMNGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I think these are my favorites in the lilies, and that is mainly because they bring back childhood memories. I was not allowed or encouraged to spend much time with my dad's parents, but I remember for my fifth birthday I went over there, and grandma let me play in the sprinkler in my dress. She had lilies that looked like this and I also played with the roly polies. All those great memories rolled into one, and they bloom right out with the lilies.

Once again, truly stunning. My grandmother grew lilies when I was small. She always loved these the best. i believe they are called Tiger Lilies. Now don't quote me on that one, I am trying to remember. My grandma passed when i was 10, so we're talking YEARS ago. I wish I had a green thumb. I killed a house plant and a soy bean plant my son brought home in the past 2 months. I guess I'll just have to live vicariously through your photos...lol

Iy\t really is quite stunning. A few of those could form a lovely border. I viewed your photo, rated it & wrote a comment.
