Here's a shot of one of the many Asiatic Lilies I have in my front yard. I transplanted a lot of them early spring and was surprised they bloomed actually. Not all that were have bloomed as expected. Were you surprised by any transplants blooming when they shouldn't have? HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

I used to have some type of lily that would grow and grow tall that would come back all the time. Even when we would think they were all pulled up...surprise, they would be back. I haven't seen any though in the past year.

Lilies send of shoots from the bulbs. If these bulbs are left they form yet another lily. Thery bury themselves deep so hard to rid a yard of them actually. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

Looks like we may have gotten them all this last year. Last year there was only a couple of them left. I am sure they would be up by now if any were still there.

No but I do have a blackberry bush that's popping up from somewhere. I suppose a bird dropped a seed or something...

My red rasberry bushes have tripled in amount this year with many beries formed and just starting to turn red. I and the neighbors will be having fresh red rasberries soon as well. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

You can be very proud of your gardening skills. Even though you're most generous with your photo shots I can only imagine it would be a wonderful opportunity to see your whole yard in person. I was wondering where you were and what happened to you so I'm glad to see you're still a myLotter.

That is great to hear. I have pulled up many of my live forevers. They just do not ever die off. The name says it all. I pulled them up and they have come back in certain areas again this year.

I had some old lily bulbs that I had purchased, but did not really have a bed for. Late last fall I just put them in the tops of some barrel planters. I have had two shades of very deep orange and then some white ones. I was surprised. They are also Asiatics. When I bought this house over twenty years ago there was a clump of Easter lilies. Left to their own, they bloom in May not at Easter. Their flowers are more trumpet shaped.

What a beautiful Lily...Tulips and Lillies are my two favorite flowers. I've never seen any in this color...congrats on it surviving the transplant. [b]~~AT PEACE WITHIN~~ **STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS**[/b]

Oh this is a beautiful lily I've never seen this variety. I've transplanted a bunch of things over the years and been surprised many many times. One time years back we always picked black rasberries in the woods behind our subdivision. Well, someone took an axe to the bushes and I was really upset about it. My two oldest sons, sweethearts, went out and dug up some of the plants and brought them home for me - figured they would cheer me up and be safer (think they were worried about no more fresh jelly) Well, to my surprise among the berry plants there was a wild rose also - it went crazy.
