Someone asked to see a photo of my lily bed after I had posted a shot of my Orange Tiger Lilies. Well this is one of my Lily beds. This is the one I tend to the most. It has Tiger and Asiatic Lilies in it. There are maybe 15 or 20 Lily plants here. It has Marigolds as a border. It has a Hydragena Bush also as well as Ladies Mantle and a huge Hosta. The Lilies are orange, Pink, White and pink, and yellow. There may be other colors but at this time I can not recall if there is. Do you have a large are out front that is specifically for a certain type of flower? If so what flower and how many? HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

As usual, getting my graden and flower fix by looking at your photos. . What nice color you're getting - the bed is obviously well tended - nicely spaced and mulched and weed free - you're working!! I had a hydrangea - what color does yours get? Mine was pinkish-white and had a blue one around the corner from it.

Thank you very much. I try my best to keep it looking as well as possible. the colors and shape change daily with each new flower opening as well. next year I think this bed will be all Lilies surrounded by some annuals that will change each year as well. Mine I think is a blueish pink. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Awww AGB How beautiful! I sure wish I could look out on a view like that everyday! Maybe some of your skills will begin to rub off on me and one of these days I will be on my way to being as talented as you! I sure would prefer that to the brown thumb I have at the moment! Hugs xxxxx

Thanks bunches. Maybe it will some day rub off to others here. I do not think of it as talent. It's just something I do and seems I do it fairly well is all. A hobby, pasttime etc. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM AGB !!~

good day grandpa bob... you're just great with flowers and no doubt you have a green thumb. Do you learned to cultivate your flowers by yourself? or learned form someone or from the books. It intrigues me. thanks.

Thank you very much. This area will change more than likely this fall as I want to transplant more in this area and move some others from here. Thanks again. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~
