those are GREAT! My lily plants are very tall but no flowers yet. And one of the lily plants didn't come up at all this year. They grow from bulbs correct? Should I dig it up and see if they need separating?

Yes lilies grow from bulbs, but I'm not sure about splitting them. I do know that once a cluster of lilies gets too thick, they do grow and flower better if separated. It sounds like you have them planted fairly far apart; how long have those bulbs been in that spot?

I wouldn't be worried yet, though, if they haven't flowered - unless you were in Louisville with me.


Glad you enjoyed my pics, Fluff!

Wow...great pics. I am considering a few lilies next year (this year I have a few in pots)...this year its begonias and dianthus, mostly....well, and my front garden of giant, monster ferns and hostas (none of which will bloom for another couple of weeks yet).

Our hostas are just blooming this week; we've a couple ferns, but they're still young and not too terribly 'monster' yet. We do need one more; a smallish one - any recommendations?

We've a begonia/impatient bed that I haven't photo'd yet; I'll have to try to get pics of that one up. It's also where the stubborn sweet pea plant is invading; I suspect that it'll be gone today, though; my wife's off of work today. :p

I found out last night, from my local lily expert (aka my wife), that these are actually asiatic lilies. I still like 'wedding' lilies, but w/e.

Beautiful rose Severum. I have some more getting ready to open up. Can't wait. But, for now, I have MATERS!!! And here a pic of some honeysuckle growing along my back fence.
