Oops, just spend the better part of one hour to show you my jewels of the garden when I hit (I assure you purely by accicent) the Backspace button. GONE ! :hit

Being the person I am I will try again:

My favorite Lily the Oriental "Nippon", like it for it's delicate appearance. The red blooms in foreground are Crocosmia's.



Same flowers close-up



Nippon and Lily "Dizzy" with maroon stripe in middle



Lilies in my garden- the tall one is a Lily Tree it measures 72 inches.



Nippon to left, Platycodon's and Daylies "Canadian Border Patrol"



Here is the Lily Tree again




Oriental "Majestic"



O. Majestic again



O. Boogie Woogie and Tiger Lily



Oriental Tom Pouce



Lily Tree close-up. The most fragrant specimen in my Garden.



Like this piccie of the "Boogie Woogie". You can't often catch the light cream/yellow coloration of the bloom.




Oriental Lily "Muscadet"



Oriental Lily



short stemed Lilies





Tom Pouce close-up



I better stop before I wear out my welcome :rolleyes:
Have a few more, but I'll leave it for another day.

Beautiful lilies Rugosa! Man, you have a lot! :)
Love crocosmia too, I've tried it here but the winters are too hard on it and it rarely survives more than a year or two.

awesome photos Rugosa!!!! I too, have a picture of my lily, the bloom looks similar to your Tree Lily, but it's not that tall, only, maybe 48"? Love the scent of mine!!

Such amazingly beautiful lilies you have Rugosa!!
I bet it just smells like heaven with them all. I especially love the variety Muscadet, I must add this one in my collection of lilies.

Thanks for the pictures! :thumbsup

Just lovely! I am so happy I added lilies to my garden. The perfume they scent the air with- is just heavenly. I think they must have enjoyed the cool, wet spring. My tree lilies were over my head! They put on quite a show. Enjoy your lovelies!
