Love the petal shape on the yellow rose! Very unique. The roses look very happy with nice shiny leaves.

Lilies are awesome too. But they are still young which isn't a bad thing. In two years you'll have 12-15 blooms per stalk!

Lovely flowers! I love lillies, but only have a couple growing randomly in the garden. The roses are beautiful - are they nice and smelly?? My first rush of roses is over and the second bloom is starting now. It's strange because some of them are so fragrant you can smell them from several feet away, and others have no scent at all. But they're all beautiful. I agree, the yellow one is quite spectacular in it's petal formation.

I'm sure you're treating the lilies just fine chico. But not convinced you have any ugly corners! Everything you posted is beautiful, organized and lovingly tended.

Here's some info on lily care if you're interested

Don't let her fool you folks, Chico2 has a gorgeous backyard and it's very serene and comforting to just sit and chat in...Or drink whatever.

"plant-whisperer"don't think so
But Aslan is right,our back-yard feels like an Oasis at times,I can forget we live on a busy street.
Still wish I had acres of land...
