My Lilies are starting to bloom now

Hi

Now that we've had a day of sun my lilies are starting to open more...thank goodness I thought the storms we had would ruin them.

I tried some tags in the last pic but it didn't work, or what I thought would happen didn't. I was trying to get the description under or over the pic.

This big hosta is called Sum and Substance. It the full sun it turns yellow and it gets huge!

I love the Lollipop lilies as my son bought them for me for Mother's Day one year when he was about 13.

Your lilies are beautiful! The only kind I have are day lilies--most of the wild type, but a few of the double. I almost bought some of the asiatics this spring, but a friend told me that the deer like them...and we have so many deer.

I know of hosta people that hang a bar of Irish Spring over the hostas, well on a plant stake to keep the deer away. It's suppose to work. We don't have deer here though, just moose and luckily they don't come into town much,,thank goodness.

I have a friend who cuts up Irish Spring bars and drills a hole through each piece to pass a string through. Then she hangs the pieces up on mini-shepherd hooks in her gardens, protected by inverted margarine cups to keep the rain from dissolving them too fast. They look pretty funky, but once the garden grows up enough you can't really see them, and the deer really do seem to dislike the smell of Irish Spring as much as hazel does

Another thing she's had good luck with is Milorganite. You have to put more down, though, every time it rains.

Your lollipops are georgous!

Mine already bloomed about 3 weeks ago and have already snipped off the ends. Just waiting for my stargazers to pop!

If your hands ever get dirty while your out in the yard you know you'll have lots of soap around to clean up. *L*

I tried stargazers up here but it is just too cold. I even grew them up against the foundation of the house and they still didn't winter over.
