I just love Lillies Chico, some of mine are out now, some already finished :sad: I just wish their bloom time was longer. Yesterday I bought a new Daylily called Strawberry Dream (or something similar) it is to die for. Will post a pic when it blooms. The rock plant thingy, my neighbour has one, weird aren't they?

Beautiful! I seem to be gravitating to more and more lillies - they are just so pretty! I'll see if I can get some pics of mine and post them.

Beautiful lilies Chico! I have some blooming now too. I too wish the flowers lasted longer. :sad:
Your rock garden plant. Will do a search to see if I can find it. I don't recognize it from that angle. I thought at first Edelweiss but then took another look. Nope. Rock plants are not necessarily small. It just means it can grow in a very confined space and dry conidtions. They mostly have a very small root system. I am still looking for the plant. No success yet.

Your lilies are gorgeous! I'm not sure how well they would do in my yard. That's something I need to try! I love how long they last when I buy a bunch to put in the house.

Hah! These are sitting on my desk here at work. Never have to water them - silk thrives on neglect!

Chico, all your lilies are just ...but I especially like the white ones! Do you know what kind of lily they are?

I have a Stella D'or Lily plant Chico. I really like their creamy yellow colour. The new Lily plant I bought on the weekend is a Creamy Pink with a darker throat, although the place I bought it are notorious for mis-labelling, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

This place where we go, normally there is nobody there and they depend on the honour system and have a locked cash box near the exit and you just place your money in the box and go on your way. Not too many of those places around.

14k - if you make it around these parts (I know you said early fall) It is 5 mins. from Newmarket.

Sorry to hi-jack Chico.

Love the Lily in the middle pic Chico. My Stells D'or seems to go through a flowering spell and then that is it, is there some secret to keep it continually blooming, please tell if there is.
