Enjoying a Spectacular Bloom

Stargazer blossom - end of July

Just before leaving on vacation, I snapped this photo.  I am so glad I did, because I just love the way the sun was shining through the wild sunflowers.  It frames up the stargazer lily so perfectly.  I have 3 of these bulbs and this year the main stalk grew to be 5 1/2 feet tall.  This one was about 2 weeks slower to bloom than the others, but just as tall.  The others are planted among the peonies and bloomed just after the peonies finished.

Stargazer lilies are my absolute favorite! Aren't they stunning? And they are so fragrant too. How cool that they are so tall too!
