More Time in the Garden

The lilies have been extraordinarily beautiful this year.  Earlier that usual too!  Here are some of my favorite Asian Lilies in several hot colors.  They are blooming beautifully this week. 

I've been pulling weeds endlessly and putting down some mulch. The husband's been keeping control of the unwanted volunteer trees along the fence line. They got totally out of control in the last 3 years. He battled them with the Saws-All tool and the tree pruner. Then I saw him with the industrial size container of round up. I hope that does them in.

I am waiting patiently for the Stargazer Lilies to open.  They usually are a bit later than my Asian ones, so maybe by the end of the month.  They are quite tall this year and will probably open up at my eye level.

I'm very envious of the beautiful lilies. My flowers are OK but nothing to brag about and the backyard grass is something to complain about. Love summer.

Hello Kathy,

Just love that pink lilly.

Happy gardening.
