I have only two lilies that are almost of the same size as yours. I have had them for years, started with two, continued with two. They never multiplied. You are lucky to have so many, and so tall and lovely. Here is an arrangement from last year. I won't get to do a repeat this year because the buddleja bush was blown over late last fall. The bush was over 12 feet tall.
Candee - there was a couple of seedlings around the area, so I saved one and transplanted that. Not sure if it will be the same as the parent plant, but I guess it is a good way to rejuvenate an overgrown plant.
Very lovely arrangement happgarden. I do exactly the same thing too! Plus the fact that the arrangement is out in public reminds me to deal with it as soon as it gets wilty - I tend to leave my arrangements at home out forever and the water ends up being really gross. LoL.
Looks like you got peonies in your garden too. They are my favorites.
cents over there isn't it? lol What Biggie are you going to make next here on bigger is better???
I'm still thinking about it, luckily Candee is out of town for a few days! Guess where she has gone? her Granchild is about to be born, how lovely! this news is hot off the press. lol.
We have pennies or a penny, my understanding in UK it is penny for singular pence? Or has all of that changed with the Euro?
Surely someone has been doing big flowers? Only thing I have in bloom currently are daylilies (can you even use daylily in an arrangement?), a few lilies but I hate to cut them and hydrangea and that only takes one...
You don't hear people say a penny much, everything costs more!! even penny sweets have gone up lol.
We just say p usually, like 25p
.I did an arrangement with day lilies last year, think it lasted the day!
You know, it might be worth doing an arrangement like that and take to work, cause I won't get to see the daylilies anyway when I am working because the flowers will be fading by the time I get home...A thought.
We don't have any penny candy anymore either, I think penny candy is probably 10 pennys...
I remember that one Terri. It was really clever the way you dressed up the pitcher.
I just posted this in the yard to vase thread, but I figure it is big enough to fit here in this theme too LoL.
Especially since Candee is gone for a few days so I wanted to help her keep up this thread while she is gone.
I am very happy you all are holding down the fort. Steve got his pain management treatment today and we are leaving in the morning. This one is a grandson!
Keep all the fires burning for me while away and enjoy your week everyone!
How long will you be gone for? missing you already!!! Glad Steve got his treatment, say Hi!!! what number would he like for his sunflower?? did you even ask him last time???? LOL. Have a wonderful time.
Thanks Candee and Sally. It's a strange plant, I really wanted to grow it because it's very expensive at the florists and I've hardly used it for arrangements. Now that I have it growing, I don't know what to make with it... LoL!
