Several years ago a friend came for dinner and, knowing I'm a gardener, he brought a blooming lily plant, instead of the usual bottle of wine. I planted it in the border and each spring it is the first of the lilies to bloom in my garden, a sweet reminder of the friend's kindness and thoughtful gift. This morning it opened for 2011.

What a lovely present, and how thoughtful. A bottle of wine would be (however pleasantly) gone. A lily is a present that lasts, especially in your hands!

And they do look as thought they both have the same blazing color.

I bought this beauty at Home Depot last year to have a mid-size lily at the front of the bed. I'd forgotten what a lovely bloom it has (and, of course, I tossed the tag, so I don't know the name!).

very pretty nanny! A friend of mine from work gave me a box of lillie bulbs a couple years ago. The box was so heavy I could hardly care it. Was so much funny seeing what blossoed from it the next year, this is one... the color is so pretty. Just wish they would last all summer!

To me, the beauty of flowers is their 'temporary' nature - you catch a glimpse of exquisite perfection and it lasts but a moment. Carpe diem!

LOL...I think you are right...and I think you sent it to me!! You sent me some and there was one you weren't sure of who it it was!! It is about 2ft maybe...not tall by any means. Stands just above the Barbara Mitchell daylily leaves that is in front of it.

LG, that sure looks like Special Ovations. I dont't remember dividing it last year, but I sure might have.

Nanny, I don't think I sent any Matrix, but your could be this orange one that has bloomed around here for a few years. I think it might be Orange Pixie. The one behind it is Mount Negro.

Us ladies must have had a disturbing episode like this when bending over lilies to do the weeding.
Its called B F (boob flop) I wish I had reall money for the buds that have been broken off because of this.
I realize a sportsbra would help, I just cant find them( havnt looked really) for my frame.

JoAnn, I followed your URL and your pictures and yard is beautiful. I would love to post pictures here but it takes so long. I have a facebook account that I rarely use. I guess I could post there. I like to see how others combine flowers like your diathus, astilbe, etc. Am working on that now. Plus the question of 'to use bark or not to'. I had some down when the yard was first redone but after a year it looked awful. Big chunks of it. I guess I could get the smaller ground stuff. It would mix into the soil easier.

Picasa is free from google.Try it.
Like Allison said its so much easier to make an album that post 12 images plus the lables if you choose to use them.

Mulch is the question of the ages.
Its all up to your taste.
There are drawbacks to all types. I like the natueral wood mulch but we use free mulch from our town.Its the xmastrees we leave by the curb plus other heavier shrubs and trees thr town grinds up.
It had big pieces that stay on the surface for years. Some people rake those off before they re apply the next mulch.It doesnt last forever. We apply it aevery 3 years.

I just rearead this after lincolnitess's comment thinking I had missed something. Did I ever! ROTFL. I don't have those problems, though the 'frame' increases each year and my stiffness in neck, back, knees have caused a zig when a zag would have been healthier for my plants; I guess you could call it BF (big foot).

If I ever get my garden stable (is there such a condition) then I would apply mulch, but I have so many small plants and I plant annuals in the back beds also. They go in sooooo tiny and in weeks are great big, but that first few weeks they need plenty of room so as not to get trampled by BF, or pulled as a weed. I fear the mulch would bury them. I know our xmas trees are collected also. Wonder who grinds them. We had a mulching place but they were shut down by the city; finances I think. They did a wonderful service turning junky stuff into good soil and mulch. The city should have paid THEM for their services instead of taxing them out of existance. Our government at work.

Yeah, but there is a lot to be said for FREE. But I see what you mean. You would think if they are going to go to the bother they would do a better job. HA just doesn't seem worth the effort.

Not purple for sure, but it's beautiful, and a good color echo with the echinacea.

I had read in posts of gardeners who grew echies,that some varieties reverted. I have Green Envy and one from the Sky series that are going purple-ping.
Anyone have this happen?

They are all very similar - and yes, the fragrance in the garden is overpowering. Here is a newer introduction - "Salmon Star".

Jack, your yard is beyond gorgeous! Oh, I want mine to look like this. Those sunflowers are amazing. And you dont' have to dig them up, do you? I have to plant new each year so would never get to that height. And they are so sturdy. I have to stake mine or tie them to a fence. Didn't plant any this year. What about weeds, or is the flower growth so lush and full that they don't stand a chance.

Thanks. The weeds I have to deal with are usually self-seeded from various wildflowers and self-seeding annuals (examples include New England Aster, Goldenrod, tall American Bellflower, Downy Skullcap, fall Clematis, coneflowers, sunflowers nicotiana, blackberry lily, morning glories, tomatoes, and Rudbeckia. The worst weed is henbit.)

I would welcome any of those 'weds." It is possible that I have some volunteers from the New England Asters I dug up last year. I planted two kinds, but the New England, while they produce huge plants, had teeny tiny flowers that barely opened (if at all) before freezeup. Not enough return on the ground they used so I pulled them all up. I have Purple Dome and Crimson Brocade (novi-belgii) now and they bloom much earlier and last a long time. Also lots of campanula; understand that it can be considered invasive down there. Not too much luck with the bellflowers. Had a couple but they only lasted two years.

Once the sunflowers start to top out I usually stake as many as possible. Summer storms have potential to lay them flat.
