Gardeners' Notes:

I ordered this lily last winter: It arrived and was planted May 1, 2007. I didn't expect much from it because of near drought conditions this entire spring. However, it sprouted and grew nicely, forming three large buds. Yesterday June 22nd the buds all began to open in early morning, and by mid-afternoon were beginning to put on a show. I noticed insects were being drawn to the flowers and were beginning to scatter the pollen. I couldn't resist getting a few pictures before more pollen was dislodged and sprinkled onto the petals. I am glad I did because today we are getting some badly needed rain and this is making matters worse! It seems like a miracle to me that a bulb planted on May 1 could bloom so beautifully in less than two months!
