A few more garden glories

>> Tuesday, June 29, 2010

The lilies I planted two years ago have really taken off.  When I planted them, they were two scraggly lonely stalks.  Now look at them!


I find them positively intoxicating, with their crisp pink and white symmetry, delicate polka dots in the centers if the petals, and luscious sprays of dusty orange pollen.  I hope they continue to multiply.

The bear's breeches seems to have gotten over its shock at being transplanted.  The poor stuff just plain hates to be moved.  But it's happy enough now to have shot up some of its weird, spiky purple and white flowers:




For some reason my husband just loves my weird bear's breeches.

Finally, this year I put in some columbine.  It's struggling a bit with being transplanted, but is still happy enough to give me a few of its amazing court jester hat flowers:

Beautiful lilies! I haven't grown many since the red lily beetles arrived. I just got an acanthus this year, still a baby. Yours is way cool.
