Oriental Lily

Oriental Lily
Lilium cv.

I was just about to make a post about the summer doldrums in the garden when I came across this gaggle of beauties blooming at work. It was especially nice to see them since the bulbs had been rescued from underneath the Hydrangeas in the background of this picture. You could smell these Lilies from a long way off and the blast of color was certainly welcomed. Right now there isn’t a lot blooming no that the ‘Nikko Blue’ Hydrangea are starting to fade. The paniculata type of Hydrangeas are starting to come on and there are a few Daylilies still blooming. The heat and dryness has made many of the other flowers a little shy at this point.
