My Lilies In Bloom

I have waited for my Lilies to bloom. On Friday night we returned home from Estonia after being away for four days. Yay ! They are in bloom. The Asiatic Matrix, the deep dark red ones, one of the yellows and the orange lilies. The Asiatics look so nice. I’m glad the lily bugs have left them untouched. The others have a lot of damages because of the Lily bug. The bug  is quite beautiful in a rich nice red color but so hard to get rid of. I saw one today and thought I would take a picture of it but he was quick to disappear. Soon the day lilies also will bloom.

I think this is a Lilium Martagon. I saw on the net that in some pictures they called it Tiger Lily and in some Leopard Lily. I think Leopard Lily is good because of the spots so that’s what I’m going to call them. It is a beautiful flower. I really want to have of them in my garden too. The flowers in my pics I took last night when walking Canelo. Some of them were growing outside a garden in the ditch.
