Last fall when my childhood best friend visited us she brought us tiger lily plants. On Tuesday morning when I looked out the window the first one was in bloom. Today there are three in bloom and there will be many more.
I thought the Strawberry Candy lily wouldn’t bloom at all this summer. Usually first flowers flower in the last days of July. I was happy to, at about the end of July, finally see three stems grow taller day by day. On Friday 11th August the first flower was in bloom. Each stem has about 12-10 buds. I will be able to enjoy new flower(s) still for about one week. Nice.
I had forgotten the name of this flower so I looked it up on Google where it says it’s also called Turk’s cap. I learned the flower may be from pink, purple and white to brown and even black. I have seen them only in pink and white. I don’t have of these in my garden. These grow in the garden of a friend of mine. Google also mention it’s highly toxic to cats.
I saw these from the car growing on the roadside. As so very often when I see something when we are driving I shouted to my husband to stop, stop, stop. It was a windy day. The flowers were swaying a lot. I would have loved to take some close ups but it was impossible. Instead I took a short video clip.

I bought this cute little Kalanchoe blossfeldiana(Flaming Katy, tulilatva) in this cute little pot with cat, pumpkins and bats on it. There are no outdoor flowers in bloom this time of the year nor beautiful sunsets to photograph. So, why not a picture of the Halloween pot. Of course, my little helper Jacky hurries to offer help. To his disappointment I moved him away when he started to bite the leaves. I read on internet that these plants are toxic to cats and dogs
WOW ! I was thrilled in the morning to see five flowers in bloom. This is the first time there are more than two flowers in bloom on the same day. Of course it was a must take photos. So, if the number of flowers is five or less per day for the next days there will be no more pictures this summer 😉
