The Day Lilies

All three daylilies are in bloom. All the other lilies have, because of the very warm temperatures, finished flowering already. Also the snails and beetles made them look sad as they ate both of the flowers and the leaves. I wonder if there is something I can add to the ground that would prevent the snails and beetles.

The above information is from Wikipedia. I’ll just keep it simple and  call it Orange Lily 😉

Good thing is there are no snails and beetles on this side of our house where the daylilies are. Only a cute hedgehog. Saw him yesterday at about 11 pm. We have not seen any, around here, for years.  I read they eat both snails and bugs. Hmm, hedgehogs, they might be the solution to the snail/bug problem.

I bought a new Daylily a week or two ago. Yellow was not the color I was looking for but as there were no oranges just I took one.  There’s nothing wrong with yellows ones but I desired orange ones. As the sign said varieties I hoped the plant I took by chance would be an orange one. I read the name on the sign and repeated it to myself several times hoping to remember it. I should have written it down because by the time we were back at home I forgot it. I went back the next day and took a picture of the sign 🙂

Today, in the morning when I looked out the door I was happy to see the first flower and yes, it is orange.

For years I have admired, in two different gardens, down the road this kind and this color lilies. I have, when no one has been around, took pictures of the. No need for that anymore 😉

The orange lily is a tall one. Much taller than the two other. I have to enlarge the flower bed as the lilies spread fast. They soon, next spring, need more space.

My Lilium Lollipop

Lilium Lollypop, Lily Lollipop IMG_7143CWOW! My Lily Lollipop (or is it Lollypop ? I see it written in both ways on the net. ) has two flowers on one stem. I was afraid there wouldn’t be any because of the lily beetle.

I read the plant profile for Lilium Lollypop. It says the stem is 60-70 cm, flower head size is large. Mines are very small. The stem is only about 15 cm. The flowers are smaller than the ones in my friend’s garden. I’m happy even with this baby size plant and flowers

I’m sure there will be more of them next summer. The plants will be strong standard height and the flowers  will be large.

Asiatic Lily ‘Lollipop’

Look how beautiful ! Yesterday on my evening walk with Canelo I walked by my friend’s house. Yes, it is the same woman who last summer gave me three to four plants of this beautiful lily. As she didn’t remember the name of the lily I thought it was a ‘Brazilian Hybrid Oriental Lily’. Now I’m pretty sure it’s a ‘Lollipop’.  We have become friends. Also because now she has a dog too. Anyway, she was in her garden and I asked if I could take some pictures of the lilies as mine are not yet in bloom. Oh yes, of course she said. I told her I’m not sure what’s wrong with mine. They are not as high as hers and have only a few flower buds. There were more of them but the lily bugs have destroyed them. She said they probably will grow into full height next year. I hope they will. I hope one of mine will flower also.

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.

My Catherine Woodbury Daylily

Today, it happened today ! My Catherine Woodbury Daylily, which I bought in the beginning of the summer, is in bloom. There will be sixteen flowers on two stems.  As it’s raining now I still am looking forward to shoot some new pictures of the flower when sun shines.  I’m so excited 🙂

Also the Strawberry Candy Lily, I bought last summer, is going to bloom in a week or two. I hope both will have some flowers at the same time. I’d love to shoot them in the same picture.

Last week a very kind woman gave me some lily plants from her garden. They too are really beautiful. They are ‘Brasilia Hybrid Oriental Lilies’.  The white petals are delicately outlined in a soft pink. Can’t wait to see them next summer.

I now have lilies in nine different color 🙂
