Heaven in the Garden

It's that wonderful time of the summer when all you really have to do is sit back and enjoy.  Well, perhaps add a bit of water now and then and a bit of deadheading, but mostly it's time to enjoy all the hard work of fall and spring. 

The lilies are in full bloom.  This one is a mystery.  I do not remember planting it, altho this is at least the third year it has bloomed - each year more spectacular than the last. 

It is more than six feet tall and has three separate stalks this year - after only one for the past two years.

The flowers are lovely, but it's the whole THING that is so striking.
The gate is 36 inches tall.

Dayliles are coming along, too.

As well as the calla lilies.

What's not to love?


  1. That is some lily! I have never seen anything like that. Is it fragrant too?

  2. Quite right, Webb. Except out here, with our very late Spring, some planting is still going on. I'm seeing lots of orange day lilies combined with (late, again) white Shasta daisies. That just sings Summer to me. Happy 4th & thanks for the great photos.

  3. Nice! That must be an Amazonian Lilly. I hope you had a great 4th.

    Arthur brought us enough rain that we don't have to water for a few days.
