I love the end of May when my lilies begin to bloom…

The first to bloom are my Asiatic lilies, bursts of red, yellow, orange, cream appear day after day. A few years ago I planted over 100 bulbs, each producing a stem with over a dozen blooms each! Just above knee height, they’re a carpet of heaven. They will bloom until mid-July.

My smaller day lilies bloom though the beginning of October. Growing in grassy clumps, the color continues. Last year I planted a few new roots, I can’t wait to see what colors await me.

Hubster and I discovered the taller day lilies our second summer here (there were none the first year). I dug them up and relocated them in another corner of my garden, next to my patio. People here often call them “natives” (which explain why I at first mistook them for tiger lilies) or roadside lilies.
