The highest and best use for day lilly leaves is chewing on them, according to Ashley. #dogsofmastodon
Two years ago, Jackie moved some of our lilies to the back yard. This is especially nice on rainy days, because we can admire them through the patio door without having to go out in the rain.
We’re expecting more total lilies, now that they’ve been given more room, but I do kind of miss the density we had with so many lilies in one small spot. #lilycount 11
Last fall Jackie dug up this whole flowerbed and spread the bulbs, corms, and rhizomes out over double the space, so I’m hoping for an even more spectacular display this year than last. #lilycount 1
Ultimate lily of 2019. There are no more buds, so there’ll be no more lilies this year. #lilycount 1.
This year’s penultimate lily. (That is, there’s a bud for one more lily tomorrow, I think.) #lilycount 1.
We’re past peak lilies, but by no means at the end: #lilycount 5.
I’d though we’d hit peak lilies a couple of days ago, but nope. Yesterday: #lilycount 44!
