While looking over the garden today it was clear to me that the most striking things blooming in the garden were the Lilies. I need more lilies.
Of course they weren't the only things blooming.
Tiger Lily 'Splendens'
They just seemed to be the only flowers to not appear to be too stressed out from the lack of rainfall.
Oriental Lily 'Legend'
Of course I have watered but it just isn't the same.
Rose lily 'Thalita', Honeysuckle 'Scentsations' and Black and blue salvia.
The Rudbeckia even seems a little shorter this year. That tells me that the water situation is not so good. The bees do appreciate all our watering efforts too.
It is amazing how Hostas keep throwing out those blooms in the dry spell. Lilies in any form just keep on blooming.
Hosta 'Curley Fries'
