This week's "Easter" Lilies

Mostly known as Easter lilies - these are lilium candidum, otherwise correctly known as Madonna Lily. These first two pictures were taken on the 30th of May. I knew it would be a matter of days before they would be in full bloom.

These lilies are all located in my front yard where they get a southerly exposure.

This lily was the first to "pop" open.

Here is another shot of the first to bloom, with our birdbath in the background.
And these Madonna lilies are sitting along the pathway between the sidewalk and the front door. I took this photo on the 4th of June. Quite a difference from the 30th of May.

How wonderful for you to have blooming, fragrant lilies right outside your door.

I've tried growing them once - it didn't work out and I haven't tried since. But now I think I will put them on my list. Maybe I'll be lucky this time!

Speaking of gardens,

Do many people say, "Mary, Mary, how does your garden grow?" I heard it all my life and I cringe each time.

Mary, I love the smell of these lilies! I need to go out and check on my lilies right now!
