Rubrum Lilies

 Lilies  are  the star of my garden this week.. and even tho it has been a hot and very dry summer the rubrum lilies are spectacular this summer...


 They are tall , a good  4 and 1/2 feet.



The   sweet fragrance  greets you when  walking  by to the patio... I positioned them by the arbour  and bench   so one can pause and   enjoy the scent..

 loads of buds



Hoping for rain this week,  so dry here.........
 Joining in  Bloomin Tuesday.....

They're beautiful, Rosemary. I can almost smell them, my yard is all dried up except for weeds which thrive in any weather. xo

Brilliant! I'll bet they smell as good as they look! I'm sending you some rain today!

Your lilies are lovely. Over 4 feet - WOW, that is amazing. They look very nice next to your bench.

Rosemary, Your liies are fantastic! I too love the smell of the oriental lilies - it's the best kind of "perfume" that I know of.

Hi Rosemary! What a beautiful variety of lilies you have, too! :-) Hope you're doing well. I seem to have a hard time "getting around" these days. Boo.
