  2. Hehe! Funny comment from Mark! It's a beauty!! I had a couple of paler pink ones emerge from my jungle at the weekend, unfortunately they are fading pretty fast in this weather.

  3. Very nice!
    Does it smell? I always wanted to have a lily that smells beautifully - as the ones sold in flower shops. My lilies never smell. Last year the seller assured me the lily he was selling to me will have a smell - but it didn't. Well, I can't come across a scented lily.

  5. Oh! I have some that look like these. They are so magnificent! Mine don't seem to have fragrance though, but have been so worth the wait (they bloomed much later than the yellow, orange, and cream ones which are almost over now) I bought a 'job lot' of bulbs going cheap so I paid my money and took my chance and was so well rewarded! Are these called Stargazer?

    1. I'm not sure what they are Deborah but they grow very tall. Something dug up the bulbs that I planted in pots in the greenhouse. They were the shorter varieties - I say were as I now have none left!

  6. Ah but will the church bells ring when their petals ascend to heaven ;)
    Thanks Sue, I now have that song in my head and the more I try to ignore it the louder I can hear "We'll drink a drink a drink, to lily the pink the pink the pink, the saviour of our human race". Sadly I know the entire lyrics to that song so there's no getting away from it.
    A very beautiful Pink Lily you have there though Sue :)

    1. Mmm I'm afraid I was the same Linda but didn't know all the lyrucs - remembered brother Tony and the one who had sticky out ears but couldn't remember his name. Made one up from somewhere too!

  8. May I'll instigate a revival, Snowbird :) U used to teach next to someone who would strum it on hos guitar and have his class singing along loudly when I was trying to to my class a story. I was not amused with only a curtain to separate our rooms.

  9. Beautiful. I love lilies but the few I had in my garden grew weaker and weaker so they had to go. Keep your eyes peeled for those horrible lily beetlea, you don't want any damage to that beauty.

    1. I haven't spotted any more beetles since the one I posted about. It and its offspring spoiled the leaves but thankfully the flowers survived which wasn't the case last year.
