Lily Love

What’s not to love about these lovely salmon pink Asiatic Lilies? They are easy to grow, thriving in a shaded position, putting on a splendid show now that the Azaleas having finished flowering. According to the books, Asiatic lilies are among the easiest to grow. They’re very hardy, need no staking, and are not particularly fussy about soil, as long as it drains well (although they do better if you add a good mulch and plant them in compost enriched soil).

Here are my newest Bloomers …

Happy Gardening

By Christine

Dominated by large trees on a medium sized property, my garden is very shaded. With no “full sun” areas I have to plant shade and partial shade loving plants. I love shrubs and flowers including camellias and azaleas but Roses and Irises are my favourite and getting these to thrive is a challenge …

Exactly, as you say what’s not to like and you have pictured them perfectly. I am keen to search your site for a picture of your garden and add it to my (Your gardens) link in my site and also linking it to your website. Let me know sometime if you don’t want me to do this this.

Hi Alistair – Of course you can. Do you need me to send you a photo or anything? We have linked to your blog too, on our “We recommend” page. Yours is one of our favourites 🙂

Hi Christine, i particularly love the way you arranged it in the post, like a big collage! The flowers and photos are so beautiful, i love them but will not thrive in our hot clime. You should participate in Donna’s meme, i think the next word will be much harder than Illumination. Thanks for your comment in mine.

Hi Andrea – I finally did take part in Donna’s meme – Illumination – took me a while, I found it quite a hard one. I think “Repose” might be a bit easier 🙂

I love lilies too and always love when lily season starts. I am happy that is goes on all year round somewhere in the world. I find mine are not happy in any shade and always stretch for the sun.

Oh WOW!! They are totally love-able! So beautiful and it helps when there is no fussing involved. Also LOVE your photographs – you really have a great eye for this!! Awesome xxx love the close ups!
