Lovely liliums

I have grown liliums for the first time this year. I always thought that flowers this beautiful must be terribly difficult to grow. Well, I'm here to tell you they are a cinch! Stick the bulbs in a pot, water them & look at the reward! This is a very old photograph (probably almost as old as me!) of a lilium my Dad grew. I remember him pointing this photo out to me in our family album many times as I was growing up; "Look, I grew that"! We lost my Dad to bowel cancer in February this year, and I find myself planting things in my garden that remind me of him. And so here are my first liliums. "Look Dad, I grew that"!

  3. They are gorgeous flowers, maybe I could try and grow some in a pot, I really thought they would be very hard to grown.
