My Lilies Are In Bloom!

     I planted lily bulbs back in late March not knowing if they would sprout into full plants.  I'm not one to start plants from seeds or bulbs .  .  .  .  I don't have what you would call a "green thumb" and I usually want to actually see what I'm getting, but I couldn't resist buying the bulbs while shopping at BJ's.  Lilies are suppose to be "easy care, showy flowers that add beauty and color to any landscape".  Now how could I resist that? Anyway, the bulbs did sprout - I would check on them almost everyday.  What's that saying .  .  a watched pot doesn't boil?  First, (I'm sorry I didn't take pictures of their growth)  the plants sprouted long, slender leaves along the length of the stem, and next large pods formed from which flamboyant flowers appeared:

                                 These plants were so successful!!!

Aren't these lovely?  The lily is certainly a "best pick" for someone just starting out in their garden and a proven winner for those who have been gardening for some time.    ENJOY!
