My asiatic lilies are blooming. They've opened to provide these splendid pink and yellow vistas in my back yard, and as you can tell from some of the periphery content in the images, there are many more buds bursting to bloom.
This is quite a difference from last year, the flowers' first summer after a fall 2007 bulb planting, when each of these plants rose to about half the heights you see here ... and showed and bloomed a mere, solitary one (1) flower. I kid you not.
What a difference a strong year and cold season revitalization will make.
