I love your photographs of lilies and hostas. I love June, don't have June Fever. Can't grow Fire and Ice. My Stained Glass took two years to get established but it was gorgeous through late fall this year. Grew Orange Marmalade for the first time this spring--so far so good. What did you think? Thank you for faving my blog. Carolyn

Those hostas from the Halcyon family are really nice. I love June also.

Fire and Ice is in its third season in my garden. I moved it once and it really like the spot where it is in right now. I know that a lot of hostaholics can't grow Fire and Ice. Maybe it has something to do with location?

I agree, once Stained Glass is established, it's gorgeous!

You'll love Orange Marmalade. It's very pretty in the springtime and it is even prettier during summertime. An easy to grow hosta here in my garden.

Thank you and you're very welcome!

Beautiful! the colors are amazing.
My favorite has to be the fire and the june fever. You did a great job taking care of them

Thanks Fer! June Fever is one of the prettiest hostas in my garden in springtime. Fire and Ice really exceeded my expectation this year. It put up an amazing performance. Now I am ready to add Loyalist in my garden.

That combination is kind of calm. I love it too. It was added on later in this post; I stumbled upon it while looking for other pics of the garden in my folders.

Happy Turkey Day to you too and see you on Blotanical!

I can only imagine the delicious fragrance coming from your gardens, when your lilies are in bloom. Gorgeous! I love the first and third shots especially. Lovely combinations of colors. Did you grow these from seeds too?

Lily said...

No Carol, I did not grow these lilies from seeds. I have acquired them as blooming size bulbs. I was surprise at the color combination on the first pic and the third one, it was a great marriage between the two lilies. Indeed, a lovely combination.

Thanks for the visit!
