The Last Blooming Lilies And Others

 The flower show is almost over, with a few blooms here and there. Since the weather has cool off a little bit, I started working in the garden. I started off with digging and dividng my irises. I am waiting for another month or so before I begin moving some of my lilies to a sunnier spot in the garden. Here are a few blooms from the garden.
The first two photos are of Scarlet Delight. An orienpet lily with short stature, about 3-4 feet tall.
Lilium Sweet Surrender, a new lily in my garden. It is kinda short as is the case of lilies planted in the spring. Next year, it will grow its normal height.
These are the only orientals that their buds had fully open. With the drought we have had here, my other orientals' buds dried off or failed to open. Their lower leaves fell off.
Lilium speciosum rubrum 'Uchida'
Another lily that grew short is Conca d' Or. I love the fragrance of this lily that I added a few more in my garden.
Weird Lilium henryi
Recent shot of my Gloriosa lilies.
Dahlia 'Roxy' with Eucomis bicolor.
Gladiolus 'Passos'
This Crinum just bloomed for me. Purchased as C. Stars and Stripes. On my research, it look like Crinum jagus var. rattrayi. It has plump buds, pure white flowers and gardenia-like fragrance.
Its leaves are dark green, erect and thick. The light green leaves in front are of Amarcrinum's. Happy weekend everyone.
