Easter lilies in July




My mom has been giving me an Easter lily for Easter the past several years. Three years ago, I transplanted the lily to my garden. Each year, the foliage would come up, but no blooms. I threw away all of the Easter lilies received after that because I thought they were "done." This year, that sole Easter lily bloomed and blessed me with seven flowers.

I wish I had planted the last two plants instead of throwing them away. Live and learn.

There's an elderly lady down the street that has half a yard full of easter lillies b/c she does this too. So lovely.

The previous owners of my house did the same thing...so I get a few blooms every July. Nothing smells better or fresher...

Thank you for the encouragement. I will be planting more of them as I get them. I think I will edge a walkway with them.
