Asiatic Lilies (Pink) blooming

Wednesday, June 25

Today the pink Asiatic Lilies started opening. These things are massive with deep rich pink petals. They almost come up to my shoulders at 4 feet. I'm 5'2", so these things are huge to me. And they're strong too. You'd think by looking at them they'd fall over being that tall, but the stems are incredibly sturdy and hardly even move when touched.

Around the yard:
The orange Asiatic Lilies are in full bloom and mostly all of them are open now.

The plants in the driveway side bed are all starting to bloom and give color to the yard, when you pull in. The planting bed includes Asiatic Lilies, Russian Sage, Pincushion Flowers, Balloon Flowers, Dwarf Daylilies and Irises.

The one Redbud tree is doing well, after transplanting it in the spring, from another location in the front yard.
