Asiatic Lilies (Yellow), Cactus flower blooming

Wednesday, July 2

The last of the Asiatic Lilies are now blooming. Today the yellow ones started to open. And the pink and orange lilies are pretty much all open.

And the cactus that Tim's parents gave us is also starting to bloom. It's such a strange thing to see such a scary looking plant, with thorns have such beautiful delicate flowers. It really is an amazing site.

Around the Yard:
The sedum is also starting to bloom. And the annuals are really starting to fill in.

I think one of my favorites to watch blooming is the balloon flower. I absolutely get a kick out of the "balloon" shape of the flowers before they open. They're just so cool. Tomorrow I bet you that they'll be opening.
