So, last year I moved this lovely Stargazer Lily to a flower bed along side the path that leads to the shed, then went out and bought more lily bulbs and added them. I then decided to move the little peach tree...
this one, that had outgrown it's pot, and plant it in the same flower bed. The little peach tree, happy to be free from the pot, grew like crazy, shading out the lily bulbs. So there were absolutely no pretty Stargazer Lily blooms last year. None!!
Early this spring, I hurriedly dug out the lily bulbs from under the spreading branches of the pretty peach tree and put the poor stressed bulbs, plus another handful in a new bed in the front yard around the bird bath, all the while picturing the beauty to be...
and here's what we've got. Have you ever seen such a tall spindly flower. I thought it never would stop growing, and bloom.
Looks like there will be only one lily bloom this summer, but if the good Lord lets me live another year, and if I don't go digging and moving things again, maybe there will be a bed of Stargazer Lily blooms. There are fifteen bulbs here. The little group in front, to the right of Weetie's head will be a surprise as I bought them for $1.50 at Lowes on Mother's Day, after the blooms had fallen off.
Maybe it's time for a Dumperoo picture...
These days lately have been hot and humid, too miserable to work outside after lunch time, so there is no excuse for not getting more sewing done.
Hope to be back soon.
