The Oriental Ladies.
Saturday, 29 Oct 11 Cloudy 30°C / 86°F
After the Asiatic Lily show began a couple of weeks ago, it’s now the turn of the grand Oriental Lilies. They have finally bloomed and are filling the shadehouse garden with a wonderful heady fragrance. I just love these grand ladies.
I couldn’t resist the urge to cut the blooms and bring them into the house. They’re taking pride of place on the kitchen bench right now, but the fragrance fills almost every room in the house.
These beautiful blooms came in a mixed pack of bulbs, so I don’t know the varietal names. I have to say, even though I don’t know who they are, they’re most welcome in my home.
