Goodness it seems like the summer's heat is already here -in the 90s and starting to get more humid -What happened to those deliciously cool evenings?  Still the garden seems to find a way to compensate and what better way than a display of gorgeous lilies from the tall, regal hybrids to the smaller but equally eye-catching Asiatics.  of course this includes my very Patricia's Pride -not that I am prejudiced of course but I am sure you will agree it is a very beautiful lily with those rich purple brush strokes -anyway judge for yourself: See above

I will add more pictures tomorrow -showing the development of the garden and some of the other lovely lilies.  Goodness the garden is 4 year's old now -tempus fugit -time flies.  just back from a trip to Pennsylvania and Longwood Gardens' Lilytopia.  Words fail amid the splendour of such a magnificent display of lilies- check out heir website at It is an amazing place and if you have never been you need to add it to your bucket list!
Happy gardening!
