More Lilies.

the longiflorum asiatic 'royal fantasy' lilies by the front door started blooming late last week. they're a wonderful contrast to the pixies by the front step. but i confess i'm a little disappointed that they are more buff than yellow. apparently i was sucked in by the catalog photo and didn't notice that the description does in fact read 'soft yellow to cream' [emphasis mine]. they're beautiful anyway.

the chinese trumpet 'regale' lilies are less than happy with their situation. too much shade, i fear. they're very nearly horizontal to the ground, stretching towards the light. one has a good sized bud and i think it will bloom; i'm less certain of the others. i'll definitely relocate them, i'm just not sure when the best time is to dig them up.
