It's Bloomin' Tuesday!

Welcome! My lilies have done better than ever this year. I'm not sure if it's the weather or they just spread more. They have been blooming for a few weeks and some are still going strong
I have a couple Asiatic but most of the lily border is day lilies.
I only got a couple blooms on the red hot pokers. I like them but the don't last at all.
The Stella D'Ore are always the first to bloom and are usually the last.
Next come the yellows. They are so bright and cheery.
I have 2 different yellows.
and 2 peaches plus some of the orange wild lilies that grow all over here.
I love every ones large lily assortment but I really don't have room for more.
I also have one burgundy day lily. It is usually shorter than the others and blooms last. I love the bright yellow center.
If you would like to show us what's blooming where you are planted, whether you are growing it or someone else is, just add your name and permalink to Mr Linky. Please, remember to add a link to this post to your blog.
Happy Bloomin' Tuesday!

I'm glad you are still enjoying your lilies. My lilies had an extremely short cycle this year. They bloomed and were gone in the space of a couple of weeks -- really strange. You have such a variety of color and shapes in your lilies -- so beautiful!

Hi Jean your flowers are absolutely gorgeous!

Sorry my first link went to the wrong post. I don't know if you can remove it.

Have a wonderful day!

It's nice that you have flowers even in mid-summer. Especially such a large variety. It's hard to decide which color is the best.

What lovely lilies! Mine have already bloomed, but I'm hoping for a repeat when we get cooler weather. Thank you for hosting us today:)

Jean,
YOur lilies are so pretty. You have quite a variety. I think lilies are my favorite summer flowers.

The lilies are so pretty! I am partial to the pink ones, myself. I'd love to have more of them myself - and we just might have to FIND more room for them. There's still plenty of grass to dig up!

You have such a variety of flowers and oh so many colors in your garden. I like the burgundy-yellow contrast in your last lily photograph. By the way I just posted my Bloomin' Tuesday blog today (on Thursday!). I hope my flowers get some views!
