Stroll through the garden: stunning lilies

A few years ago, at this time of year, I had the opportunity to sit in the backyard and talk about lilies. My friends and readers were delighted with the recommendations I made the previous year. The hydrangea, which had not bloomed well in many years, was in bloom. The magnolia flower we talked about a year ago, which was the size of a magnolia, I haven't seen any of it.

Overall, I would say we did a good job. What we noticed in our reader's backyard were the strange little dots on the lily of the valley. We also enjoyed the blooming lilies. We are truly blessed with many types of lilies here in Ohio.

I've seen Turk's caps, stargazers, daylilies, and lily of the valley blooming this season so far. Colors can range from white to dark purple with scented flowers and many unscented flowers. What I find interesting about all of this is that our tulips are associated with grass.
