lucious lilies

I bought this one at the much maligned Home Depot recently. It just begged to come home with me. My plant-a-holic friend sort of rolled her eyes but didn't try to talk me out of it. (she was thinking; "You dummie. You bought that same one last year.) It has bloomed and bloomed and bloomed over the past several weeks and it isn't done yet!
THIS one, I bought LAST year but of course, had forgotten what color it was. My friend said "I'm pretty sure its just like the one you bought a few weeks ago." (yes, she was rolling her eyes again!) :>) She really is pretty patient with me. But golly, how could you not want more of them? They are splendiferous!

Today I had to stop at HD to get more string for the weed-whacker. This yellow lily leapt off the shelf, wrapped its fat buds around my neck and begged to come home with me. What else could I do but comply? There was also a pale, pale peachy one whispering to me but I managed to escape without it.

I think they are beautiful, too! And it is very nice of you to give them a loving home. They are far and away nicer to look at than the "dog vomit"...

I have that same orange lily! I got mine at Walmart last year. Pixie something-or-other. I love them! Mine aren't blooming yet, though.

"Crimson Pixie" is the name of the orange one but the yellow one just came with the generic "assorted lilies" tag.
And hey, I think the fresh "dog vomit" is a nice shade of yellow too! ;>)
Lilies are just so fun aren't they!?
