Blood Red Lilies

I guess this is the last in the series of lily posts. (The first were the yellow lilies and the second were the orange lilies in case you missed it.) I didn’t get as many of the process this time for some reason. I thought I had but when the yellow and orange lilies bloomed, I guess I forgot to get more photos of these. Oops.

Babies!

Medium size bud – with a guardian. 🙂

Almost ready to bloom…

Hello, red Asian Lily! 😍

I love the rich red color. I didn’t expect these to bloom until this week, but they bloomed on the 31st of May.  These are the first lilies I bought about three years ago. 🙂

Glowing Orange Lilies

I posted last week about my yellow lilies, but these orange ones actually opened first.

I didn’t expect any of my lilies to bloom until the beginning of June. Last year, they bloomed on the same day that my dog, Rosie, passed away. (The red ones may wait until June after all, but I was so happy to see the orange ones opening now!) Here are a few shots of them, from babies to blooming:

As you can see, it looks like they may have multiplied! 😁

Looks like the newbies are too young to bloom, but maybe they will next year. 😀

Now it’s big enough to be seen. 🙂

I little bigger…

BIGGER…

Here is the orange lilies’ spider guardian. 😂

Opened! 😀

I absolutely adore these flowers. 😍

And there we go! I hope you enjoyed the journey as much as I did, haha. 😊

Shining Yellow Lilies

Dutch Goes The Photo’s photo challenge last week was “shine” – though I fear I’m a bit late in posting for the challenge. 😅 My yellow lilies seem to almost glow in the dark in these photos – as if the flowers were made of sunshine. 🙂

And here is a glimpse of the journey that they took to get there:

Plants but the buds are not visible yet.

The plants are bigger but the buds are still too small to see.

Here come the buds!

Fully grown buds – it was only a matter of days. 😀

Hello, yellow Asian Lily! 😍 One of my favorite flowers! God added such detail to the petals.<3 In addition to these, I have orange ones, which are also open now (keep your eyes peeled, that post will probably come later this week), and red ones that are a little further behind and will probably open at the beginning of June. I bought pink ones this year and they already opened and died back. (If you missed them, you can see them here.) I hope to add a new color every year! I really want purple, but I’ve never seen them locally… but I’ve never seen one I didn’t like so I’m sure I’ll find something. 😁


Also, on a different note, I want to thank you all for the support – I got this in my notifications bell a few days ago:

And a special thanks to Keri L, who told me that my posts weren’t showing up in the reader because I was using too many tags and categories. ❤ Looks like it’s working now and people are seeing my posts. 🙂
