On the last day of May, I was outside late in the afternoon admiring all the yellow in the garden. When I went out the next day, June 1st, it was like the plants knew the calendar had changed. Our first Asiatic Lily had opened. It’s a yellow one! And more of the day lilies and tick seed had opened up too.
This specific lily is not planted in a bed. I planted these 10 bulbs beside the house under the bathroom window. I wanted to keep them separate because they are a special variety that is supposed to grow taller. I’m just glad they survived the wrath of the old lawn mower man. After they have bloomed this year, I will more than likely dig them up and move them into one of the beds.
