Alphabet Soup ....L....

Postby Lizcordysmum » Mar 10, 2012 1:14 am

Posting at 9:24 p.m. on the 9th, so you early eastern birds will have something to do whilst I catch up on my sleep in the early morning.

I'm looking forward to seeing lots of gorgeous flowers...so place your alphaBETS, Ladies and Gentlemen!

Here's my Lily, a Martagon, "Henry L."

The above Lilies thrive with early morning sun and dappled shade all afternoon.

I always enjoy your bird among the flower pictures, Laura.

What kind of plant is Lemon Fluff, Clara?

Well, for L it's lilies, of course! But I have nothing like Dan's massive collection! Here's a couple of mine.

Lemon Fluff is a "Centaurea" Perennial with interesting buds like a cone before the flowers open.

Good just turned afternoon, all...I am awake and aware, mostly. I have asked the mods to see if they can move this post to where it should be.

Laura, those lilacs...I cannot wait for lilacs...is there anything else like closing your eyes and burying your face in those beauties of yours?

Neng...I think you have me convinced...I need a Landini lily...it is SO striking!

Dan...you live in Lily Heaven...pls sir can I come and live there?

Big Smile...your Lacy Doily lily...how I love the doubles...just beautiful.

Cdn Chelsea...a WALL of Lilacs? I can't imagine anything better...and move over, Chelsea,Tink and Oliver, make room for me.

Northpine, how very delicate and elegant are your China Lilies.

A wonderful start to the L's...you folks have set the tone!
