My first martagons

Postby Eeyore » Jun 30, 2012 4:02 pm

Started from mixed seed 7 years ago. These are the first 2. There is one more that has not opened yet but should in the next few days.

Wow! You are one patient girl. That is one lesson gardening is still trying to teach me.

The green centre is spectacular!

Should I even ask how many lily varieties you are up to now?

I am thrilled to pieces Trish! My GF and I started some at the same time and she has blooms this year too. As she said "it's like having a baby".

Clara, I've watched them put on a little growth each year and it's paid off for me. Like watching children grow through their stages.

Tammy - I've lost count..... :lol:

I'ts lily season and I don't have any. Will enjoy looking at all of yours. Actually there is one Easter lily that is in bloom from last year in the garden.

Makes you feel good when you grow something from the seed, doesn't it Lyn?
