Lilies

The Lilies are in bloom.
Their colors are a delight, their scent, heavenly.
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
 
 
 
 

 
 

The Lily

The modest Rose puts forth a thorn,
The humble sheep a threat'ning horn:
While the Lily white shall in love delight,
Nor a thorn nor a threat stain her beauty bright.
 
William Blake
28 November 1757 – 12 August 1827 / London

I need to plant some of those. I only have the Stella D'Oro kind, but I certainly would love some of those.

So many beautiful lilies and a lovely little poem. I always have too many lily beetles to have nice lilies.

The blooms are beautiful but I thought they were toxic to cats?

Lovely. I think I have some planted at the cabin but it has been sooooooo wet we have not been there much this spring.

What a fantastic collection and all so pretty. They are very stately plants although they come with a warning: the pollen is very poisonous to cats!

Stella and Liz, thank you for alerting me to this fact of them being poisonous to cats, I need to be extra careful they don't venture in the area where the lilies are planted.

They are all so beautiful. Lilies can really wake up a garden.
