A Treat for the Senses

Our Asiatic lilies put on a lovely show this year. They grew to over 3' tall and no less than four blooms topped each elegant stem.

The white flowers are so pure and tender. I love how those little brown dangly bits dance in the breeze.

These freckled flowers add a little spunk to the otherwise subdued planting.

The delicate blush of pink on these delightful blooms blends well with the surrounding plants.

Not only are they beautiful, but they are also big and carry a big scent. I balanced the blooms atop these shallow round vases, giving just enough room for their stems to reach a drink of water.

The sweet aroma filled the entire house, and the blooms lasted an entire week like this. I have never been a fan of perfume, but if they could make perfume that really smelled like these flowers, I would wear it all the time!
