More garden beauty.

Some lovely lillies. I have had these corms for many years but this year some thing is different.....some of them have bloomed !! Maybe they like the new position in the garden bed?
This one looks pink in the picture but in fact it is quite dark, almost burgundy. So pretty.

They look lovely, perhaps it is the slightly milder weather we have had. Isn't it funny (and annoying) how the natural colours sometimes don't come through on the photos.

I've tried and tried to grow these but always with out success. Yours look fab.

How beautiful! I carried Calla Lillies as my bridal bouquet - same shape but all white.

So beautiful, they must bring so much pleasure. Gorgeous flowers with luscious, green fleshy leaves.

Hello Olive
They are rather nice - are they a names variety? Would look nice next to my common or garden white ones
Take care
Cathy

Thanks All for your complimentary remarks.
Cathy...the corms were purchased YEARS ago, they were probably named when they arrived but sadly long forgotten.
