Those are excellent Cappy, thanks for sharing those. I will take a few pics of the different types of Lillys here in New England on my place. I can appreciate the pic of you and your Fathers, I miss mine too. It will be a great day when I am with them again. Rock

I have tiger lilys in my yard that are were from plants my dad transplanted from his boyhood home, to the house I grew up in to the house I live in now. So they always bring back memories of dad and my grandfather.

We moved into this house in 1969. They were there then, we have never done anything to them but let them roam freely.

ours aint roaming yet but we hope they continue to spread.  The biggest prettiest one with 7 blooms came up kinda unexpected on the corner of the garlic patch.  I had split a pit and divided the bulbs and put them here and there forgot about the one in the garlic.  On advice we made the garlic box very rich and fertile cause garlic is slow growing well the tiger sure liked it its the biggest of all of them.

Hey Cappy, I was thinking of you today, so I took a few pics of the lillys here. This row caps a short wall next to the north side of the house. The first pic gives you a general idea of how many there are and how pretty it will be when they bloom. The second is an almost close up, I took it to show how far along they are. I am lucky to have some different colors. When they stat blooming I will try and get as many different types as I can.  Enjoy, Rock

Hey Cappy, I am finally starting to pull out of this cold/crud/flu thing, the majority of our lilies have not bloomed yet. But, the Tiger Lilies have started! They are something this year, I can't wait till the rest of the day lilies start, they are colorful. 
Enjoy


Just a side note, this small flower bed had a 7 foot tall Lilac. About 5 years ago it was struck by lightning and the Lilac seemed to be completely dead the year after that. Since then, the Lilac is coming back, slowly, it has one stem coming up, and is almost 3 feet tall. The flowers in the bed seem to be more hardy. Rock

This photo is not from my garden (I'm between blooms right now).  However, I found the exact flower we have on the internet, and I thought I'd show it to you.  I'm finding that a lot of folks in my area have this particular flower in their gardens:


I enjoyed seeing everyone photos.  We should keep this thread going!

Hey Cajun Cappy, I finaly got the pic I wanted for you. The lilies are all in bloom right now, and the vegies are growing quick. This stretches along the back of my home, one long, thick, tall row of so many different types of vegies and flowers, but the lilies are the main attraction.
I am glad you told us about your love of the lilies and how they remind you of your Dad. It makes feel happy when I see them too. I hope you enjoy this pic. Rock

Cappy, your Tiger Lilies are outstanding...and so unusual.  I've never seen one like it.

Here's mine.  Old photo but they still look the same year after year:


The flutterbys like them:


I didn't know they were called Tiger Lilies until I googled it just now.  I always called them Turks Caps.

Windmere, I have the same double/triple ones like in your photo.  I love them!
