Tale of Two Lilies

What’s blooming in your garden this week? It’s a lily extravaganza in ours. Just opened: this stargazer lily.  Stargazers, along with their stunning beauty and impressive size, also smell heavenly.

And just feet away in the garden, the glowing orange and brown-freckled Tiger lily (Lilium tigrinum), smaller than the Stargazer but just as gorgeous, opened this morning. George grew this one from a bulb.
