Garden in bloom!



Lots of rain and then some sun seems to have done my shadowy wildflower garden some good. And a third lily popped out of the ground the other day.

No blooming lilies yet, though, but I'm excited that they are growing at all. It said on the package that they need lots of sun, so I was a little worried. I just really like lilies, and I figured it was worth a shot. Now, I can't for the life of me remember if the lilies are perennials or annuals... will they come back next year, or do I have to do it all over again?

I know I'll have wildflowers at least. And supposedly they multiply and get taller.

Lilies kan be both perennial and annual - depends which lily and what place. If you know the names you'll find out on the Internet.

I think it's a stargazer lily. Probably a perennial, from what I can see on the Internet. (I am pretty sure I only picked seeds and bulbs for perennials, because I don't want to have to plant stuff again next year!)

However, while googling the lily, I also found out it is toxic to cats. We'll just have to put up a little warning sign for the kitties wandering our backyard...
