Orange Lily May 2017

For the record, these are not Tiger Lilies.

Tiger Lilies have spots on them–which is weird now that I think about it, tigers have stripes. Tiger Lilies should be called leopard lilies because leopards are the orange cats with spots.

Oh well.  The scientists can explain that. In the meantime, these lilies are in my front yard.

This year they bloomed before I noticed so I only got pictures of the last one.

I’m going to move them this year. They’re sun lovers and the roof line shades them part of the day so they grow on the diagonal, stretching toward the full sun.

I’ll move them to the front edge of the garden and cluster them with another lily that also grows diagonally toward the sun.

Hope you like them.

      I’ve always called them tiger lilies too. But when I looked for the “official” name I was surprised at how many generic lily names I found. I mean, really? “Orange lilies?” I have some purple/pinkish ones to share too. I wonder what they’re called? LOL
