We're always excited when the first one pops open and we usually bring it inside to enjoy both his beauty and it's fragrance. Our first one for 2010 was this week. We're elated over this first bloom . . . . and there are many more in the garden still in bud.
We find that we're always able to "tuck" a few more here and there in the garden -- besides enjoying them outside we also enjoy them inside in bouquets for the table.
They're a magical lily and much appreciated in Linderhof's garden.
And in winter, if we can find them, we'll splurge with a boughten bouquet now and again -- they make summer seem that much closer when it's dreary outside.
It's Pink Saturday so please join Beverly at How Sweet the Sound to see what other pinks there are this Saturday!
