No Shirl....the one thing they don't have...:((. I just love the shapes and growth habit...they remind me of Chinese lanterns!

What a lovely planting, and as usual, a beautifully focused photo. You must have a good steady hand Janey!

Sorry for late reply girls....but thank you for such great comments...:)).
To Wells and Karen, those are from just two Lily bulbs planted in a 12" terracotta pot, which I placed in the border. Along with all the lilies I grow, the pots are safely tucked under the staging in the greenhouse for winter.....good job I managed to get the panes back in Karen! Wells if you do the same, they should come back year after year with no problem.

Yes, indeed! I have no greenhouse yet, but it does need to be a priority now. I'm going to have to start propagating!

These are my favourites Avis, I'm hoping to try Turkscap Lilies this year too......got a thing about Lilies!!

They are stunning. The turkscap ones are very expensive, but worth it I think.

I think so too Karen....would like the deep pink ones if I can find them....:))

yes, that's the one I had in my last place. It was very reliable and grew bigger and better every year that we were there. I'm sure you'll find them easy enough. :)

Hope so.....you didn't want to bring them with you? I'm going to have a look at your pics now.....:))
