Lilium "Stargazer"

My Stargazer lilies bloomed this week! This is one of my all-time favorite flowers. I love the heady fragrance and vibrant color.

There weren't as many blooms on each stalk this year and I found one unopened bud on the ground. I wonder if they're not getting enough sun. They're in the front bed which doesn't get nearly as much sun as it used to, due to the healthy growth of the nearby crabapple tree. I think I'll plant a half dozen more this fall and move them to a sunnier location and see if that helps.

I brought two stems inside so we can enjoy them where it's nice and cool. These were Rachel's favorite flowers and every time I see them, I smile.
