The letter is T, for the various Trumpet Lilies




I do love lilies of all kinds, but these trumpet lilies are special, - so beautiful and elegant,
and quite often overwhelmingly fragrant.
 
Twenty years ago, or so, we had the gorgeously scented
Regale Trumpet Lily growing beneath
our bedroom window,
intertwined with the roses.
 
Heavenly!!!

Shady Gardener said...

Truly beautiful! I had to dig and move some of mine. I hope they aren't too "put off" to bloom! Enjoy your day!

Our lilies in the back yard haven't bloomed yet but it won't be long.

Trumpet lilies are also very colourful. I didn't know there were so many colours. Thank you for this floral post.
Have a great day, Hildred.

Waking up to that each morning would have been ideal. There are so many wonderful colors, these no exception.

These are just beautiful Hildred and it's a real gift that they have such a sweet scent. I didn't know there were so many varieties.

Those Lilies are just wonderful! I can almost smell them through the screen, very nice letter "T" !

Joy said...

They are plants of such variety, as you show, I love a heady scent.

Most of the varieties are too heavily scented for me but oh my, they are lovely.
