The Asiatic Neromes were absolutely stunning, especially for a first-year lillium. And, they get the Euphorbias into the competition again... :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

What a gorgeous photo Luzy! Love the plants and the colour of your lillies.

You need to put little faces on the euphorbias!

I love the colours in your photo, Luzy. The pastel greens with the dramatic red in the centre, lovely. Those euphorbias seem to be an interesting plant, unusual shape. I like unusual plants :D
Don't be afraid to colour outside the lines.

Now that's a top shot Luzy, worth winning a prize!!! Awesome color combination, and you've created that "colourful life" yourself in your own garden!

Sadly, those euphorbias got cut back today :cry: But it's lovely to see all the new shoots happening now. They really deserve faces, Spider Lily - they'd just gone through the seeding stage and, when the sun finally got around to them, you could hear them 'popping' from a distance - even got hit by a few about 10 feet away!

Yani, these I think are wulfunii, very similar to the martinii but without those lovely red flecks in the flower. Yours will do great, I bet!

And thanks for the colour comments - I really love it too. Maybe a bit 'contrasty' :roll: but it's all a part of nature! :D

Love your reply, cordelia! :lol: 8)

It'll probably do just fine, Thee. I gave my patch a watering today, it'll get another tomorrow after some council mulch and then have to wait until this time next year for the hose again!
