Stargazer Lilies

These are my beautiful, fragrant Stargazer Lilies that I go to the trouble of hand picking Red Lily Beetles off of each spring. Those pests can defoliate and kill a whole garden full of Asiatic Lilies (as opposed to Daylilies).

And here is a little collection of Calendula which have taken over my garden. They produce beautiful little flowers, but they're a bit spindly and the seedheads look sloppy.

More Flowers

I photographed these ones in the morning, and the others in the afternoon. The morning light looks a lot better.

Feverfew is a small flower that grows in clusters and is being experimented with in the treatment of migranes. I just grow them because I think they're cute. I also have Calendula which reseeds itself and has taken over my front garden a bit too much. But they're pretty when in bloom.

I LOVE my Daylilies. I have several different colour combinations. (photographed in the afternoon)
