Every year I look forward to these Asiatic lilies peeking through the arbor.
They are actually a very unimpressive bland color. I think being planted where they sort of poke in and out of the arbor helps give them more interest.
I don't remember planting these white lilies. That happens all the time...forgetting what I've planted. I like them with the white Shasta daisies, though I doubt that I planned that combination.
The pink mallow behind looks nice, too, in this picture.
But it does not look so nice with the hundreds of orange lilies I have blooming right now. Most years the orange/pink combo doesn't bother me, but today it did.
So I cut a bunch of them (mallow) down about an hour ago. I probably whacked off about a foot or two of the really tall ones. They will grow back fast and when the orange lilies finish they should be ready to bloom again.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
