First Asiatic Lily Flower!

April 14, 2012 Gardening 0 Comments

It got cold enough a few nights ago for a Frost Warning to be issued so I brought a lot of my plants into the kitchen for the night. The next day, as if on cue – like it had been waiting for the cold weather to pass, my very first Asiatic Lilly flower opened. I’m excited about this because my Calla Lillies didn’t flower last year (I’ve read that it can take a couple of years for calla bulbs to produce flowers, so it might not have been my fault), but it’s nice to see evidence that I’m not a useless gardener!
