Stunning Stargazer "Stars"

One morning this week when I awoke, I looked out our  bedroom window which faces the backyard.

There's small round flower garden, planted around a young apple tree.

 Much to my delight, I saw two great big stargazer lilies. They were cream colored with pink edges.

This was a most thrilling discovery. 

Hubs planted bulbs I found at Big Lots.

Now stargazers are my Number One favorite lily.

Their fragrance is most enchanting.

As soon as I could, I ran downstairs, grabbed the scissors, ran outside and snipped two full fledged lilies and one budding one.

I placed the precious flowers in a blue bottle that once held wine.

Do you know that when I woke up yesterday morning, I could smell the fragrant aroma of the lilies all the way up on the second floor of this house?  

What a way to start the day with a smile. 

 One, two, three, inhale!  Ahhhhhh.....

Today we are joining Home and Garden Thursday on Kathy's  blog, A Delightsome Life. 

Why not take a minute to stop by to visit all the great entries!

I like Stargazer lilies too, and have not met an Oriental or Asian lily I did not like. I grow quite a few, and my blog photo is me and a Tom Pouce lily.

I love lilies but I am not too familiar with them - but I do know they smell wonderful and I really think the peachy colored one is beautiful in the blue vase. Sandie

Lovely. And I like them in that blue bottle! The heat here has made our flowers a little weak looking, but cooler is coming and they might bounce back.

My Boston friend loves Star Gazers and has a yard full of them, too. Yours are gorgeous.

Oh, I love Stargazer Lilies! I have wanted to find some to plant here, but just haven't done that shopping.
