Startling Stargazers

Spread out the palms of your hands.

The blooms of Stargazer lilies are about as big as that!

They are so incredibly beautiful to look at as well as to smell.

As a matter of fact, the fragrance of these lilies will fill a room.

Don't you just love even the name, Stargazers?

It is so romantic-sounding. 

There's a great video on how to grow Stargazers from ehowgarden on YouTube by a woman named Yolanda. (It sounds like her last name is Van Dean). Check it out.

I truly love these magnificent flowers.

There is a bouquet of them in the middle of the kitchen table. 

There are still many more to bloom! Yippah!

They are my favorites in the Oriental lily family.

I've never heard of the stargazers before. Your pink lilies are pretty, Susan. In the front of my house are yellow lilies. They are such sturdy flowers and they usually open up in the middle of the day and look incredible. The oriental lilies are a bit different than the lilies we have around here. :)

Have a blessed weekend, my friend.

love, ~Sheri
