Lily Fest was lean on lilies this year and other blooms. With our early spring and hot, dry weather most of the lilies were getting spent already but there were a few hardy blooms to be found.
The gardens on the Bishop property looked just like most of the gardens around here and like my own flowers beds the plants were drooping and in need of a good soaking of rain.
This was my personal favorite Lily of the walk. It seems to have had a deformation on the bloom but it appeared to have its own personal butterfly which added to this blooms beauty.
So here are a few pictures of some Lily Fest 2012.
I believe the Hemerocallis or Daylilies were the only ones left remaining that still had a few blooms remaining. I noticed that all of the Orienpet lilies like my own were past blooming and had been trimmed.
There were a few pieces of art in the garden this year (not this one) that I thought were very inappropriate for younger attendants let alone the school children that go there for the labs. I am not naive enough to know that they most likely see much more and even worse these days at an younger age but I did not like them just sticking it out there and contributing to it. Okay, rant over.
Well one has to throw in a bit of whimsy that you spotted into a posting. So watch out for the bees.
So that is Lily Fest for this year. Maybe next year the weather will cooperate and not start out as early as this year. If so they maybe should move the showing up a few weeks.
We did get a few sprinkles yesterday but just enough to wet the sidewalks and that was all. So it looks like we will be dragging around the water hoses here for a while more.
Everyone have a wonderful week ahead and ….
