Seeing Red

Let me introduce you to my lilies. 

They are quite a showy bunch.  They love to be the center of attention.  They happen to be very cheerful and smiley and seem to love to be in their own company. 
Oh, also, they multiply like rabbits. 

When I moved into this house there was one lonely stalk standing in the middle of the place.  That fall I dug that sucker up and divided the bulb.  Fast forward a few years. 
Last fall, when the lilies died down, I dug up and divided the bulbs again (like I have every year).  I filled two paper lunch bags with extra bulbs and gave them away.  So this display that you are seeing is actually only one third of the bulbs that had produced in my flower bed! 

They are currently only occupying this one section that you see in the first pic.  But it is looking like the lilies are going to have to be thinned and spread over the entire flower bed.  I have to say, I am quite proud of these showstoppers.  They really are quite amazing and I just had to share them with you.

They're beautiful. God, I love flowers.

So, regarding your comment on my blog, you know you could always come to New York at the same time I'm there. I mean, why not - our friend Amber will be there too. Two Aussies for the price of one!
