Before I'm Gone by taramara Before I'm Gone by taramara
Some blooms for you !

These are the best of my Red Lillies - I have been hit badly by the Lily Beetle this year - if you have Lillies then check for the Lily Beetle as soon as your plants start to grow - sadly I have to destroy a lot of my Lily Bulbs because of this damn beetle

I'm sorry about your :bug: problem. I hope you are able to save some of the bulbs.

Many thanks for this comment - Sadly all my Lillies are now affected with the bloody Lily Beetle - lucky to have got the shots I have had this year - looks like my Lily days are over - the bulbs will be inspected and if OK kept but if there any signs of damage they will be destroyed - the tub compost will automatically be thrown away !

They just get better and better! These are lovely, I have no red ones. The petals look waxy, and I love the water droplets on them. You have had alot of rain? We had hardly any. :(

Thanks much for viewing and your compliment - my Lillies in general were not as good this year and I put it down to those Red Beetles - We have been having the odd days a rain - this shot was taken late evening while it was drizzling !

I wish my lilies were as 'not as good' as yours! They'd be out of this world if not for the beetle then! Mine are soon going to be over with, but I don't have as many varieties as you do. Think have 4, but the white one's were too poor to take photos of. Evening shots are the best I think, right? :)
Reply
:icontaramara:
taramara Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2006
Funny you should say that about the white ones ... mine were terrible even to look at !

We have decided to reduce the Lily numbers and have more Iris varieties for next year !

:icongwitha-kathes:
Gwitha-Kathes Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2006
Yes, my white ones had brown bits on the petals, like they got too dry or something, and I can't see that they could have, I watered them alright. Or I thought I did.
Look forward to your iris's, I haven't got any. :(

Alice I chose the best of what I had for DA as you can imagine ! I blame that bloody beetle totally ! you keep watch next year on ALL your Lillies as the start to grow !
