  2. Thanks Indra,
    The Yellow Lilly is of interest as it is called the "Dinner Plate" Lilly. The 'plant' grows to a height of 10 feet tall --- now towers over me by at least 3 feet over my head!!
    There are a lot more to bloom and shall post them as & when.

  3. We are seeing some amazing pictures from you Raz and Indra. Such glorious colours. Your Lillies, are they better than your "orchids!"?

      That was Mahen, after the 'orchidectomy'...!!
      Not after I was 'made' a Muslim!!!

    2. You have both asiatic & day lilies. I have only DAYLILIES but about 50-60 of them which I missed as I was in CMB.

    3. Thanks Indra,
      Shame you missed out on your Lillies!!
      Blink and they are gone!!
      I have about the same amount of lillies -- give or take.
      As our weather is slightly behind yours as a result the flowering is just behind you. At the moment we are having gale force winds and causing damage to the flowers--- so much for my toil!!.

    2. Hope you don't mind my reply this late, Mahendra. I suppose my French isn't that good anyway. I meant to say 'you have a good collection. You ought to be really proud of yourself.' I better 'watch my language' hear after! Zita

    1. Thanks Rohini Ana,
      I do not speak nor write nor understand this foreigner's lingo. It means nothing to me-- might as well be Tongan, Swahili, Maori or Fijian!!!
      Could we please get back to our normal service or else this Blog might degenerate into mayhem!!

  9. Hope is like a harebell trembling from its birth,
    Love is like a rose the joy of all the earth;
    Faith is like a lily lifted high and white,
    Love is like a lovely rose the world's delight;
    Harebells and sweet lilies show a thornless growth,
    But the rose with all its thorns excels them both.
    Christina Georgina Rossetti

    1. Google translate again. Last one I promise!
      බලාපොරොත්තුව, එහි උපතේ සිට භයවීම harebell වගේ
      ආදරය රෝස වැනි, පොළොවේ ප්රීතිය ය;
      විශ්වාසය, ඉහළ හා සුදු ඉවත් මානෙල් වගේ
      ආදරය ලොව ප්රීති වර්ධනය වී සුන්දර වැනි ය;
      Harebells හා මිහිරි ලිලී මල් සඳහා thornless වර්ධනය පෙන්වන්න,
      එහෙත්, එහි සියලු කටු රෝස ඒ දෙකම අබිබවා.

    2. Sorry, correction:

      හාවා සීනුව හා මිහිරි ලිලී මල්, කටු වර්ධනය තොරව පෙන්වන්න
      එහෙත්, එහි සියලු කටු රෝස ඒ දෙකම අබිබවා.
