    The first oriental lily has started blooming. I love them. I have a bunch, this, red, orange, yellow & some that are white & pink.

    These are probably my favorite color I have.

    My calla lilies are blooming. We planted them many years ago and they never grew. We redid the beds a few years back and apparently the bulbs were still there. We chopped them up with the tiller, and suddenly they sprouted all over the place.

    Kind of like the crepe myrtle in the front yard that we tried everything to get to grow and it stayed straggly, barely a foot tall. I got tired of it, mowed it down and it took off. Now its probably 20 ft tall and gorgeous.

    All of the caladiums I planted and the crimson reds come up- I do like them the best but still only two in a bag of a few bulbs-- there was three or four colors planted and only two popped out and were the reds, lol.

    After looking at the wondrous beauties I'm almost ashamed to confess that my tomato plants are reached the grand height of 6" with the cukes coming in at about 5". Cold weather slowed them right down. The thunderstorm predicted for today didn't happen, so not it's predicted for tomorrow afternoon. That usually gives plants a good boost.

    It is really dry here in TX - have a drip system in the garden and flowerbeds and I have to run it every couple of days - 90's+ temps here. The water we have is so chlorinated that it does squat for the plants. Going to try to hang gutters on the chicken coop and catch rain water in barrels to see if that will help. The veggie season here is starting to wane - altho it is still amazing to see broccoli plants that I have growing in the shade still sprouting little heads of broccoli here and there. LOTS of swallowtail butterfly caterpillars on my parsley so that's a nice thing to see!

    OK, I'm going to be a bit of a know it all, but I am pretty certain those are either an Asiatic, or an Asiatic hybrid. Do they have any perfume?
