In the last week, all of the Oriental Lilies that we have planted in our various flowerbeds have begun to bloom. Some plants we purchased ourselves and know the variety name, while others are unnamed varieties gifted to us by gardening friends. A few people find these lilies a little too loud for their tastes. But I love their super-saturated colors and strong, knockout scents. If it's a warm day and even the smallest breeze is blowing, you can smell them a mile away.
