Lilies, again.....

Yes I know I go on about certain star plants - but had to share this latest lily with you! I have been growing them in a pot, which I have just brought inside while it is flowering. Quite by coincidence turns out to be the perfect colour combo to go with the front room cushions. Excellent. Chartreuse green and the gorgeous dark red.
The very dark stamen (??) are spectacular. Like velvet. 

 Have been thrilled with the lilies in a pot idea this year, especially the Christmas lilies, which filled the house with fragrance. They last far longer in a pot, than if they have been picked for a vase. When they are done, out they go behind the shed again until next year! Couldn't be easier.
Perfect match with the cushions!

  1. It's a perfect match indeed - but what a fabulously intense colour it is. Like a watermelon, but dark, dark, dark. Beautiful!! (Can imagine the scent is beautiful too.) xx
