I live to the south of Middlesbrough, North Yorkshire. Somewhat overcome by the work needed in the garden, I share bits of it! Twitter @oldgreyheron
It’s great to see and smell the lilies as they return
Just coming into bloom!
And the flowers just keep coming! #perfume #scent
There was just one flower opening on Tuesday, now there are three with many more to come! #lilylove
And so the anticipation was rewarded as the day progressed!
Great series of photos
Anticipation! It’s opening as the day goes on!
Yesterday’s promise kept!
Promise of things to come! #bud
Healthy new potted lilies from Sarah Raven have unwelcome visitors. The lily beetles I found are now ex-beetles... but are there more? Haven't seen them in the garden for more than a decade.
Oh no lillie beetle 👿👹
Quite hard to destroy too!
@oldgreyheron you need to check regularly as they are prolific breeders!
Loads of those little devils up here 😠
I'm checking mine daily clear so far probably shouldn't have said that
They seem to be really bad this year, eaten a whole pot of my lillies this year 😕
@hayleyaj @kathy Found two more of the beasts this morning. They really dislike being knocked off the leaves - can't bring myself to squish them with gloved fingers though! ☹️
@oldgreyheron l was like that at first but they show no mercy, so now I pick them off and stand on them but hate doing it 😯
@oldgreyheron be ruthless! 😈
