A lovely deep red Lillium. Photo by Louise Peacock

A Lily for Dennett

Sorry It’s Late…

This one came out two days ago. I took the photo thinking that my friend Dennett would really like it, then never got around to publishing.

It is really nice to see this Lily returning this year with no damage from the annoying Lily beetle, which destroys anything in the Lillium family. This year I mounded up coffee grounds around the bases of all the Lillium which is supposed to deter this pest, and so far, so good.
