Aromatic Asiatic Lily

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 30 July 2020 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Yesterday marked 2,400 photos I have posted on Aminus3. Seems like so little for 12 years of posts. Many fellow Aminus3 members have posted more than twice as much!

A surprise asiatic lily that seemed to catch me by surprise in our perennial garden. All other lilies were already spent with the foliage gone and this one bloomed with quite an aromatic scent.

Photo captured July 20, 2020.

Cette fleur symbole de ex-monarchie du Royaume de France est plus que tenace et ne veut pas périr... bien au contraire... la preuve.
