In the South, summer is in full bloom and so are my Asiatic Lilies. Last winter was so brutal, we had doubts lilies would even survive. A lot of plants did not make it through the winter but Asiatic Lilies have never bloomed better.
It is not just lilies, Cicadas, June Bugs and at night Fireflies are in abundance too, (we were told a hard winter means less bugs). Guess no one knows the secrets of mother nature.
It is 94 F (34.5 C) outside and I have to hand water a lot of plants, thanks to the watering restrictions by our town, can't turn on the sprinkler system today, but the plants are thirsty. If I can drink water when I am thirsty why can't they?
