Summer Solstice

20 Jun

Yellow Asiatic Lilly

New to me this year from Breck's

Orange Asiatic Lilly

Nothing says summer like the sunny, warm colors of these lilies.  Enjoy!

Asiatic lilies are great for cutting.  They will easily last a week with buds opening as full blooms drop petals.

For my office

I ordered these bulbs from www.brecks.com.  They are very hardy and last for years.

    Speaking of the summer solstice, at the precise time of the solstice you can stand a raw egg on its end. Something about the gravitational pull being equal allows this phenomena. My dad turned me on to this trick and I tried it. It takes patience to keep holding the egg upright and letting go, only to have is flop over on its side, then all of a sudden, it stands upright…almost magical. ❤ pimla15

      Does that work for a winter solstice also?

        Actually I stand corrected. It won’t work at all on the solstice. It’s the equinox I was thinking of. And it will work for for spring and fall.
