Mount Cook

I planted one of the Mount Cook bulbs to my balcony and it sure has large blooms.

What surprised me is that it also has strong scent. Strongest I have ever faced. I can smell it when sitting in my living room.

Such an outstanding Lily. Happy to have it.

Red Chief

This is the first year I have red California Poppies growing. Only have had the orange color before.

I was a bit surprised that they turn more to orange when blooming longer. For some reason I was expecting them to stay red. You learn new things every day.

Well, I like them anyway. The color is so strong and vigorous.
