My Stargazer lily unfurled the first blossom of the season yesterday. There are a total of 13 buds and the weather forecast is mild so I think there will be a real show this year - not to mention the fragrance! Last year they began to open just as we were struck with a 10-day heat wave that withered them as fast as they opened. They are planted next to the patio and the back door so there is ample opportunity to "stop and smell the flowers". Happy Summer!
