Last lily

The last of my lilies started blooming last Friday, the 13th. Black Beauty, an Oriental hybrid. The Regale trumpet never bloomed, which was a disappointment, but they did go in rather late. It grew but never produced a flower. If I had the chance, I would design my box in the children's garden differently next time. The leeks were planted too close together and didn't fan out in a line the way I wanted them to. I would probably mass them together next time for a better effect. It was a good lesson though. Sometimes you learn the most from your mistakes and not your successes.
