I love lilies! Every year when they are marked down at the end of the season (bulbs) I buy some. Often the package shows a variety of colors leaving me not knowing what color would come out after planting. Much to my surprise, there were 2 of my favorite colors! I get to enjoy them in bloom for up to a week before they fade. Photos will always show the beauty of life of my new found surprise!
My garden in York, SC
This is a picture of a beautiful Lily in my garden. I have a lot of flowers blooming now, but I love the colors of this one.

I bought a mixed mystery bag of lilies last summer. Planting them in the late summer/early fall, I was hoping for them to bloom this spring. I just love the surprise colors that also happen to be 2 of my favorite colors.
The bulbs were planted along the fence line facing the sun, in York, S.C.

I was captivated by the close up of this lily and its sensual nature. Long intrigued with patterns in nature, I was surprised to see that human forms are duplicated as well.
I love all the lilies I have in my garden. Unfortunately, this year especially, I only got to see them for a short length of time. The deer think my garden is a salad bar and ate every lily within 3 days of blooming.
The rain this past winter and the cold did our gardens well in Murrieta, CA. I had at least 10 stalks of blooms with 6-8 blooms per stalk per plant and I have 2 plants.
The crinum lily has large, fragrant blooms that emerge on leafless stems from bulbs that thrive in damp or moist areas, along streams and in marshes. They are a southern US garden favorite. This page contains crinum lily photos.

This is a lily that I grew in my flowerbed.
Thanks for sharing -they seem to be "basking" in the sunshine! (07/17/2010)
I took this at night using the landscape feature. It just really made this colors pop. Now the blooms are gone, but I know that they will be back next year
