The surprise lilies have been transplanted from their pot into the garden that is too shady for growing lettuce. I might as well enjoy blossoms if I can't grow my produce. These had been in a pot for more than a year - I was waiting till after their usual bloom season to transplant them. August and September passed with no flowers in the pot. But last month the leaves shot up just as they are supposed to and the pot was wall to wall leaves! Probably all the bulbs had survived the trauma of being crowded into the pot. Now each little bunch has plenty of room to spread their toes and grow. Next summer maybe I'll get more surprise blossoms. Here's how the ones looked in the front garden last September ... barely holding their own against the aggressive ferns.
