My oriental lilies are prolifically lovely this year. Every other year the dear deer snack on the buds before they can bloom. Finally! A wonderful show for us. The smell. The gaudy show-offy loveliness cannot be ignored. This is no demure wallflower. I'm glad that something takes over when most of my other blooms have retired from the too hot too muggy weather. Front and center, Stargazer always steals the show.
