Tiger Lilly burning bright

This Tiger Lilly grows by the front door. It's blooms every year. First one, then two, and this year, three. The plant produces bulblets that grow at the base of each leaf. I took some this year and put them in dirt. Hopefully I get some new plants that I can put somewhere in the back yard. These bulbs were planted over 10 years ago. They were planted by the original owners of this house. The plants are in a very bad spot and they still grow.

Summer continues its assault on my time. I do get to the garden but not as often as I'd like. I have harvested much and enjoyed all of it. My Sugar Baby watermelons are sweeter than ever and my Minnesota Midget canteloupes are pretty darn good too. I have eaten my fill of tomatoes, squash, peppers and now, the cucumbers began to mature. I have learned lots of stuff this season!


  1. Woh! this lily is so amazing. Yeah looks like tiger... 'fierce' looking he he... Planted 10 years ago and still blooming... wow! That's a really good and productive plant ;-)

  2. Hi Stephanie,
    Personally, I think they misnamed this flower. Tigers have stripes. This flower should be called a Leopard Lilly! Well, nobody asked me when the flower got named so there you go. :-)

  3. Lovely bright bloom!! the flower is facing down, is it very heavy?

  4. Oh ok. Still look fierce to me :-) I agree with you on the tree that is infront of my house. A fruit tree would be better. Have a great day!

  5. Hi! Your uke cover of Dylan's "Make You Feel My Love" is great! Would you please list the chords?
