It’s been wet, wet, wet here in New Jersey. My garden is happy.
I am trying to detect which kind of lily this is. See Wikipedia for the varieties of lilies. I have others that seem to be day lilies; they bloom on and off throughout the summer. This one blooms once per bud, then it usually gets knocked over and that’s it for the season. My guess: it is some kind of Asiatic lily, because of the leaves. The stem looks like these Asiatic Lilies.

What about dayliliy?
I’m thinking the other ones I have, with the broad green leafy bottoms, are daylilies. These have fat, shoot right up kind of stems. Maybe I should add a photo of the stem. Except I don’t have one right now.
This Lily is gorgeous…but I have no idea what type it might be.
That is a beautiful day lily but as to what type I have no idea.
Have a great day,
It’s gorgeous, so pretty with the raindrops left on it and the color is breathtaking. I hope someone identifies it for you. Thank you for sharing and have a great week.
A very fresh looking lily! And a wonderful color! Beautiful shot!
Thank you for posting on Today’s Flowers!
I don’t know the type of the Lily, the one I have is different. Very nice!
Leora..I wanted to thank you so much for continuing to lend your support regarding my Mother’s illness. I know it gets difficult to think of something to say and you have gone way above and beyond the call of duty to come up with kind things to say and I so appreciate it…..I really do….Michelle
Michelle, it’s the best I can do, to try to listen.
now there’s a vibrant color for you sandy
Such a lovely image, which is enhanced with water drops.
I think it is an Asiatic type, as well. There are a lot of hybrids out there and it gets a little difficult to tell them apart sometimes.
I know what you mean about the rain. Connecticut has been wet though that has extended our planting season. I am ready for some sunshine.
Thanks for suggesting that you also think it’s an Asiatic lily.
The sun came out again today, so I enjoyed the sunny weather, which wasn’t too hot. I don’t mind the rain if it’s not every day. And if it cools off the heat.
I LOVE the colour of that lily!
Love the color!
Always lovely after a rain shower.
My post is here: Carletta’s Captures.
No idea, but I suspect it would make me sneeze. A lot. I’m terribly allergic to lilies, which I discovered when I received a HUGE bouquet of them from my husband’s company after my daughter was born. It was so bad that I had to give them to my neighbor.
Beautiful lily and its color! It looks so charming with those waterdrops on its elegant petals.
I like this one lot better than your last flower pic with water drops…:)
Do you mean the dianthus:
Is it the flower or the photo?
yes:) thats the pic… now that I look at it, I think I like the large drops on last pic but I like this flower better hehe… and may be next time you need to try different perspective on water drops – may be from side instead of top:)
