Almost Butter


These are pink from the front, a sort of washed out, not terribly appealing color. I like them with the sun behind them though. I wonder if adding something like Miracid to the soil would bump up the color a little. When I had them planted up near the house they were a much nicer shade.

What is it about back-lit flowers . . ?
I guess it's the glow the sun imparts.
Wish it were a little less 'glowing' in my neighborhood.
Supposed to hit 100 plus today.
Whew!

I don't know about yours, but any lilies I planted had to be dug up and spread out after a few years or the color faded. My iris's were the same. I had some that were almost white before I spread them out.
