Who Says Lilies Are Short Plants?

Betsy and the lilies. Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. June 14, 2009.

As most of you know, Betsy and I grow roses, but we also have lilies as well.  As you can see in the picture above, the lilies are now in bloom.  I couldn’t resist getting this picture of Betsy looking up at one of them.

I must admit that I cheated just a little with this picture.  The lily is in a raised flower bed and Betsy is on a walkway beside the flower bed.  The lily plant is really only about five feet tall.  But if you look in the upper right-hand corner you’ll see part of a lily that is even taller.  The white lily is just under six feet tall.

But regardless of the height of the lilies we think they both look good and have a wonderful fragrance.

    LOL George that Lily plant is the same height as me. When I was out at the Tulsa Rose Garden a few weeks ago I had a hard time taking pictures of some of the roses because they were so tall. Betsy and the lilies are very pretty. 😉

    If only you could convey the fragrance! I understand.
    Fun shot.

    They are so pretty and even though not at tall as they look at first glance, they are still TALL!

    That is such a great photo!!! Such cuties, the lillies and Betsy.

  5. Fishing Guy Says:

    George: Sure, get Betsy the giant to stand by the plant to make it look big, just kidding. That is one big lily, did you test it for steroids?

  6. Mary Says:

    Great shot! Betsy must be a wee little thing….just kidding. I’m short, but I don’t think I’ve ever look upward at a lily…but you might have some that I would.

    Congratulations for the beautiful garden. Betsy fits perfectly in the garden. She is as beautiful as your lilies. She is the prettiest flower in your garden.

  10. Susie Says:

    My neighbor has a couple of lilies that are almost this tall. Amazing!

  11. Tricia Says:

    Oh Oh! Very nice! They’re so very pretty – including Betsy! You’re so sweet!

  12. Rose Says:

    I did not know they would grow that tall!

  13. LEEDRA Says:

    Not sure if Betsy looks shorter, or the lily looks tall. Actually Betsy is taller than I had her pictured. Maybe it is just because you make her appear to be short.

  14. Tina Says:

    These ARE some tall lilies! Miracle Grow or is Betsy really kneeling? Just joking.
    I think it is very nice that you both love to grow flowers..my hubby will help me plant them but the weeding, feeding, pampering is all mine! 😉
