Summer . . . Clouds and Flowers
It's past Mid-Summer by 2 weeks, hot and muggy now, but our mid-Wisconsin 86 degrees is nothing compared to the misery (102 degrees) in New York and the Northeast.
The glorious freckled white lily is called "Muscadet," a gift from Agnes Dahlman. The petals span 10 inches -- honest truth! The lilies below are both the Orienpet type. As Agnes said, they are lilies on steroids; very vigorous, nice and tall and sturdy, and prolific bloomers.
