I'm on the run again!

My Lillies are the most beautiful thing in my yard right now, I just love these little ladies!! I am thinking about moving them, tho. I've had them for about 8 or 9 years, and they are on the East side of the house. They bloom every year, but they should have gotten a little fuller by now, and I still only get about 3 stalks every year. (I want about 20) so Mr Wonderful said he would move them to a sunnier spot? Any suggestions? I just love these, my heart soars every year when they bloom.
I am off to the Library and Video store this morning, because we are leaving for the "north country" and Elly and DD#3 are going with us this time, so we need "busy stuff" in case there is rain. Our little sanctuary is going to be a zoo this time, tho, for the holiday weekend. Good for the resort, bad for the regulars. But, there will be plenty of activities to keep two girls busy.

I hope you all have a safe and wonderful holiday...I will pause for a moment and try to fathom the depth of what this day means to us here in the most wonderful United States of America.
oh, and have a blast!

Have fun this holiday weekend - stay safe!! I think Asiatic lillies like yours like lots of sun - although I'm not 100% sure. I know most lillies thrive in sun.

The lilies are truly glorious! I can see why you'd like lots more of them....sorry, no knowledge about planting them, tho.
Have a great get-a-way! Hugs, Finn

Have a great weekend.....I love those lilies ....I am not a gardener...I like to look at nice things from the garden but that is about it...good luck - hope the replanting is successful.....reminds me of the saying "bloom where you are planted"...perhaps you could tell the lilies that! LOL

I used to have some yellow lilies growing in pots which were lovely while they lasted. Yours are beautiful. My daughter likes the pink ones. I'm not sure but I think they like a sunny position.
Have a great holiday weekend :)

Have a great holiday! Hopefully it won't rain too much! And I love your lillies, mine have doubled in size in 5 years! They are in a pot and I think I am going to have to move some!

Oh yeah - Lillies like sun! Mine are on the west side of the house which gets a lot of sun!
