  3. Phillip, that's your reward for having to shovel snow. Would I rather not shovel snow or have lilies? A little snow wouldn't be bad. They're so gorgeous.

  4. Two of my favorites and a week or two from bloom here... love the orienpets but many are chlorotic this season from all the rain and cool temps we've had... great pics! Larry

  5. Musadet, a nice white with tiny red spots around the center is also a must have. It is the most fragrant one in the garden. My Golden Stardust
    was just starting to open and the storm today broke it off. I staked it, so hopefully the remaining blooms will open. Mary

  6. Mary, I had Muscadet in a container for many years but this year it did not reappear. It was always loaded with blooms so it is one that I want again.

  7. I particularly like "Scheherazade", however I know people who'd have trouble pronouncing that after a Saturday night party, ha.

  8. Rob, I have to stop and think before I pronounce the name, drinking or not. :)
