We went to the Keene Flower Show today, and enjoyed pretending that it was spring. It was pretty crowded for a Friday afternoon, but not so crowded that it wasn’t fun. We took Ginny with us, and she seemed to enjoy it as well.
The only thing I bought for the garden were lily bulbs. I got 25 Oriental lilies and 20 Asiatic from Maplecrest Lilies, who were vending at the show. I also couldn’t resist a couple of sprays of cut flowers as well. I had them separate them by color, because I want to control where I plant them out, rather than just randomly putting the colors all mixed up. I didn’t buy any additional Star Gazer lilies, because the ones we planted two years ago did so well, but I don’t think I need any more. I want to find somewhere else to line the path with lilies. Hmmm.
