How lovely, and I imagine the scent is just as lovely, if not more so.

I recently bought a Golden Stargazer in bloom in a pot and it scented the vehicle on the way home. Last night I caught a wiff of it from probably 20+' away. I think I would like an Oriental lily or 2 in lots of places, just for the heavenly scent alone.

Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful! I agree with Sue about the scent. That smell is one of my favorites!

I planted a bunch of lily bulbs this year, but they are not blooming anything like yours. Most are stunted looking and only a foot or so tall with buds. I have high hopes for next year though!

Enjoy those blooms and scent!
