Blooming Friday-Big and Small

It’s Blooming Friday again and the theme this week is Big and Small. I just can’t wait to show off the first big bloom of my lilium. I was told that they were from the Netherlands. However no name of the cultivar was given or written. Not wanting to buy plants that might not survive our weather I played safe and bought only two. One did not make it but the one that bloomed…! Ah, I’ve been admiring it every single day and the fragrance is wonderful. Getting a whiff of the heady scent while watering the plants or while pottering around my yard is such a good feeling. Now I know what I’ll be growing by the dozen next year!!

On the other hand the ‘small‘ blooms are of the Oxalis, a common weed that threatens to take over bare soil…if there’s any left! But I love these blooms so much that I’ve pulled up the best ‘weeds’ and planted them in a pot. It makes me happy to see these cheerful little faces!

For more Blooming Friday posts, head over to Katarina’s at ROSES AND STUFF.

I wish you all a wonderful weekend!

    i like that weed, when given particular purpose it is not a weed anymore. The photo is also lovely.

      Andrea, thanks! We have two types with purple blooms. I prefer this one. It’s a little less vigorous in its growth than its cousin…spent this morning weeding and the tiny bulbs can go deep down!

    Lovely Asiatic lilies! I got cheated by a vendor who showed me these flowers and gave me bulbs of some other lily:( At least you did not get cheated! I enjoyed your last post on the mango blooms.

    • kanak7 says:

      Thanks Padma…yes, I remember your post about being cheated! I’d love to grow other colours later. Glad you liked going through my last post!:-)))

    Weed, whats a weed? Mostly plant in it’s wrong surroundings, placed were it do no harm they can be charming, I find your Oxalis really sweet. Wonder if it’s the same oxalis we buy in pots?

    • kanak7 says:

      Mia…I can’t say about that. The ones sold here are with the purple leaves. All the other varieties with the green leaves/lavender blooms have a knack of growing in all the wrong places!

    I have no Lilys … the lillybeetles eat the up 😦 Lucky me I can enjoy your photos 🙂

  14. How beautiful! These remind me of the stargazer lily.

  15. Anette says:

    It’s beautiful and I’m sure it smells good too. I do like the little “weed”, it’s so pretty. Good of you to “save” it. /Anette

  16. Lovely Kanak! I am sure it is delicious to inhale as well. Have a great weekend.
