Lily time

Sommeren har nådd sitt høydepunkt og hagen blomstrer på alle hold. Blomstringen ligger faktisk noe foran i forhold til kalenderen grunnet en eksepsjonelt varm vår og sommer.
Nå er det liljenes tur . . .
The summer has reached it’s ‘all time high’ and in the garden flowers are blooming where ever you look! Due to an exceptional warm spring and summer, blooming is in fact way ahead compared to the calendar . . .
Now it’s the time for lilies!
Det rare er jo at de vanligste pollinatorene våre, som humler og bier, ser ut til å være ganske uintreresserte? I hvertfall foreløpig!  Kanskje er det noe de venter på . . .?

The strange thing, however, is that none of our common pollinators – like bees or bumblebees – seem to be particularly interested?  It’s like they are all waiting for something to happen . . .?

  1. Apart from my Day lilies I have never been successful in growing them due to a beetle The Red Lilly Beetle which decimates them .. This year the bulbs of two came back up, and low and behold flowered.. No sign of the beetle.. 🙂 Hooray! ..

      There’s usually a way around such problems. We struggle a bit with the brown iberian snail, but planting its favourites in urns and binding cotton bands soaked in a salty solution around the top of the urn helps. There are also plants the snails dislike, thus the favourites
      will have to grow in between! 🙂

      • Now the tip about the cotton bands a good one thank you.

        • Seenorway says:

          Just remember to use a wide band and tie it right underneath the top where the edge curves outward. That way the salt solution won’t get washed out so easily!
          Another way is to put your favourites on a small plastic table. Put each leg into a small metal box (like the box candles used outside on the cemetary and elsewhere.
          Then fill up the boxes with a mix of salt and coffee remains.
          🙂 I nearly came to write ‘boxers’ instead of boxes, but – that wouldn’t have been right!

          • Haha… 🙂 to your last paragraph.. And I will most definitely try that… 😀 thank you.. ❤ Though we do have our hedgehog family which is helping keep slugs and snails down.. 🙂

              That would be useful! Over here they have been trying with ‘moscus ducks’ that love these snails, but the problem is that their shit across the lawn are just as messy as the snails! 🙂

            • Haha… Yes.. I had some lovely pictures from my web-motion camera I put out on the lawn of babies… I have a little hedgehog house since March.. and they say if you build it they come.. They certainly have.. I put hedgehog food out in the box and some sleep in the day in it.. I am delighted with their presence.. 😀
