My Blooming Lilies

My Bedford, New York garden is filled with gorgeous, bright, and fragrant lilies - I hope you've seen some of them on my Instagram page @MarthaStewart48.

Lilium is a genus of herbaceous flowering plants that grow from bulbs, all with large prominent flowers. The beautiful blooms can be enjoyed as cut flowers in an arrangement or growing in the garden - some at two feet, and others as tall as eight feet. I love lilies, and have been growing them for years - Asiatic, Martagon, Candidum, American, Longiflorum, Trumpet and Aurelian, Oriental, and various interdivisional hybrids.

Here are more photos of the gorgeous lilies growing in my gardens this week, enjoy.
