That is really fantastic! Like Barbara above, I saw snow today, these lilies certainly brightened my day!

Hi Steve and Jan, I have always been impressed with the durability and long life of the asiatic lilies. These certainly are no exception. Very nicely presented.

James, daylilies from our garden last...well..only a day. But I believe that these are some species of Asian lilies. One bloom that it had on the 14th has started to curl but that's it and other buds continue to open..amazing.

I just put the little packet of stuff that comes with them in the water. That''s it.

Barbara, It was 65 the other day and I had the convertible top down. It is 34 now and we got a half inch of snow last night.

Andrea, these are the longest lasting flowers I have ever gotte with the exception of carnations. We use those for open houses...most of the time I can get at least 2 weeks out of them.

Bill, 2 feet? You extreme northerners are a hardy breed!

William, I still have not gotten my macro lens, but the close ups were not bad for the Canon kit lens at 12" distance.

Valerie, I use Picnik a lot in my neighborhood posts. It's free and easy.

I import from my camera into Picasa, clean up the photos then export at 1600 pixels to a Picasa web album to save disk space.

Picnik has an easy download from Picasa web albums all set up. Just drag and drop into the story line on the right, save, hit "share" and then copy the embed code into Active Rain.

Since you mention having lillies in your garden, you probably know about the stamen stains, but as a former and still sometime florist, your title and slideshow, (about your Asiatic Lillies) caught my eye! Particularly, because the STAMENS are still on the flowers.  I have ruined more than a few pieces of clothing at work, removing those pretties, and most florists use latex gloves when removing them so as not to stain our hands almost permanently! (When removing 100's of them!). I never give them a chance to hit the tabletop, tile, carpet or hardwood at my house, they are plucked in the sink! =o) LOVELY presentation!

Yikes!  Maybe I can give them to my daughters to use as eyeliner :-)
