    These are the last of my lilies to bloom. Planted last fall. I am not sure if they are CasaBlanca. I dont remember what I ordered, but it was from B&D Lillies.

    They are very fragrant: I smell hints of vanilla and honey suckle, then a light sandlewood musk.

    Thank you! I love taking pictures of the flowers. They are quite beautiful. Yes! I wait too. Every morning I go out, to see if they opened. I do this several times a day..it is exciting. Then when they do bloom, I smell, admire, take pictures and admire some more. I used to have some stargazers, but they didnt do well where I had them. I dug them up to move them, and they never sprouted..

    Those are very pretty. This is the 1st year I have actually cut any of my lilies, for a vase. I am impressed how long they stay beautiful. Cant wait to see more pics!!

    I always cut my Lily’s. Pinch out the pollen and keep in frig at night last twice as long if refrigerated at night.
    My Lily’s are budding and next week hope to have star gazers and casa blankas.
    This lily popped up..I don’t remember what it is .. fog gone it. Will have to find the order from a Couple years ago
