Canada lilies by the highway

leave a comment »

On a drive to Chipman today we came back via the old Trans Canada (now Highway 105) through Grand Lake Meadows. The Canada lily (also called meadow lily), Lilium canadense, is in bloom. Each plant holds its lily chandelier above the other field vegetation. They are bright orange with dark spots and hang downward.








This seems to be the time of year for lilies. I have three varieties of day-lily in my garden and when one finishes its blooming, another begins.


All my best,
