We start digging for the few orders we have this following week.
Next year should be a good year for seeing colour in the garden.
I will soon have new photos of some of the Asiatic Lilies brought over from the Fox Lily Ranch. It will be nice to have a fresh look at some of the Alberta bred lilies that I have not had a chance to see before this summer.
Work has also begun on a CD directory of the registered Alberta Lilies. Hope fully a good portion of it will be finished for this fall or early spring to share a first edition.
Have a great weekend.
