Thank You!

To the Fed Ex delivery man who came back to give me some Lycoris radiata bulbs, I want to say


Thank you!


The red spider lilies are blooming beautifully.  They are a delight to see, and I am thrilled to have them in my garden.


I know I promised that I would give you a rose cutting (non-patented, of course) in return, and I apologize for not doing that already.  I have not forgotten.


I am trying to root some cuttings now, and if they take, I promise to order something that requires delivery by Federal Express.  Then, I can make a delivery to you!

    1. Oh, sorry about your bad luck with them. I was so excited to see mine blooming - I wondered if they would make it!

  2. Fun! When I worked from home the Fedex guy was great.

    Love the bulbs too. They are so nice to see this time of year.

    1. I do love the red. And I think the red and purple and yellow in this bed make a nice color combo.

    1. I have always loved them, but I always seem to try to order them after they're sold out. I was thrilled to get them as a gift!

  6. They are gorgeous! I've only seen the yellow ones before. Not for our climate I'm afraid. Or do you have to bring them in over winter too?

    1. They can overwinter here, thank goodness, since I'm not one to go to all the trouble of digging up bulbs. Interesting that you've only seen the yellow ones. The red ones are the only kind I see around here.

  7. I mostly see the FedEx lady and the Mailman. Fedex just delivered me some germander from High Country Gardens. Fall is such an exciting time to plant. And then we wait...until spring!

    I have two Spider Lilies. I would love more! They seem to last longer than the ox-blood lilies I recently had blooming. Maybe because the weather is just a bit cooler!

    1. I think the spider lilies will multiply, so hopefully you and I both will have lots more in future years. I have been thinking about adding ox-blood lilies to my garden. Good to know they don't last long.

  8. Beautiful! I love "passalong plants" and those spider lilies look very happy!

    1. I agree that passalong plants are the best! (Unless they're being passed along because they're invasive - I've had that happen!)

  9. Nice bulbs, but the rose on your latest blog title...WOW!

    1. Thanks! I adore that rose, too. It's Charles Darwin.

    1. They do look like fireworks! And they burst open about as fast, too! :)

  12. Very special, I suspect they are not for the cool climate so I will just enjoy yours.

    1. You're right - they're only hardy in zones 7 through 9, so unfortunately, not for cool climates. :(

  14. Aren't you sweet and I love those lilies.
