Fit to Bust

It has rained here constantly for over 24 hours (well, it is Summer in Britain!), and my Oriental Lily has been sucking up the lovely rainwater.......and now the biggest bud is simply straining at the seams.......

Not to be outdone, my Oriental Lily has some lily companions - another reliable annual bloomer is my precious Day Lilies. The bulbs were rescued from under the shed and planted to see what they were....
Yet another bud ready to burst into bloom......but each flower of this lily will only last 24 hours - hence the name.

They are going to look fabulous when they fully bloom :)

It *has* been rather wet hasn't it?

Apparently 38 rainfall records have been broken over the last 48 hours!

In the South-West we had more rainfall in one day than we expected in the *whole* of June.
