Flutter-by


I wish I could take credit for the above shot, but it was captured by the lovely and talented Dopette, official gardener of The Inside Dope.

Her hard work and skill provides a lot of great subject matter (only exceeded by the Dopette herself) and it seems that every day something else is blooming.

Her garden attracts a lot of butterflies (such as the pictured Western Tiger Swallowtail) as well as a few hummingbirds. (the walking stick hasn't made a repeat appearance this year, alas.)

Continuing the cavalcade of lilies, here's some shots of a couple more varieties. (and typically, I'm not sure what they are.)

Are the white and red ones Stargazer lilies?

Huck, you're a damn fine lilly spotter.

I finally got confirmation, and you are indeed, correct.

I tried to find which kind they were by looking online, and was quickly overwhelmed by the several hundred varieties of lillies.

But I was able to dig up the little plastic spike thing for the plants today and confirmed that the spotted white lillies are indeed called Stargazer.

Well done!
