I love lilies !! Unfortunately, I have not done a very good job of maintaining my flower beds this summer. It's been too darn hot. I feel so badly when I go outside in our yard and see weeds here and there along with the dead flower heads that I really, really need to clip off. My neighbors must think I'm terrible !! The flowers are just another reminder of the hard summer I have been having, but that's another story. On the bright side, if the weather cools down for awhile, I will have to get the flower beds into shape by autumn. AND, my lilies did have gorgeous blooms this year even with my neglect !!
